Hi ladies my son just turned 3 weeks and suddenly became so unsettled due to reflux. Vomiting heaps, red in the face and arcing back after feeds. He now won't settle into the cot at all during the day. Morning nap i usually push him in the stroller then midday I am so tire so I let him nap on my arm so we co sleep.
With my first she had reflux too and I used to hold her upright for naps and slept with her. I don't want to create the same bad habits.
We are keeping the poor little one nexium to lessen the pain and hoping in a week he would be a new baby. .
Any tips or experience would be great. Although we did have a reflux baby before I can't go through holding him for all naps again especially with a toddler to look after.
Have you mentioned it to your doctor? they can give medication if it's really bad and rule out more serious tummy issues. Have you also considered using a sling so he can be upright but you can still get on with other things. Hope he feels better
My son was put on ranitidine at 5 weeks for reflux as he vomited every bottle up and was loosing weight. He slept in his carry cot with a rolled up towel under the head of it at night but slept in a v-pillow during the day. Not ideal but both my babies had reflux and both have been tummy sleepers which helped massively. It's frustrating as anything, and hearing people say it will get better doesn't help. Just try different things and you will find something that works x
my baby had reflux that started at 3 weeks, he did grow out of it but we tried a whole number of things. We persisted with gripe water which did help him burp, we co -slept as he wouldn't settle in the crib, kept him upright after feeds, fed him little and often. It was exhausting. I hope things get better for you soon!
My little one was on Dr browns and he was burped really good after every feeding and still ending up with horrible gas, farting constantly. Once, I started him with babies magic tea, he's comfortable with no gas bubbles.
