Poor Brody

Poor baby Brody. He's seemed so miserable lately-really fussy and crying a lot. Today at his two month check up he was diagnosed with colic and reflux. His GI tract and nervous system are underdeveloped (pretty common in premature babies) and he can't digest his formula properly. So he's on yet another new formula (the really expensive hypoallgenic kind-super!) and has a perscription for Zantac that he will take 3 times a day.

He weighs 12 pounds 7 ounces (I Know!!) and is 23 3/4 inches long. He's our little moose. :)

Other than the colic and reflux he's right on track-although on the big side. Unfortunately he also had to get his vaccines today-4 shots and 1 orally- so I think we are in for a rough night!

The doctor thinks that the new formula and the Zantac will really help Brody and that within a few days we should see a big improvement.
