CHESTER

Hi. My son is 23 weeks old and suffers from severe reflux. I feel like i've been banging my head against a brick wall trying to get professionals to believe he has a problem.  Because he's gaining loads of weight they think he's ok. Never mind the 6-8oz's of sick a day!! It's such a lonely place to be and not alot of support out there.  We need to help others as much as possible xxSee More

Periodic Breathing or Apnea

My 7 week old has been prescribed thickened feed and ranitidine for reflux.  At night he seems to constantly stop and restart breathing, and each time it startles him.  What's the difference between periodic breathing which is normal, and apnea?  Is it related to the reflux? What can be done about it?  This is all new to me.  Am waking up everytime it happens at the moment and not getting much sleep as am concerned about him.See More

Kitty replied to Ann Drewitt's discussion Is ranitidine or omeprazole better for sleep?
"Reflux definitely can interrupt their sleep! My LO would even cry out in pain in his sleep :-(. I don't think omeprozole will interrupt sleep but sounds like your LO isn't on a high enough dose or that the reflux isn'tunder control. I…"
