Shortly after my post yesterday I took baby A to the doctors.  They took him off zantac and soy formula.  We will now be using a formula that has rice starch in it.  They told me to try the new formula until monday. 

The vomiting got much worse 10pm last night he was becoming dehydrated.  So off to the ER we went.  The ER docs were puzzled and didn't have any suggestions that I haven't already tried.

He has been able to keep down several ounce since 4am.  Fingers crossed

Im having feeding/ vomiting issues with baby A who is 3 1/2 months old.  He has been a spitter since birth and was placed on soy formula at 4 weeks old.  In the two months that we have had him he has had several vomiting episodes lasting 2-3 days.  When I say vomiting I mean he pukes the whole bottle. 

About two weeks ago the pediatrician (who sucks) put him on zantact twice a day.  It made no difference.  Its been about three weeks since his last puke session.

Tuesday night he vomited his 3am feeding about 30 minutes after he took it.  He was fine during the day Wednesday.  Last night he vomited both the 3am and 6am bottles. Both times it was within 30 minutes of drinking.

He burps well, we feed him upright and have lowered the amount he gets at each feeding. There is no consistency to the vomiting.  Sometimes he's fussy other times he vomits and smiles.  Any suggestions?

Where do i begin?

First im sorry for the lack of posts we've been having major computer problems.  We went from three computers between the hubs and I down to one.  Hubbies school work trumps blogging so I never get on the computer. 

We have had the boys for a little over seven weeks.  The baby (baby A) is now three months old.  Big brother D is 20 months old.  Baby A has been sick non-stop since we got him.  Two ear infections, vomiting, watery eyes, snotty nose, unexplained fever, etc.

Other than all of the sickness he is developmentally on target! 

D has allergies nothing too serious.  He is delayed in speech and gross motor skills.  When he first came to live with us he didn't even know his name. He screamed constantly and didn't understand simple things.  For example get your cup, lets go bye bye. He has grown leaps and bounds in the seven weeks that we have had him.

Mom has been following her case plan to some extent.  Bio Dad is a bum and has only showed up once in seven weeks.

Hubby is finishing up his final semester in his senior year of architecture school so ive been flying solo.

Shortly after my post on January 30th, just two days before my due date with the little bean we lost I discovered that we are pregnant again! Im 14 weeks today and due October 9th!!! We've had an ultrasound and everything looks good. I bought a doppler so I can listen to the heartbeat whenever I worry. Morning sickness has caused me to loose 8 lbs so far. Im one tired mama!

Aside from computer issues ive just been way to tired to blog!
