Help! Baby has reflux

Posted by on Nov. 10, 2013 at 4:39 PM

Hi all!
My son is almost 12 weeks old. We have been having tummy troubles with him pretty much since birth. Either it's horrible gas pains or reflux and we have tried (I think) pretty much everything. He is now on nutramigen, gas drops and Zantac. He seems better, but sometimes he still has these horrible crying spells, arches his back and screams. I feel so bad for him. Anybody else dealing with this? And any suggestions are welcome!
Thank you
Melinda

I don't have any experience with this, but here's a bump!

Do you feed him in an inclined position? Also is he formula fed or breast fed?

He is bottle fed, using a hypoallergenic formula, yes fed on an incline and I usually keep him sitting up 30 min after a bottle- sometimes longer. And he only can sleep on an incline too. Even when I have to change him- and he is having reflux he'll cry when I change him cause he is flat- as soon as I pick him up he is fine.

Poor lil guy. Have you mentioned it to his dr? I'm sorry i don't have much experience with reflux.
By the way a "bump" simply bumps your post to the top so other members will read it. (:

Yeah, we've been to the doctors a lot, and I call a lot too. We are going to see a gi specialist and the first opening for an appointment was December 3. So just counting down the days til our appointment, I can't wait to take him.

Good luck! Hope they figure out what's hurting his little belly.

Are you sure it's tummy pain?
It's a normal developmental milestone for babies crying to increase in the evening. Often babies look like they are in pain and will cry for hours. Some people label it "colic" but it has nothing to do with reflex or digestion issues.

Go to a specialist and get him on Prevacid that was the only thing that worked for my ds and  a probiotic
