I'm struggling at the moment with my 11week old daughter. She shows signs of having silent reflux and was struggling to put on weight. She has now started to lose weight and GPs are ignoring my concerns.
I want to be referred to a paediatrician however I don't know anything about the costs of going private or the wait of going public. Does anyone have any recommendations of paeds that have been good for reflux?

We went private in brisbane. Got an appt in 2 weeks. I think around $150. GP after that was happy to do repeats for medicine. I wasn't entirely happy with paed though. I think if you find good GP you might be okay.

What are the symptoms? Have you been to the community nurse?

My dd had chronic reflux & was lactose intolerant our Paed was Dr Moore in Brisbane Wesley/Sunnybank - 2 years ago the cost was 150-170 per appointment.. He was fantastic

Sounds like it could be.
Other poster is correct - you don't get any money back from private for appts. But you do get a little from Medicare.
I would ring the paed recommended at sunnybank and ask about their fee structure.
You could try 1-2 ml of liquid mylanta before a feed to see if this helps. This isn't a long term fix and not recommended more than a few times but can help to indicate if it is reflux.
Best of luck - it really is hard.
