    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 for your tips does this go for formula feeds too I had a bit if a better night last night as I have been able to increase her feeds and brown sugar in her bottle helped big time with the consternation which made her happier

    Had an appointment with a LC today, now Ella is over 3kgs I don't have to wake her every 2-3 hours for a feed. I can demand feed now, however during the day I will still feed her every 2-3 hours. I think it helps with the night feeds

    Also apparently sweating is normal I find if I have a long sleep for around 3 hours I will be drenched! All part of your hormones going back to normal and losing all of that excess fluid

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!!!!!!!
    Wow can't believe she slept through the night!!

    We are changing half way through feeding unless he is uncomfortable so that he won't eat. So he wakes goes on one boob til he's had enough then we change him / wake him up a bit then the other boob.

    We are waiting until he's crying though at this stage as he stirs a fair bit. Sometimes he'll stir and then carry on sleeping for another hour

    That's the problem with her in our room.. We hear more so I assume she is awake, bit if left she can keep on sleeping!!

    I'm sooo hanging out for a sleep through., though not complaining about 5 hours! Ds was 6 months old before he slept 4 hours in a row!!
