Looks like DS has reflux :(

I found some info on treating it with homeopathy, craniosacral therapy, and chiropractics, also going to eliminate dairy from my diet,

Just wondering if anyone has other suggestions or experience?

My mom worked for a Chiro who did reflux adjustments on infants and had excellent results - I would definitely try that.  It usually took around 6 treatments if I remember correctly.

I think we'll look into that if the CST doesn't help.

Do you have overactive letdown/oversupply? That's by far the most common cause of "reflux" and managing that will help fix it. Next culprit is usually dairy (and about half who have issues with dairy will also have or develop an issue with soy), eliminating that COMPLETELY (read labels for hidden dairy in processed foods) helps greatly, but it takes up to a month to see full results because that's how long it takes for those proteins to completely clear your bodies!
Most "reflux" could be cured with addressing those two things. For the small percentage who truly have a medical issue after that, medication can certainly help. My middle child had to be medicated, which I HATED, and he was about 2.5 before we could finally get him off of them without him being miserable.

I've heard a chiropractor can really help with true reflux, but I didn't know about thatuntil after I'd been through it and medicated my guy.

Good luck!

Bentonite clay, marshmallow root and a chiro has helped my son.

I don't think so. I re-read about OAL and the symptoms are similar but I don't think it's the cause.

I'm going dairy free starting today - been thinking about it for awhile so I guess this is the catalyst I need to actually do it.

Have you tried the chiro?

I would look into oal/oversupply, block feed, and chiro.
