Question Question for those of you who have babies with acid reflux

Where does your lo sleep? So far we have been using the swing and propping her up, but she constantly slides down. Does anyone have one of the AR wedges? If so, is it worth the money? TIA!

I used to put Jenna in a moses basket with a boppy inside the basket to prop her up. It was a tight squeeze so she never slipped or slid down.

Vibrating bouncy seat or cosleeping here for dd1, the reflux queen (who still has it bad at age 3 ).

I used a bobby-like pillow that Wal-mart carried. It was just like the bobby in shape, but had a crotch harness like that, similar to what you find in a bouncy seat. I had to twist it several times over it's self, then fasten it, but it worked. Kept her propped up and she didn't slip down. I have pics somewhere if you wanna see them.

ETA:
Pic of our set up. I put a not so fluffy standard bed pillow under the head of her mattress, then put this pillow in there and her in it. The crotch strap kept her from sliding. The only thing is that the cover is not removable, you had to wash the whole pillow when she puked, but it held up well.

Re: Question for those of you who have babies with acid reflux

We put our DS in a bouncy. We tried propping one side of his mattress, but he slid too much and wasn't digging it. We recently moved him into his crib, and he was doing fine sleeping flat, but he's back in the bouncy for a while due to a cold and ear infection that seem to be aggravating his reflux.

During the day in her swing or on the crib, she was fine in the crib during the day.

At night, she slept with me on the rocking chair, upright.
