    According to our paediatrician reflux babies are usually thriving & put on weight as they are frequent feeders, this is why GP's & MCHN's don't pick it up when the should cause bubs appear healthy. The problem is they want to feed frequently to sooth the burning from the avid they are bringing up, but then they bring more acid up after the feed, vicious cycle for the poor bubs!

    Yes and her eyes water when it happens, her little voice sounds hoarse and she clears her throat a lot. She also makes a little hurt sound, she doesn't cry though.

    The vomiting is rather upsetting for her, she throws up constantly in her bassinet and cries until I change her sheets. This happens quite a few times during a 24hr period, it's not a little amount they are a tea cup plate size. I keep her upright for at least 15-30mins each feed.

    Amy I thought about expressing but was unsure if I'd take too much from her feed

    You won't run out of milk, you'll just keep making it as she sucks as opposed to her getting what is stored, it should slow your flow down :-) and if she hasn't got enough off you top her up with the EBM, with a slow flow teat :-)

    Sounds like reflux to me, the raspy sounding throat is a symptom, along with a white tongue, a congested nose, if they seem uncomfortable etc... Along with feeding frequently & the throwing up... Go see a GP or pead and get it sorted, she sounds like she's in pain, the acid can really damage thier little throats if not treated XX

So when we changed it helped but lately she has the bubbles again and small vomits so I dnt know should we get a second opinion do u think
    William is 9 weeks and bubbles at the mouth too. He gets hiccups pretty much every feed but is happy and is putting on weight. Only thing with him is as soon as he wakes in the day from a sleep no matter how long, he thinks he needs some tucker. Quite happy to give him extra in the day if he sleeps better at night. Have you been told the bubbles and hiccups are bad?

    Def sounds like reflux although warning I did read somewhere that Zantac makes them throw up more...I know Orlando was when he first started taking it. We didn't notice a huge difference so will let you know how I go with the losec know
