I woke up this morning to the sound of my 7wk old gasping and spluttering. She was asleep next to me on the bed, and I'm not sure if she was flat on her back or on her side. (She spends the first part of the night in a bassinet in my room, then the rest of the night either next to me or up on my chest.) I picked her up, popped her over my shoulder, then fed her and she was fine.
I know she must have reflux, because she spits up a lot and just has that real gurgly sound, and hates going flat on her back. I'd just assumed it was mild, and was combined with a milder form of colic than we dealt with both brothers, and I'd been managing it fairly well. Now I'm wondering if actually I should be doing something differently.
Should I a) be concerned enough to take her to the doctor b) be concerned enough that I should look into getting some sort of wedge thing for in her bed?
I'm not too worried about her, just worried that maybe I should be more worried than I am, if that makes any sense!
