cont.^^^ swallowing. Both babies had a prescription(was about $5 with our insurance for generic) Zantac. They took Zantac in a syringe in their mouth twice a day. They gradually overtime weaned down to once a day and then to every other day and then to none at all. It usually gets WAY better for babies once they start solid food and can sit on their own. Ds was off Zantac around 8 months old and dd took just a wee bit over a year to get off of it. They are good as gold now. Only thing is they throw up very easily if they get upset(they can't help it and it doesn't happen often). I would suggest feeding baby an ounce or 2 at a time with the cereal, then burping and so on. Do not lie baby down for at least 30 mins after a feeding. If its really bad they may do a special x-ray where they feed your baby a thick barium where they can pinpoint how delayed the swallowing is and how weak the sphincter muscle is. GL!

Zantac will take a few days to start working but it + the cereal was truly a Godsend!
