My twins are now 9 months old and have had serious spitting up issues since they were born...but neither one of them has tested positive for reflux. So a while back I started thinking and had a moment of clarity. I was on meds during my pregnancy several times due to early labor and an early dilating cervix. Both twins were put on meds immediately after birth in the NICU b/c of their prematurity. So, I wondered if all their good bacteria had been destroyed. Several weeks ago I started them on probiotics. In the past couple of days I have noticed a HUGE improvement in my ds, but not so much with my dd. She is still spitting up/throwing up quite a bit, and now something new has been added into the mix. She is pooping all the freaking time. Yesterday morning she woke up covered in poop and then proceeded to poop 4 more times yesterday. This is not diarrhea, just a lot of poop. This morning she was covered in poop yet again. Nothing has changed in her diet to where she would be pooping any more than usual. So...is this normal with probiotics? Does the "cleaning out" of her tummy make her poop more? Also, I know that I've read in several places that the puking can get worse before it gets better...which it definitely has...but what kind of timetable are we looking at here?
Thanks so much for any answers/advice! Oh...sorry if TMI! :LOL
