Is breastfeed the problem?

My LO is 15 weeks old and exclusively breast fed. She has had silent reflux since week 1 and we've currently got her on 2 doses of infant gaviscon a day which keeps the sickness away but constipates her badly. We can get her to poo one firm poo a day on this dose with a little apple juice and boiled water but it's still a fairly uncomfortable experience for her. (We once tried lactulose which had her screaming with wind pain all night.)The doctor recently suggested trying ranitidine but that…See More

"I tried it. Had three sessions at £40 each. It didn't work for us by has for lots of others. It's worth a try. The medication isn't working for us either. My DD is just a mystery and only 6 weeks old! Good luck"

Silent reflux

Hi, I'm new to all this but I'm thinking if will be really nice to talk to other mums going through all this. My son is 12 weeks and has been diagnosed with silent reflux since being rushed into hospital at 5 weeks. He's on Nutramigen for just over a month now, originally to rule out any milk/lactose intolerances but hasn't seemed to have made much difference. He was also on rantedine 3x a day for a month but was still having symptoms, so GP has now prescribed him 1.5ml of omeprazole once a…See More

Weaning help 6 months

Hi all. My LO is 27 weeks we started weaning a few weeks ago with purée veg now trying soft textures like mash potato, bolognase blended, mashed veg. He has been diagnosed with reflux since very young and is on reflux milk and ranitidine. If I try normal milk it just comes back up. He seems keen to have his food but he has a few mouthfuls and it just all comes back up causing him discomfort and then won't eat any more. Has anyone experienced this? I'd be helpful for any adviceThanksSee More

New here, 10 week old with reflux

Hi, very new to this posting business. My baby girl, now 10 weeks was diagnosed with reflux at 3 days old and was put straight on gaviscon and ranitidine. We keep checking her weight and adjusting doses accordingly yet she is still so sore and uncomfortable most of the time. Quite often after she's finished a bottle she'll start screaming in pain yet the Dr's aren't interested in this and just say she's doing well on the medicines. I have no idea if this is normal for a medicated baby to still…See More
