One Month Checkup

Today we had Sophia's one month wellness check. We've been looking forward to talking to the doctor about Sophia's constant fussiness to see if there was anything that we could do for her. We had already changed her formula because she was so fussy and gassy. She would scrunch her body up in pain and we felt so bad for her. She's gotten better since the switch, but she would still cry inconsolably throughout the day. We knew there had to be something wrong. Unfortunately, we were right and the doctor diagnosed her with silent reflux. She'll have to take medication for it for the next four months or so and then we should be able to take her off the Zantac. We're hoping that this will help; we feel so bad that she's been suffering with this for a whole month.

Other than the reflux, she is doing very well. She weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces and measured 20 1/2 inches. She's in the 50th percentile for both; perfect! The doctor was impressed with her focus and how well she was holding up her head.

Here's hoping that we'll all be able to enjoy some peace soon!
