Back to doc this week for shots and I will find out what the plan is going forward, I want to know how long we need to be on this and/or how we know when to stop. I don't like giving him drugs but obviously it's way better than no drugs at this point in time.
    That's great news! Just being able to put my DD down flat was life changing. Our dr recommended that we stay on Losec until 6 months then try a few days without - he said I would know if she still needed it. Luckily DD was fine and has been ever since.

    Best of luck!

    Absolutely this is the biggest thing for me too. I was going crazy holding him upright all the time and could never get a thing done, sleep included! Also just good to see him happy most of the time and not so miserable.

    I am so glad the medication is helping, as the mum of a refluxer I know that relief!

    Something jumped out at me though... Sleeping your baby on their side, please please sleep your baby on their back.

    @sunnygirl and others, did you try the losec tablets dispersed in water rather than compounded? I'm after any tips to get it into my DS. It must taste bad, he looks so offended when I give it to him but seems to help. Also wondering how many people give it twice a day instead of once a day?

    I've tasted it and it's indeed awful. I split dose and gave 1/2 morning and 1/2 at night.
