If you have had a baby with more severe reflux - what helped?
We are being referred to a GI specialist. The last few weeks have been so bad and sad for him (my 8.5 month old son).
He has been on rinitidine (zantac) and now prevacid for almost 3 weeks, and it has not been any better. We had to bring him in because he is wincing in pain when it's time to eat now. He takes a bottle fine but pushes out purees with his tongue and cries because it hurts. Apparently his throat is very red from reflux and they want us to go to a specialist. He's up multiple times a night, every night, he gurgles the stomach acid, he shrugs his shoulders to try to relieve pain etc.
We have done the previously stated drugs and also gripe water.
I hope the specialist can help. I'm curious if anybody had success with a particular drug combonation, or a switch in formulas etc.
