"I personally would not wait for weaning but thats only my advice - I would far rather wean a baby earlier but go easy with it (use gentle food like root veg purees) then give higher doses of medication and weaning does really help in about 50% of…"
I will see the consultant again and see what they say! She is now almost 131b!
I have not weaned her yet, I am going to wait another few weeks until she is 6 months. Each time I have mentioned it to the Health Visitors, they tell me…"
Wow thats alot of Losec. Mine only on 5ml/mg but then only developed pain later, originally just major sickness & weight loss.
Mine's sleeping too much in day (is this poss?!) at mo but have been missing some dose of…"
Will def ask about calcium supplement.
Have wedge & wrap, yeah great when fitted properly (until he chucked up all over it & so now in wash!)
Don't think mine'll be crawling anytime soon either as hates 'tummy…"
"Hi hun I know you could up the ranitidine 12.5lb is nearly 6 kg so she could have up to 1.2 ml 3 times a day according to my docs dosages
You can use max dose of ranitidine and omp together as they work differently - 0.7 ml once a day is tiny
Glad to hear that your lo is now better, what meds was she on and what was the time given before each bottle?
I look forward to hearing from you as I am going through hell with my 5 month old baby! She is on neocate milk, gaviscon,…"
My son Aaron is 21 weeks, on neocate, gaviscon, carobel, losec mups 25mg/day and 3 x solids/day.
Solids have helped us loads and he loves his food thank goodness. Up until last week he was taking 2ml domperidone 3x/day. His sleep was just…"
"Hi hun - will the best advice I was given was the stop worrying about milk totally - I was given a name of a calcium supplement (floradix make it childrens formula) and she had this and two fromage frais a day and I was told not to worry at all…"
"Thanks Victoria was just thinking you'd have some good advice as you've been there and through it!
Any weaning advice please- foods best avoided, or ones settled well, etc. My Lo's 8mths & started purees at 16wks. I've had…"
"Yes completely better - just FYI weaning really helped - we started at 14 weeks and just before that was our worst time - by 5 months so rarely refluxed but still hardly took any milk and was still in pain
By 6 months she was much better and by 7…"

Thanks anyway all"
"I weaned my baby at 16 weeks on the advice of the paed. I started on baby rice and quickly moved on to fruit and veg purees. He gets really bad wind from fruit (apart from pears - he's now 9 months old) so I tend to stick to that in the morning…"
As your Lo is so young if you can't wait I'd try just babyrice and stick to that for as long as you can.
Her system is immature and also proberly sensitive due to reflux. Early weaning can cause intolerances & probs later…"
