    But here's a few things that the sleep dr said and we do. (And when I say sleep dr. .. i actually mean a medical professional not a 'regular' person! )
    White noise
    Night light
    And wearing a tighter fitting onsie. The pressure and feel of the tight clothing is soothing. She doesn't wear pj's that are sets anymore. So tight leggings with a body suit or similar. That are even a size smaller.
    We find that works. I know your little one is still small but I wish i had realised that sooner.
    Also a little massage before bedtime helps wind down.
    This is great - thanks Tamtam!!

    I also found this thing that we used with DS that you wedge them between to give them that snug feeling which I think has helped her with feeling secure.

    I know this post is a little old but my 4 month old boy is on lisec but i am still having trouble managing his reflux. I have tried thickner in his lactose free formula but it gave him the runs as i found out it has a type of lactose in it. I have also tried infants gaviscon but thst gave him the runs as well. Is there anything else i can try? TIA

    Hi Torn

    My DD (4months) has reflux but I've been able to manage it through medication (losec) and my diet (eliminating dairy & soy) since she was 4 weeks old.

    Are you able to go back to your GP for further help/information? I notice you are using lactose free milk - was that a suggestion by the GP? Did it help at all?

    I noticed a huge difference in DD once I stopped dairy and soy. There may be a further cause to your little ones reflux that needs investigating.

    Best wishes!

    Your baby might be on the wrong dose of losec.

    Yeah - my GP mentioned that this can sometimes happen - that you may need to increase dose until you find that happy place!
