I know i must be mad but latly me and DF have been talking about another baby. My first DS was not a refluxer, however my 2nd baby, DD was/ is its only now 22 months on that we are starting to come out the other side and its been a huge amount of stress exsperally in the early weeks/ months. So what are my chances of another silent refluxer?
Hi Danielle - how's Eleri these days? We're contemplating a no 3 but although my consultant says babies "tend towards the mean" and since no 1 was ok likely no 3 will also be, I also haven't come across anyone for whom a subsequent baby has been unaffected. I think you have to assume that they will be a refluxer and if you are lucky and they are not then that's a massive bonus. On that basis, it is making me waver about a 3rd - can I put my family through all that again, even having seen Matthew come out the other side relatively unscathed? Jen x
A wise person said you only regret the children you didn't have. Someone tell me that if I'm ever in the middle of the reflux nightmare again...
