3 1/2 weeks old

The milk man is getting chunky! Guess that is what happens when you practically hang out at the all you can eat milk bar 24-7. I think we are close to figuring out what was making the little man so fussy. I have been on an elimination diet for almost 2 weeks and have noticed a huge improvement in him. He is noticeably less fussy and spits up alot less. I also think he has a touch of reflux. We have elevated the head of his crib mattress and I have started nursing him in a tummy to tummy upright position and those also seem to help- as well as making sure he stays upright for 30 min after a feeding. The question now is if he has some food intolerances to dairy, soy or nuts. We hope to pinpoint any intoleranc's in the next few weeks.... we will keep you posted.

Awww, he's SO cute! Jo had a touch of reflux too and we had to keep her upright for quite awhile after eating. It really helped!
