Re: Three and a half week old using me as paci

She doesn't have to be vomiting or spitting up a lot to have reflux -- you are right, it could be -- and sounds like -- silent reflux. You do have experience with that. I might put in a call to the doc and see if they would rx you the medicine to try a dose or two before the appointment, to see if it makes a difference -- you already know the signs. Just to soothe their tummy and throat, babies with reflux like to suck and stay on the breast to help themselves feel better. Elimination of dairy and possibly soy may be helpful as well if that doesn't turn out to be the culprit.
