My son wakes up every hour of the night crying,he is 15 months old. He was diagnosed with acid reflux and he had surgery for hydro nephrotic when he was 3 months. Has anybody had a kid with the same surgery, if yes can that be why he doesn't sleep well. He also always has dark bags under his eyes. He's had different pediatrician s, but none take me serious!

 Aww, poor thing.  Neither of you are getting a good night's sleep.  I can't believe a doctor would not take you seriously.  Is he on medicine for acid reflux?  If not, maybe he should be.  What do you do with him when he wakes up?

How does he sleep during the day? Is he catching up on his sleep at all during naps?

I don't know anything about the surgery you mentioned, but I have a LO who suffers (and I mean suffers) from reflux.  I do too.  I have heard (and found to be true) that the stomach contents stay in the stomach better if you lay on the belly or on the right side.  (Because of where everything is.)  If I sleep on my left side, an acidy feeling sore throat wakes me up.

Sorry about your LO! ((((hugs))))

I have a hard time putting him down for naps also. He's fought his sleep since he was born!!
