Re: HELP! My newborn has me stressed and stumped!

ITA, it really sounds like reflux. You can find a lot of great info at www.kellymom.com in relation to diet and what in your diet could be causing it. Many spices such as garlic and cinnamon I believe, some veggies, citrus as well as dairy and soy could all cause some reflux among many others. Chocolate and caffeine are both triggers too. My second dd had reflux and silent reflux where they don't actually spit up but they are still having pain from it.

I'd elevate her bed a bit, don't even try to lay her down for at least 30 minutes after a meal and I'd really look into getting a wrap or ring sling. Either will let you hold her hands free and upright. You can PM me for suggestions or more info.

Good luck! It is so hard having an upset baby. {{hugs}}
