Doesn't seem to be a food sensitivity...

Well Jaxon doesn't seem to be any better on the sensitive formula. Jay thinks he is up more during the night (almost every half hour). We'll keep trying this food for a few days to give it a good try, then call the dietician and G.I. specialist to see what they think.
On a positive note, Jaxon reached his weight gain goal this past week with 1oz/day. He weighed 8lbs, 10oz on Thursday and will be re-weighed on Monday. I think Jason and I are just getting used to the venting process to save Jaxon from losing his food. We can jump up in mid conversation without a blink of an eye these days!
I just pray that Jax really does "just grow out of this" and he (and us) can get some relief.
Other than that, the boys are developing more and more every day right before our eyes. Jax is starting to like to play and both of the boys are developing the cutest GIGGLE. We can't however get them to play on their bellies to work on pushing themselves up - they hate it!

Brady and his handsome self.

Oh steal hearts!
(Notice we've learned how to keep his hand busy to keep it off his g-tube)

Jaxon is quite the flirt these days.

Wow, Jax is getting so big!! They are so cute and I really hope you find something that works for the reflux. Our boys are just now growing out of it at almost 9 months, but it's amazing how little they spit up now...they can be in the same outfit the entire day!!

Your babies are so adorable! I hope that Jaxon outgrows his reflux as well. The daughter of a friend of mine had a g-tube for the same reasons as Jaxon and she was finished with it completely by about 15 months, I believe. The doctors left it in even after she didn't need it, just in case. She had it removed completely before she was two. I'm sure Jaxon will be done with his before you know it!
