My son has been fighting a battle since he was about 2 weeks old. He spits up. Alot. And for a breastfeed baby, it surprised the crap out of me when I first saw it. Its one of the benifits of breastfeeding that I rather enjoy(ed).

At first they thought it was a milk allergy, so I quite the consumption of dairy, that should show you the love of a mother, to give up cheese!?. No change. At one point they wanted to pull him off my the breast and try a formula. I fought that with HELLO! Breastmilk is easier to digest, and much healthier, if not, I dont think he would be gaining weight the way he has while doing all this spitting up.

Alot of self research and several doctor visits later, we're thinking reflux. Medication isnt working. So today were having an ultrasound done on his little stomach to see of its a muscle problem not letting his milk stay down.

I hope there is nothing wrong with my son, but I hope this finds something so we can get this fixed and he can keep his food down. I dont care about the extra laundry, and hes gaining weight just fine, its just he has to be miserable at times. And to be honest, maybe he will sleep better since he will be able to actually able to lay flat again!
