Unhappy baby, exhausted mum

Hi, new to the forum but glad it exists. My LO is 11wks old and has been treated for reflux (2nd GP thinks SR due to symptoms) for past 3 weeks. She's also had colic since she was a week or so old. We started with Gaviscon which has had little or no effect other than worsening her tendency for constipation - she's then been put on 0.66ml ranitidine 3xday and lactulose to deal with the constipation since last week.

HELP! I'm a new mum and SO confused! Is this reflux?

My five-week old son is presenting the following symptoms:A very bloated, rock hard and distended stomach, immediately after every feed and at other times too. He screams, arches, stretches and tries to kick and scratch his tummy. It's worst after the night feeds and he takes forever to settle.During the day he has lots and lots of hiccups, won't lie down flat, possets clear-ish milky liquid with milk curds, snuffles and snorts like a pig and has a 'bubbly' mouth.Is this reflux? Or colic? My GP…See More
