Any tips for sleepless nights?

Straining a part of reflux?

Was wondering if anyone has advice. My 6wk old DS has had reflux from 2wks old. The doctor prescribed infant gaviscon, which seems to be helping.

He would regularly go for a number 2 & seemed to pass a lot of gas so didn't think it was down to constipation.

Gaviscon or reflux milk

Hi my 7 wee old baby has been on gaviscon for a fortnight now using aptamil comfort milk as the doctor said this was the milk he had been on since 2 days old and had no issues with but my hv said not to use it as it would be too thick. Anyway hes bk to square one not crying but v uncomfy and the sounds he makes are terrible he bubbles at the mouth also. But the last 2 days ive noticed hes really sleepy and taking 4oz is a chore. I dont know wether to try a diff milk to see if it helps! Any…See More
