Also I used a love to dream Swaddle which is amazing and keeps hands up. I didn't have to use the losec for long either which was good. Funny thing was, he would go down at night well and everything I read said reflux babies would be worse at night!! All the best, I know how exhausting it is.
    Could have written that word for word lol

    You need to become a paed lol because all the paeds and doctors here refuse to listen if u ask if it could be a food intolerance

    I'm surprised (though not really) they are as intolerances can only be diagnosed through elimination, so it ensures a follow up appointment!

    I had volunteered ever so briefly with RISA but with DD an other personal and family commitments I had to withdraw, but I hope once this bub comes along and both my kids are older I can join up again to spread the word about silent reflux. Especially to these 'professionals'.

    That is an excellent idea as it seems to be taboo among professionals

    Still trying to get him to sleep at 11:30pm he's been on and off since 12:00pm! It can't be healthy for him wrapping him hasn't worked because the weather is a lot warmer then he's used to so he's too hot. My partner is coming down with something he's got no voice I'm dead on my feet I've been up since 1am not the start to the first family trip I expected and wanted

    You poor thing!! Have you tried co sleeping just until he is completely asleep then moving him. Babies just don't like warm weather. My DS hates anything above 30 which is a pain because we live in mildura and during summer it's regularly above 40.

    My DS has reflux (not the silent kind, he's a chucker) and this sounds exactly like him. He slept really well at night but fought it during the day. One day he was awake from 5am - 10pm!! And was screaming most days.

    Losec has helped so much, huge difference. Please be careful with infant gaviscon. I was advised to give him that too & it was terrible advice as it really bunged him up. It's a feed thickener to stop them throwing up (so if he's not a chucker I can't see what it will do for him), but it also "thickens" their poo.
    Mylanta is the one I've heard to use for diagnostic purposes. It is a cooling antacid. That's NOT how Infant Gaviscon works at all. None of these helped my DS, but the Losec did.

    The GP was very reluctant to diagnose reflux and just told me to wait until our paed appointment at 9 weeks. You might need to see a paed. Good luck!

    Maybe all reflux babies silent or not just have the same temperament lol. Infant gaviscon didn't help us either. I use a feed thickener my DS doesn't chuck but refluxs in his throat and chest numerous times a day then gulps it back down that's what silent reflux is they also get very mucousy throats and makes it hard for them to feed that's where thickened helps silent reflux babies.
