I took my 2 month old to the hospital the other day and he is diagnosed with acid reflex, they prescribed him Zantac syrup twice a day and it is definitely helping but he still seems like he has an upset tummy. I have also tried gripe water any other suggestions?
He hasn't been sleeping to well during the day for his naps. Like 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there.

I would bring him to another qualified Pediatrician & have him reevaluated. You are supposed to follow up ER visits with a Dr. He is way too young to not be sleeping. If you are nursing then adjust your diet. If you are formula feeding then switch to a formula (boil the water first) for reflux. Are you burping the baby enough? Is it trapped air that's forcing out what he is drinking instead?
