We realised a couple of days ago that my 7 week old son has reflux (i know it sounds terrible, we didn't realise his symptom weren't normal). He saw our gp today and they said to use infant gaviscon. We started him on it tonight, he's been using a size 2 teet but the milk wasn't coming out! we had some size 3 but it seemed to be too fast!
He was SO much more unsettled than usual, he couldn't get calm. After 3 terrible feeds where he thrashed, pulled off and cried non stop i gave up and made him a regular bottle with a size 2 teet and after about 50ml he is sound asleep and calm.
I don't understand how it could have had that effect on him, even when he was pretty happy between feeds he was kicking, twisting and swinging his arms around in a really jerky way (more tan normal).
Does anyone have any idea what's going on? any ideas on what i should do? to be honest he seemed happier with the reflux (even with all the issues, no signs of reflux since the first gaviscon bottle)
