Hi.. I am debating whether my DD has reflux.. here are the symptoms: coughing randomly, very sicky after bottles even hours after feeding, gagging and crying when feeding, loss of appetite, fussy, irritable at times in early evening and arching back and pulling legs up. Has anyone else experienced this and what do I do?? X

When you say loss of appetite, how much was DD taking and how much is she taking now? Is she having roughly 2.5 floz per pound in weight in 24 hours?

Some of the symptoms could fit in with Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA). Have a read of this on Allergy UK and see what you think smile

Well she is 11 pounds 5 oz, she was taking between 5 to 6 oz bottle every 3 to 4 hours and now around 2 and a half to 3 oz per feed. So if that's what she should be eating how much is she supposed to have?? Don't really understand the maths of it, thankyou sooooo much for replying smile

I think she should be having roughly 28 floz in 24 hours. Is she getting anywhere near that?

Forgot to ask. Did you read the link?

Yes thankyou I did read the link and a lot of the symptoms sound familiar so I will be taking her to G.P on Monday an start the ball rolling.. she is having around 22-25 oz in 24 hours as she still wakes up 1-2 times in night thank god otherwise she would be having around 22 in 24 hours which to me is not enough.. she gained weight at her last weigh in and she is in 50th centinale which hv said was fine but trying to get out of them what is a good amount for a baby of her size and age to have is like trying to bleed blood from a stone.. all they will say is take cue from DD but if I did that she would barely eat anything as she plays with milk.. a lot little minx 😁😁😁 x

Totally agree with you. You can’t take cue from a baby if she has CMPA as she will probably associate the milk with stomach ache and then not want it.

I found the bit in the Allergy UK link useful on how to tslk to the GP and my GP was happy to listen to me when I said I’d got the info from them.

Could you film Dd when she’s screaming and feeding?

I will take that info to the doc on Monday and that's a bloody good idea I will see whether my DH can film x

Sounds like a good plan. I would ask for a referral to a Paeditrician and a Paediatric Dietician too. The allergies section on MN can be helpful and there’s are a few FB frouos for CMPA smile
