MY DAUGHTER HAS ACID REFULX, ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT 2 DO?


SHE IS ONLY 7 WKS OLD. HER DR. PRESCRIBED HER SOME MEDS AND HAD ME SWITCH HER MILK TO SIMILAC SENSITIVE 3 WKS AGO AND SHE HAS CONTINUED TO SPIT UP SEVERELY. IF U HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS UR ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED. i have also tried holding her up for 30-45 minutes after feeding and that doesn't work it even happens while she is feeding and up to 1-2 hrs after she has eaten. i have even tried to thicken it with cereal and that doesn't help.

  • my son had this for about the first three months of his life. pretty much they just have to grow out of it is what our ped said. basically the esophagus is too short and doesn't close all the way because the muscle isn't storng enough. the older they get and the longer they get it will help. just keep her upright after and give her the meds and get lots of burp cloths and keep a bib on her. good luck honey.

  • My son to was diagnosed with infantile gerd which is reflux in adults, we found out when he had a episode of tummy acids coming up his throat and he panicd and quit breathing at two weeks...his ped. too gave meds and advised we elevate him to sleep never laeid him flat until he started to crawl.we took the medicines for about a month but my son could not use the bathroom while on them. so we pulled him off the meds and experimented with the formulas and rice and tried to deal without the meds until he grew out of it...so fast forward today 13 months and we have been taking previcid solutabs twice a day since 10 months and three trips to a gasternologist at cooks childrens hosp. and a upper GI TESt.. but now no special diet and we drink whole milk...good luck message if you need some more experience advice
