    Default Anyone stopped losec. How was baby?

    Ds has been on losec from about 12 weeks and its helped a lot. He is now 8m. At about 6m i tried to stop giving it to see if he was over it as he went on solids .. This was a bad idea! We went from nearly sleeping through to up every hour screaming for milk or dummy.so we went back on it and in a week back to himself sleeping well.

    I tried again last week to take him off it this time just dropped his half tablet in the morn but kept night one uo. Bad idea again!! He was up every hour and half. So tiring. So i out him back on morn and night anew he is slowly getting better.

    Paed said to keep weaning and see how he goes every couple of months.. This was when he was 6m.

    I thought reflux should be over by this age? Im worried maybe he is dependant on the medicine if tjats been possible..

    Anyone else tried to wean from it and how did u go? Was bub normal or changed?

    We went on losec at 10 weeks and came off at 6 months with no change at all in DS daily routine. Mind you his sleep was just as bad on or of the medication ... We ended up at sleep school ... Sorry, a bit off topic!

    I'm not sure if they can be dependent on it, but maybe he still needs it. Sometimes reflux lasts longer than 6 months, especially silent reflux.

    Good luck. It's awful.

    Nearly 8 months here and still on it, have tried coming off it a few times but not good!! In fact at the moment I'm starting to think she's outgrowing her dose again as she's starting to get refluxy again even when she's having it....
    So at this point she'll be staying on it a bit longer...last time I spoke to my doc she said maybe we'd try taking her off it at about 9-10 months when she's getting a bit more solids in...so I guess we'll re-assess then.

    Hope your DS has it go away soon - it's horrible!

    Unfortunately, some babies don't grow out of it until2/3 years old, some never grow out of it

    Just continue trying each month and go slow.

    DDis now 9 months and we cut out her morning dose for 2 weeks, then cut every third night time dose and she's been off it completely for 4 days now and so far so good.

    Hi,

    How did you go last night?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you about growing out of reflux, 12 months is most likely about the time they grow out of it. I'd just hate for you to get your hopes up that there is a magic age where it disappears, just keep trying to wean slowly each month and see how you go.

    Good luck!

    Thanks. He is sleeping a bit better now.. Up after about 3 or 4 hours at start of night then every 2. So its such better. He just is so clingy like when i put him down he just screams.. I think now its something else because this is new behaviour.. Usually just goes to sleep straight away

    My baby is 5 months. Our paed suggested to try her off it every 2 months. Last time I tried it was horrible so we wait & try again.
