Re: BF baby with reflux

we have been there and it is so hard....we also tried 3 different medicines...but it really just took a bit of growth (and his ability to be more upright) that ended up "curing" it. He does have a milk allergy too though, so perhaps eliminating that would be an option...hugs!

Re: BF baby with reflux

i second an elimination diet. dairy is the most common, start there. my kiddo has a terrible dairy allergy, and had horrible reflux. i cut out all dairy (even the hidden stuff, check labels), and the vomiting stopped completely, even most of the spitting up stopped. it was amazing.

The LO should be having regular checkups and as long as she is gaining weight there is no reason to be concerned. My DD still spits up on a regular basis but she is gaining weight very well so there is no reason to be concerned. She can also talk to the doc about changing her meds. Even on meds though they tend to still spit up.

The medicines help with the pain on reflux. If the baby is a spitter they are still going to be a spitter - just not in pain. That is the idea at least.
