    Does she have her own routine at the moment? Have you noticed a pattern? Eg. A certain time she falls asleep etc.

    Let her sleep when she can. Do you have a carrier you can carry her in when you are out? does she sleep in the car?

    We are dealing with reflux too, and it sucks!

    I am not sure I can help much.... But my girl has reflux and we've been using 'Infants Friend' and feeding her a thickened formula. If u are breastfeeding, karicare sell a feed thickener that u can add to breastmilk or formula. Since we've started the different formula, she is so much more settled and we very rarely have spews!!
    In regard to routine, I've been following 'the little contented baby' book by Gina ford and it's working well for us.
    Hope you can work it all out!

    Can't help with the routines, but I second the thickened or AR formulas and infants friend. Used together, they were a huge help for us

    I agree with the thickner and positioning is important. I put 2 phone books under the head of the cot to raise it on an angle or let my DD sleep in her bouncer or rocker as she is on an incline. Keeping DD upright for 20 mins after feeds also helped. If the reflux is severe enough then maybe see you GP to consider medication, Losec changed our life!!
    Good luck reflux is horrible

    i don't think you need to worry about trying to produce any routine at this age, especially with a bub with reflux.

    What are you doing to help the reflux? Are you breastfeeding?


    My bub is 12 weeks old now, we started with positioning baby after feeds (holding him upright for as long as possible), working on attachment so he was taking less air in, infant's friend/brauer's colic relief.

    these helped slightly but we were still dealing with the feed vomit scream scream vomit cycle.....

    after seeing the mchn, i tried mylanta to see if this helped, and the relief was huge. it was temporary but defibitely helped soothe him.

    then saw GP again, and bub was put on losec. now trying to get the right dose.

    i can handle the vomit, but the screaming does my head in. hope you get some relief soon

    At that age I'd just strive for a "feed, play, sleep" routine.

    Feed for as long as she wants.
    'play'/awake until she's sleepy
    Feed or rock/settle to sleep.

    At 3 weeks most bubs just want to eat & sleep.

    If you've got to leave the house 3 times a day, personally I'd be feeding before the car trip & hoping for a car nap. Feeding once we get home & Hoping for another nap.
