Our son has reflux too.. Signs that we noticed were constant spit up and vomit, arched his back and screamed when he was being burped, and spitting up over 1 hour after feeding. We hold him upright after every feeding for at least 30 mins and we try not to move him around alot. Gripe water works great for frequent hiccups (another sign of reflux). Before we had my son I was against having an infant on meds but then the doc explained to us how painful reflux is and how it can do permanent damage to his esophogus. Needless to say he is on Prevacid (7.5mg 2 times a day) and bethanechol to keep his stomach contents down.. We also switched to Similac RS because it's thicker (Ready to feed is so much easier). Good luck and I would recommend getting it under control sooner than later!
