My oldest and youngest had reflux. Prevacid wasn't available when my oldest had it, it worked so much better than Zantac, which is extremely weight dependent and tastes awful.
Are you BF or FF? It doesn't really make a different which way you feed, but both of my boys were dairy intolerant. As a BF mom I had to take all dairy out of my diet, which was a giant pain. DS1 went onto soy around 6 months because it was just easier (and I had no support from anyone.) The prevacid and no dairy was a life saver for my youngest. Before them his breath smelled like stomach acid.
If you feel that your ped isn't taking you seriously, ask for a referral to a pediatric gastro-enterologist.
