anyway things to try
my ds slept in his carseat, nap nanny (the best till he grew out of it) then the stroller!
he never slept in his crib till it was a toddler bed!
baby wearing is good as long as he is upright like in a ergo or beco not in a sling
- swing- you have to get the kind that swing side to side not back and front that just makes the acid come up and burns
fisher price cradle/papasan swing - easy to find on craigslist!
good luck!
Yes to all of these ideas . Also, baby may need an elemental formula like Nutramigen AA, Elecare, or Neocate. My 2 older DDs were/are soy and milk protein allergic so they suffered using anything but elemental formula (even though I still nursed and pumped for them along with the formula for a few months each). My oldest also needed meds for reflux.
