    Our paed even made a comment that he's never seen a baby with reflux problems who sleeps through the night as surely the symptoms would bother them then too. But he does, and seems he's not alone!

    Sorry you are going through this Simmy especially on your family holiday x

    My bub has silent reflux which is difficult to diagnose and my GP is only now taking me semi seriously. We start losec today.

    My GP didn't believe me that my daughter had silent reflux either because she slept better at night! So no, he is not alone

    Actually I don't think he still does but gave a me script anyway because he said "she is so calm I don't think its right" after she screamed down he waiting room for 40mins while I waited for him & has to settle her, she was still sobbing

    Yep my boy in the last 3 night's has only been waking once for a night feed so I'm not surprised. He is much much happier at night now than in the day. Losec isn't working so he was started on pepti-junior yesterday at the paeds referral. Infant gaviscon causes horrible constipation in most babies but I've found this food thickener is causing any at all its great. Wissa your poor poor baby I know how that feels. Hard to take DS anywhere at the moment. Was told reflux is at its worst between 8 and 16 weeks

    Losec can take a few weeks to work. We saw some improvement, but it was only when we increased the dose that it was a lot better. He's 4 months now & still spews a bit but not acidic & not screaming in pain.
    Now when he screams like that it seems to mean he's either overtired or has wind.

    My DS has been on losec for 8 weeks and its 6mg twice daily as of Monday last week no improvement was told some babies just can't absorb it. But your right it does take 2-3 weeks for losec to start working

    Yesterday DS was much better! Bit grumpy in the morning n then went down for a 3 hour sleep!! Yay! Victory! I think he's been feeling under the weather at the moment, not used to the warner weather. He had 6 hours last night so I'm cheering!
    Partners come down with the flu so I'm doing everything for DS (feeling a bit worn out..) but thanks! Surely it couldn't get worse then the first night lol
