wow thanks. My bub has 90% of those symptoms so I am now even more sure he must have it. Thanks for your post :)
I'll add one thing to that great list ... frequent feeding and big weight gains. My paed said that bubs with reflux either gain too much weight or not enough (inc losing weight). My Josh wanted to feed all the time and was stacking on the weight. :)
Hi - my 13 week old DS also has silent reflux which is being managed by Zantac. You may find www.reflux.org.au (http://www.reflux.org.au) quite useful with additional info - I know I did. This is the site for Reflux Infants Support Association.
Thanks. Oscar is on Zantac. Has been for about a month now and he is amazing, Much happier baby!
Great to hear the zantac is working for Oscar!
When DS was smaller basically from birth to about 9 months he exhibited a lot of those symptoms. He was quite an unhappy baby and was very slow to put on weight. I now wonder if he might have had silent reflux...I hadn't actually heard of it until I read this post.
