Ellie's One Month Check Up

Our appointment was scheduled for next week on Monday but Ellie had been crying almost nonstop for days.  Tiffany convinced me to go ahead and call the pediatrician's office to see if they had any idea why she was so upset.  I had made a voice recording of Ellie nursing and Tiffany thought that she may have acid reflux.  I am so glad that I listened to my friend and called the doctor instead of waiting.  Sure enough, Ellie has been suffering from acid reflux.  That's why she's been so upset crying and wanting to eat constantly.  They gave us a prescription for Zantac that we give before eating three times a day.  After the first dose, Brandon and I noticed an immediate difference in Ellie!

Being a first time mom (FTM) I feel so lost sometimes, but I am so glad to have great friends.  Thank you, Tiffany!  I don't know what I'd do without you.  Now we can start doing fun stuff with the babies since Miss Ellie is happy again.

Pediatrician Appointment:
Ellie weighs 10 lbs 1 oz
She's grown one inch since birth, measuring 21.5 inches now
Our little girl has grown so much, and the pediatrician said that besides her acid reflux, Ellie seemed perfect.


  1. You're doing a great job!!!! Just trust your gut. Don't beat yourself up about anything. You are the perfect mom for Ellie. I can't stress enough to trust yourself. You will never let your family down! I'm so happy for y'all. It's so hard to believe how things have changed in a year.

  2. Can't believe it's already time for her one month! Seems like time is just flying by! I hope things calm down a bit now that Miss Ellie has medicine, poor thing.

  3. Wish they had baby zantac when I was a baby. So glad Ellie is growing and getting strong.

  4. So glad the Zantac is working! That makes everything so much easier!

  5. So happy to hear that the zantac worked!
