My 41/2 month old has terrible acid reflux. For the longest time we had no idea why she was so fussy. She would scream and kick her little legs, grab your face and pull and twist your skin. She wasn't getting enough sleep and everyone said I just needed to get her on a better schedule. She had been sleeping in our bed. the doctor told us it wasn't safe and we needed to let her "cry it out". She would scream and thrust when I would lay her down. She would often scream for a solid hour. The doctor assured me this was normal. It didn't take long before she lost her voice. I could tell she wasn't feeling well so I took her to the er. They told me she has terrible acid reflux. Since then She is on prevacid. It has not helped her. I hold her up after she eats for half an hour. I am religious about burping her and she is only breast fed. I am careful not to eat spicy food and even tried going dairy and soy free. I know my baby needs to get in her own bed and get on a schedule. I just don't know what to do!
BTW if you are wondering why she can sleep in our bed and not in her crib, I hold her up all night.
