This is the same as my blog, word for word so if you read that then it is the same ol same ol!
Well we went to Shands to see a specialist about their reflux. He asked a TON of questions about family history and such and did a short exam on them (felt their tummy, looked for blood in the stool, eyes, ears, etc). Of course, did not find anything out of the ordinary. So he states, well they have reflux. I felt like saying "DUH, I KNEW THAT" but I restrained myself. So he stated we could change their formula from the Nutramigen to something more broken down that you need to buy at a pharmacy (do not remember the names at the moment). I mean they spit up on the Nutramigen but they are ok. No more stomach aches or anything like that. Plus we started solids so soon they will be eating more solids and less milk. So I do not think we will try a new formula. It would make it even harder to switch to cows milk come a year old.
He said that 85% of kids outgrow it by the time they are one and the other by the time they are two. It is rare if they have it for longer. I will admit it has slowly gotten better so I do not think it will take them longer than two years. But once they are sitting up more and not lying down as much it should get a lot better. So hopefully it is over soon. He did want a check up in 4 months. Mind you we had to drive 2 hours to Gainesville...he states "lets meet in the Tallahassee office." Um excuse me!? I did not have to drive two hours?! He said they do not like meeting new patients in Tally and that they are only there once a month but still. Can they not give an exception for twins?!
In other news...the weights and heights according to Shands scale:
Mackenzie weighed in at a whopping 15lbs 4 oz and 27 1/4 inches tall!
Brooke weighed in at 15 lbs 6 oz and 25 3/4 inches tall!
Mackenzie has really caught up! She is eating more than Brooke now and not spitting up as much as her sister either. It was a nice weeked over all though since I got to see my mom again. She is a big help with washing bottles, laundry, dusting, etc. It reminds me of how much I wish we could afford a maid!
