    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 great post

    I increased her feed of a night last night and she only woke 3 times so not to bad I guess however I feel like if its dark she won't sleep so we have the tv on should i stop this now ???
    Hope every one is well bar no sleep cos I feel you all
    It's great she's in your room! It's recommended for SIDS to keep them in your room until at least 6 months preferably 12

    Sorry for all the posting ladies just had some time to have a quick look on your posts and was easier commenting one at a time!

    AFM Orlando has had a pretty routinely day - sleeping for 2 hours waking for an hour-hour and a bit- sleeping for 2 hours etc! I was able to catch up on probably 4 hours sleep all up today which I'm sure will help me tonight! He went down at 8.20 and is stirring already but honestly I think that's just him he's a very noisy little munchkin! I think he has bad dreams sometimes too...do they dream at this age? I suppose they must!

    God willing tonight will be pretty routinely too we'll see how we go! Definitely the hardest part getting through the nights! Ah well in roughly ten hours daylight will be back and all will be good again haha!!!

    Question re bleeding...how much bleeding do you / did you have after bubs and how long did it last?? Particularly those of you who have had c sections?

    Hi SL,
    I bleed for 5 1/2 weeks. First 2-3 weeks were very heavy then just a little. I had a c-section. 11 weeks ago now. I have also had my first period. Shocking! Could not leave the house. I am going to by Dr next week to get things checked out. The nurses told me when I was in hospital that everyone is different. Some bleed a lot and some bleed a little.

    I could not for the life of me figure this out either until a LC showed me...line bubs nose up with your nipple, not their chin or lips. It looks like a long way from their mouth but it really works. Rub the nose on your nipple, bub will open wide.

    Ivy bathed (a bit late, but nonetheless it's done) now feeding then intent to wrap and soooo hope she will sleep for a couple if hours

    I do the nipple on the nose thing, works pretty well but I find she attaches way better to the left boob than the right...

    We have a left boob preference too. I'd love to ditch the right, it's always lumpy.
