A little Worried

When I stopped nursing Adley she started spitting up a LOT. I had every intention of nursing her but it just didn't work. We have tried so many different formulas and medicines. Nothing seems to work though. I took her to the Dr. last week telling her I wanted to see a GI Dr. The ped. told me a couple more things to try before getting a referral. She told me to add more rice cereal to her bottles. She is on the spit up formula which has added rice starch in it already. So, I added more to her bottles that day and she STILL spit up. She even spits up her solid food. Now I know every baby spits up, but not like Adley. When I say it's a LOT I MEAN A LOT! Well, that night Casey was dressing Adley for bed and she spit up and she COULD NOT breathe because all the rice cereal was choking her. I was so worried to put her to bed that night...what if she did that in her crib and I couldn't hear her?? I stopped putting rice cereal in her bottle. The ped. also prescribed Adley prevacid which is not really helping either.

Anyway...I just thought by 8 months Aldey would be slowing down a little on the spitting up. What should I do??? Take her to a GI? I don't want to spend tons and tons of $$$ (that we don't have) and just be told she will grow out of it eventually. But if there is ANYTHING we can do to help her with this issue we will do it! I feel like I am the only one dealing with this and it's starting to get very old.

Wishful Thinking...

Not just because of all the cold weather...I wish we were at the beach on a vacation! I also wish I looked like that in the pic...oh well! This was taken almost 5 years ago on our honeymoon. We had so much fun and haven't really been on a vacation since then. Maybe some day!
