Hello Everybody !
im new , my name is lynsey and i live on the east coast in england , i have a 2 year old son who was eventually diagnosed with reflux when he was about 3 months old ! i knew from an early age there was something not quite right and wondered what i had done to deserve a baby that was miserable and crying all the time know matter what i did ! but kept being told it was just colic .. untill he stopped putting weight on and bringing back 9 out of 10 feeds , constant wet babygrows and bibs . we tried gavisgon first but that just seemed to just upset his bowel movements and distress him when he tried to poo . we were then put on ranitadine and donperidone and it completely changed him along with keeping him elevated all the time he turned in to a normal happy baby and we got our lives back !!! he grew out of it at around 10 months and is now a very happy and clever 2 year old !! we decided to have a second child who is almost 6 weeks old and when she was around two weeks old she started squirming when she fed and gagging alot and we soon realised she was starting with reflux aswell , i could not belive we had another one with the same thing and what had we done wrong !! we are waiting to see the paed about her and we will not be fobbed off this time . she cries and squirms all the time while feeding and straight after ! she gags and regurgitates alot especially when she tries to sleep ! she seems to be in pain and distress when she needs a poo which is a little strange but my son was the same , its such hard work with a reflux baby when you cant settle them and the crying drives you insane even though the poor baby cant help it , it really gets you down , your tired and unhappy because you cant enjoy a normal happy baby !!
