    Gosh what a weekend last Tuesday dexter went on Zantac and I came on here asking for help and as always u were there for me thank you. Since then he seemed to be more unsettled and hardly sleeping on the day worse then normal then Saturday night he started crying, he was screaming in pain and nothing would stop him even offering the breast, I was so scared that we got in the car and headed to A+E. Half way there Dex still crying kept suddenly going silent his eyes rolling and shallow breath I had to kinda shake him to being him round I was so scared we went through a red light just had to get there he eventually just crashed out and fell asleep catching his breath and whimpering. Though I had filmed a bit of the cry to show the doc tho my phone went flat and I'm sure the doctor thought he was simply crying over reactive mother grr. It was not the case at all. Saw a peaditrition who said can't find anything physically wrong and sent me home with the same Zantac he was on.
    Since then I decided to stop the Zantac and go back to gaviscon. Has anyone else seen this in their babies? The floppy episodes in the car were so scary. He seemed to be in pain with his tummy tho can't be sure. I'm so worried now everytime he cries I think oh no .

    Does he have acid reflux? I found that the A & E think new parents over react. What is wrong with your LO?

    Have you tried massage? You have to keep it up everyday as it's more effective done on a relaxed child rather than doing it only when they are in pain.
