My 11wo, 3 week early, FF DD has been refluxy since about week 2. We messed around with formulas until getting on the Karicare De-Lact and adding thickener a bit less than recommended, and that helped, plus management like not laying her flat, keeping her sitting upright after feed etc so we reduced projectile vomitting from 4 times a day to 1-2 times a day. When we took her in for vaxxs the GP prescribed Losec, and within 3 days we had a day without spews and the evening 'colicy' times had noticeably diminished. Was a few days again before we had another no chucking day, but now, 3 weeks later, we just had 4 consecutive days of no spewing, with an added bonus of her sleeping through for 4 nights. I however am still waking up at 3am and having trouble getting back to sleep
She was sleeping pretty well before, would go down on average at 10pm and up at between 2-4, then again at between 7-9 but now she is going down between 9.30-11pm and staying asleep until about 6-8am. I'm just so pleased and had to share

That's fantastic. I have a 9.5 week old refluxer and it's hard work! Wish he could read this and take notes!
