    Sl, is the immature muscle that causes the reflux. Eliana has been ob 1ml zantac twice a day since she was 6 weeks old. She had silent reflux, the zantac made her throw up heaps but it didn't hurt her anymore. It now looks like the zantac is losing its effectiveness so might have to change to losec.

    Beta: grab some lecithin capsules from the chemist our health food shop, take 2 twice daily to help with boob lumps, it helps the fat break down, helps me heaps.

    Nic, can't remember if you are bf or ff but grab some inner health plus capsules so you don't get thrush from the anti biotics.

    With the night and day thing, we woke 3 hourly in the day (but had to because she was so little anyway) and let her go at night. I also only put her in her cot at night, during the day put her in her pram, bouncer, swing, floor mat wherever.

    Nicsta I had an infection too and my lo refused my milk as the antibiotics change the flavour of your milk to a yukky taste apparently. Keep an eye on your symptoms because I was mis diagnosed and had some placenta left in my uterus also.

    As for the night feeding are you changing her nappy before or after her feed? During the night change it before so that her warm feed makes her sleepy. Also what helps me is I don't let verity get to the point she is crying for her night feeds just when she is stirring and cooing I would get up and feed her she was on the boob 10 minutes and back to sleep so it was only 10 min I was up as opposed to an hour of feeding and settling an upset baby. Also as she was older and on the bottle I still do this just so she goes back to sleep easily. Vee sleeps in our room in her bassinet and at 12 weeks old she will be going into her room in her cot and I'm dreading losing her lol but it's got to happen. She is getting too big!!! Oh and she slept through the whole night last night!!!!!!!

    That's Awesome queen I'm sure you have many of us jealous right now.

    Well William is 1 month old today and guess who decided to come visit, that's it my nice monthly friend back already doh. Only just finished bleeding from birth

    We are going away for the weekend and have just started our 4 hour drive wonder how many boob stops we will need?

    Glad to hear they picked the infection up early. How's everyone's feeding going? Mine has been heaps better.

    hi all,
    very busy organising a reno, removalists, dying mother in law...blah blah blah and 2 children, but i have been reading the posts...

    SL1009: my DD1 had severe silent acid reflux which essentially burnt her oesphagus and caused severe heart burn. she was diagnosed at 6 weeks as this is when the stomach starts to produce acid. paediatricians are reluctant to diagnose this earlier as stomach immature. however my DD1 didn't settle well from birth and had severe difficulty feeding and we were too inexperienced to know any better. having had DD2 now i know the difference between a normal feeder and one with acid reflux. in short if you had severe heart burn you would take something for it. no amount of cuddles will take away pain so being concerned re taking a medicine so young is scarey but i look at it as hes in pain so treat it to be kind. however your dose of 1 ml for 1 week is odd - ranitidine (zantac) takes 48 hours to start to work on the acid production and you need to continue it long term not just one week. losec takes 7 days to work (different action). Babies do become tolerant of ranitidine and its action will wear off-often at about 2 weeks.
    sorry going on about it but we had a baby with one of the worst cases of reflux the childrens hospital had seen in a long time, and we ended up on nasogastric feeding, losec, maxolon, domperidone, thickener etc etc and made our lives hell for may months. we were in hospital so many time with failure to thrive... so ive done heaps of reading on relfux and been thru the pain of a reflux baby. Adden i think you had a reflux baby too - they are so differnet arent they!

    anyways - if hes got relfux - silent acid type or vomiting type - then i personally would treat it before it gets too bad for his sake. however your doses of drugs are strange...best discuss it at the 6 week check with a specialist paediatrician.

    Nicsta and Mrs simmo - baby awake at night issue....some pointers..
    1. have you got a play mat? - i always feed, change nappy and then put down on play mat for a play no matter how young. even if its for 3 minutes until they get tired - look for those jerky signs SL mentioned a few pages back. it helps them realise that this is day and its time to play!. never put them on the play mat/bouncer at night (not that you'd do that!)
    2. i give 2 sessions of nappy free time in day where she lies on a towel and i air the bum! it prevents nappy rash but also helps them realise its day too for some reason
    3. i don't change her nappy at night unless its pooy and someone mentioned changing at start of feed- i agree - don't change at end or in middle in the night as it wakes them up - cold bum in air = day time.
    4. i always try to keep baby awake from 5-7pm - yes i know a long time but it tires them out and then in that time i bath,play massage, cuddles etc. then give a huge feed and put them down in dark room with no tv on. DD2 is now sleeping at 6 weeks from 730pm to 1 am. then up at 4 amd and 7 am/....
    5. lastly i always wake her in the day every 3 hours for feeds. i try to aim for 7 feeds in the day so im only woken once at night for a feed.

    anyways im really time pushed but wanted to tell you about reflux etc. sorry if it sounds like im preaching - im not- just trying to type and talk ultra fast as my kitchen is in pieces on the floor and i have to get it together before i pick DD1 up from preschool...
    lastly mrs simmo and nicsta - if all those tips dont work - dont worrk they will eventually get it right! BEAR WITH IT - this too will pass..

    Thanks Gampa for the tips...I do try and keep her in dark at night, just feed and back to bed, but she just looked in pain last night and wouldn't settle properly after 4am, ended up bathing her at 7am then she relaxed and settled.

    Ill take on the nappy idea

    I feel like I need to write myself a little routine to get it in my mind what my plan is as I quickly forget what I'm doing.

    Step son is back now so we have to get him to his sport/ work etc, not that difficult really but for done reason everything seems difficult when your tired . Ivy's main sleep time is from 8am till 12 midday daily..,just need to change that to 12-4am
