God I hope this paed helps. Third paed, 4th formula....I've had enough. Hope he can deal with emotional women....
OP After reading your posts i had to send a post. My DD never had reflux or anything like that but for the first five weeks of her life she did nothing but scream and it was probably the most traumatic and stressful five weeks of my life so I understand how you must be feeling and how helpless you can feel with your bub in distress and you having done everything to help them with any success.
After listening to my GP and the CHN telling me it was nothing I ended up in emergency with her one night as I couldn't handle her distress anymore. Her paed later told me it was the best thing I could have done for her. I now have the most beautiful happy baby who is such a delight so I think mums definitely knows best and go with your gut instinct and just keep persisting until you get the answers you so desperately need. I really hope the new paed helps you tomorrow.
Best of luck.

I still think its the cow.milk.....its the only thing besides a big.medical issue i.can think of.
You can actually buy pepti junior without a prescription. It is more expensive but it is worth a shot in trying.
Like sunnyflower I would also suggest you look into chiropractic and see if this might be for you and your bub. I have seen great results...
if your in brisbane i have pepti junior.
Trying soy. Will update more in depth soon xo

Have you tried infant gaviscon after the feed as per instructions on the box? This is how I diagnosed reflux in DS as he improved dramatically from the first few feeds. It's a pain to administer but if it helps is worth the hassle until you get some Losec.
If you end up using Losec just some advice to watch where you get it made up. I got mine made up at a different pharmacy to usual and it was inactive, within 2 days DS was back to crying during feeds and screaming. I went and got some from the original pharmacy and he was back to normal 2 days later thank god. Apparently it is very touchy to make correctly.
