Reflux ish related...dr wwyd
Ok so I went to the dr today about Oliver's reflux. Also hoping to get a couple of bits on prescription.
He is currently on Ranitidine, Gaviscon and since being on lactose free milk he is more settled and not constipated.
Dr gave me a script for the reflux drugs, but was unwilling regarding the lactose free milk. Not because of cost but because he cant see how LF would help a baby with constipation and reflux. He said a lactose intolerant baby would have diarrhoea rather than being constipated, and I shouldn't be using it without having evidence that O is lactose intolerant from medical testing.
i asked him why it was then that as soon as we changed to lf milk he started going three times a day as opposed to once every 4-5 days and he said it baffled him. He said that he wants me to go back to comfort milk as there is no reason to be on lf.
WWYD. Do I just carry on regardless with the LF milk as he is settled, or go with the dr's advice, and when it goes *** up return to him. I better make the appointment now otherwise O will be 15 before we can get an appointment!!!
