    Default Help ! 6 week old son has sore croaky throat, could this be silent reflux?

    Hi everyone, my DS is 6 weeks old and has been doing well however lately he has been hardly sleeping in the day time though nights are pretty good . The last 2-3 days his little throat has been croaky and his cries seem a bit weaker than usual . Some nights though I think he has just exhausted himself from the crying . We were thinking it was colic for a bit , and part of it probably is but now we are thinking he might have a bit of silent reflux . Can anyone help or give some advice on this .

    Thanks

    Keep bub upright after feeds, elevated bed head cot. Also I would speak to a dr because bub might need a thickener or possibly reflux med if it is reflux. My ds had reflux as a bub and it was awful.
