Re: remedy for reflux

My son has severe reflux...I guess personally I wouldn't be trying a home remedy, I'd take them to a doctor and get a prescription medication for them. Reflux can ruin their esophagus and cause a lot of pain for them.

Re: remedy for reflux

I have to agree with the poster above.

My daughter had severe reflux, so I can understand what you're going through. It's a serious condition that should be treated. If you're not wanting to see a Doc, I can understand that. But maybe take them to a Homeopath Doc at least.

Are you nursing? Some simple changes in your diet can help them greatly. If you're bottle feeding with formula, you may need to switch formulas.

I hope you get it figured out soon! Poor little ones.

Change your diet if BFing! My little one couldn't tolerate bananas or peanut butter. What ever you can't live without is probably causes them to have problems.

I agree with the posters above that you should tell your doctor, but here are also things you can do to minimize the reflux (this website is a wealth of breastfeeding info, by the way): http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns/reflux.html#help

Re: remedy for reflux

I have seen the doctor. This has been a thing that has been going on for months I've told the doctor she seen no concern said since they were gaining weight it was ok. I kept complaining and happened to get a diffrent dr. (go to a group) she agreed with me b/c she say him throw it up b/c I had happened to feed him just before I got there. She gave them two diffrent meds. but they are not working. I seen a sling or carrier of some type that is supposed to help reflux just didn't know if anyone had any advice or something that helped them.
thanks

Re: remedy for reflux

Do they scream and arch their backs, does the spit up bother them? If they seem happy, then thye are considered "happy spitters" and the doctors dont treat them if they are gaining. If like my kids, your babies scream constantly, arch their backs and seem unhappy, they need to be treated. My baby had the worst reflux and we started treating him at 2 weeks. I also had to give up dairy and soy (breastfeeding)

Are they just spitting up a lot? Or are they screaming when they eat/lay on their backs, etc? Do they seem like they are in pain?

Because my ped told me that meds won't do a lot for just spitting up, it's the screaming when eating and laying down that worries him.

But if they seem to be in pain when eating and sleeping, I would either get a 2nd, 3rd or even more opinions if you have to. Good luck mama
