Hi HLE, sounds like you ate doing a wonderful job with bubs. My ds is a severe refluxer and at 27 months he's no better. We have changed meds a few times to try to get it right. So it really bugs me when 'they' say they'll grow out of it. Can I suggest you try and get into see a paediatric gastroenterologist. It made a difference for us.
All 3 of my kids had reflux and all wanted to be fed to sleep. Even my you vest who is the worst. Do what you want to do now, and worry about down the track later, as it's a long road with a refluxer - and exhausting. Best wishes
