Reflux

My five almost six week old son has reflux, he likes to sleep on his belly.  I know you are not supposed to put them on their belly but it's the only way he can rest comfortably......does anyone else do this??

That's how my dd was until we had to give her medicine for reflux. We would put her on her stomach for naps as long as we were away. The medicine allowed for her to finally sleep normal until she learned to roll over now she likes to sleep on her side

Our FS has meds he has to take. If I put him on his stomach he vomits. The ONLY way he will sleep is if his bed is elevated :(

Max likes belly and sometimes elevated works.  We just started meds though so it isn't kicked in yet.

Well I hope it helps. If my FS were my biological child and I had a say, I would skip the meds and go the homeopathic route first.

Mine slept on their belly or side because it was before back sleeping. I had one reflux baby and never would I have put her on her back ever. She was the one born when sleeping on their side was recommended.

What do the homeopathy people say to do?

No, you put him on the side so he will not throw up.  I would talk to the doctor and see if a change in diet can help with curing his refux.  When I became pregnant I had Gerd and the doctor stated to change my diet and I did and it worked.

 That is not safe. Formula or breastfed?
