  • My son had it up to about his first birthday, it may pass, the meds can help. But, honestly I avoided bottles at about 12-13 months and it started to get better, I don't think even when we were on soy formula it worked, Its hard to dertermine in early stages, but all you can do graudually get of bottles, good luck!!!

  • My daughter had horrible reflux, for the first 2 months all she did was spit up and scream it seemed like. Finally the doc gave us a prescription for zantac (worked miracles for us), she was a completely different baby. They told us that it usually resolves itself between 6-12 months. We slowly started lowering her dose and now she doesn't need it at all. We found that propping her after eating helped a bit and also we strapped her into her swing at night to sleep (hers was so bad that she couldn't sleep laying flat or the acid would start to come up).
