Hi all -

I just need a place/moment to vent because I'm at my wit's end. My 9 month old spits up like CRAZY and I feel like I'm going crazy. I went through 3 receiving blankets within about 20 minutes because of all his spitting and then yesterday when I fed him bananas (one of the very few solid foods that he seems to tolerate okay) he spit up just about the whole jar. I had given him a new food (apples and blueberries) in the morning and I can't figure out if it's a delayed reaction to the apples and blueberries or if he's all of a sudden not handling the bananas very well. And then today he's just cried and cried and spit up and he hasn't pooed since about Friday. Ugh --- I just want to know how to help my little guy so that he feels well. He's such a happy baby when his tummy isn't upset, but I feel like he has to start eating solids at some point here!!! He's my 4th child, but I feel like I don't have a clue.

Plus, I'm going around in circles between my doctor, the insurance co., and the local lab, with getting what I need to have genetic testing done for me and to have it covered by our provider. This has been going on for 3 weeks and I just want to get the test done already. I need a healthy dose of some patience I think :blink:

Sounds like you need a vacation more than patience! I guess it'd be silly to ask if you can keep him sitting up and not lying down for a few hours after eating? That's my first thought. I've been having a lot of reflux/heartburn lately and had to start eating supper (and less of it!) earlier so I can have a few hours to digest before I lie down to sleep.
