Mine was really bad from reflux for a few weeks. She is on Nexium and has stopped the constant grunting. It was awful for a while.

It was particularly bad last night I took a video but it wasn't my upload

I poked her up for some wind at 5 thinking it might help but she didn't get any wind up wouldn't go back down so we got up 5.30. Considering I was in bed by 8.30.....think I've had 3 hours tops!

I can't figure out what it is as she seems to be doing it in her sleep most of the night but seems to be worse between 4-6 in morn. OH was home this morning & has realised just how loud it is not sure what to do / try or just ride it out

Hi, just wondered if anybody has had any improvement? My LO has terrible grunting, whimpering etc usually from about 2am. He's 6 weeks now and I don't think he's ever slept more than about 2 hours in his cot on any night. I always end up co sleeping on the sofa cuddling him from about 4am just to get at least an hours sleep! He's on infant gaviscon and just changed to Dr Browns bottles. Keep thinking he'll grow out of it but just need sone support to know I'm not the only one who's struggling right now. I'm currently sat watching crap music videos waiting the minimum 30 mins after feeding before trying to put him down. It feels like a very long 30 minutes at 2am.

Not noticed a dramatic improvement as yet HV doesn't seem concerned & says it will pass.....in time!

I had my 6 week check up on Monday and asked the GP for ranitidine, but she said no because he's gaining weight ok. HV supported my opinion that it is reflux but it's the GP's who has the final decision I guess. Last night was horrendous, I was up until 2, DH took over 2 to 5 then I was up at 5. He's not crying, he's clearly uncomfortable and has these grunting, writhing spells every few minutes. He's not getting quality rest either poor thing. He's been ok this morning but this afternoon he's grunting and uncomfortable again. No temperature, been for a big poo this morning so not constipated. It's just awful and I can't sit listening to it for much longer it's breaking me, I can't stand to see him struggle and wriggle in pain. I've also been told it's just a phase and he'll grow out of it but that's just not ok!

I could have written all of this. I was also refused ranitidine and told I could only have it after a paediatric referral and that he wasn't bad enough for it. I was furious at the time but actually another 2 weeks and my boy improved a fair bit. He's on gaviscon which helps and also sleeps on his side and is much more comfortable. But I know side sleeping isn't recommended and comes with risks but he is much more settled like that.

Really hope your lo settles soon x

Yes definitely the Nexium, the Xantac did nothing. She is still pulling off the breast so her doctor upped the dose today, hopefully it continues to help. She started having problems around 2 weeks, got on Nexium around 5 weeks, started seeing improvement in about 4 days. She's 9 weeks now and has been much better for about 3 or 4 weeks.
