    He's only 15 weeks Del. I think I'll take him to the gp to discuss reflux/silent reflux. He does vomit quite often but also coughs/gags/chokes/hiccups/fusses a breast/feeds constantly, wakes often and is a restless sleeper, etc. which all seem to be signs. He used to scream his head off before bed a few weeks ago for about a month but I thought he was overtired or just didn't want to go to sleep but maybe he was uncomfortable.

    Ahhh ok. Then def get him checked out. We had meds prescribed but we found the thing that really helped was solids. Your bubba isn't 4 months yet, but depending on your stance it may be a good option a few weeks down the track.

    Sorry HGL, I clearly didn't read your posts properly.

    If he is actually vomiting then it's not silent reflux but reflux.

    Reflux meds generally cool the oesophagus from the acid, it doesn't actually stop it from coming up. I'd ask your GP as gaviscon is a ***** to make up and doesn't always work.

    I was also advised solids would work too, basically to help keep the stomach contents down in their tummies and the age old - they'll grow out of it (they apparently develop a 'cap' at the top of their oesophagus which stops it coming up - but I was advised this with DD but she didn't grow out of it until 1).

    Also what are his pops like? Are they ever green or foamy or stringy? That can be an intolerance - likely cows milk protein intolerance which can cause reflux and silent reflux.

    Google Reflux Infants Support Association. They have a checklist you can take to your GP that lists all the symptoms of reflux - in Aus, GPs don't really understand it as they should and many babies are going undiagnosed.

    Good luck.
