  • Have they looked into pyloric stenosis?

    I agree that breastmilk is probably going to be a better option for him.

  • when your baby starts to sit up all by himself without you helping which should be soon the reflux will taper off until gone
    HANG IN THERE
    small frequent feeds
    sit up right
    burp a lot

  • Yeah I disagree with melrn. My son was like that and he is 12 and still has acid reflux and he's lactose intolerant.
