    Both of my bubs had silent reflux. DD wasn't even diagnosed or medicated until after 4 months because as you say, it's not talked about, commonly misdiagnosed and many medical 'experts' aren't trained in it. Have you been going to a GP or paed?

    I highly recommend a paed. Contact RISA - reflux infants support association and see if they can recommend a good paed in your area who understand that silent reflux is a 'thing'.

    I know you can hear horror stories, but some are very real even though they're very uncommon. What dose of reflux meds is he on? Both of my kids were on 10 mg of nexium 2 times a day.

    What are his poos like? I'm wondering if it's possible that he may have a cows milk protein intolerance. That was the cause of both my kids reflux.

    Big hugs. It's tough going.

    My second had silent reflux. My third had reflux. Honestly it's not that much worse.

    We had a fantastic paed in Melbourne who treated DD2's silent reflux and while the medication was hit and miss I don't recall one being worse than the other.

    The main problem with both is it created enormous sleep issues for both as they were so unsettled by the time they outgrew it the sleep problems were embedded.

    Thanks we are seeing GP but next step is paed if the meds don't work. We were given Somac to start it was really hard to dispense so he isn't getting a proper dose now we have Losec I am yet to try only got it this morning so I will give it some time to work. He did seem to be responding to Somac but perhaps not as quickly as I would like and I can't get a proper dose into him as its not dissolvable and he chokes (and vomits it up).

    His poos are normal yellow/mustard and I have been completely off dairy for over a week (but understand it can take weeks if that was the issue). I regard to any other intolerances we'll do an elimination diet under guidance of it comes to that. But avoiding dairy is easy enough in the meantime, I don't normally have much anyway.

    Trying to remain positive the more people I speak to I realise how common it is and most seem to outgrow it first few months so fingers crossed he is one of those cases. The sleep is our main issue - and yes worried about setting up bad sleep habits now but we can only do what we can do right now it's survival mode. Just want to start enjoying my baby.

    @sunnygirl79, my nephew had silent reflux as a baby too. My sister was giving losec as ordered plus infacol prior to each feed. She also ended up expressing all day and giving his last feed of the night in a bottle with some thickener in it as the thicker feed at night meant it was harder to come up at night and he slept much better. It may be something to keep in mind too. He was still vomiting a bit with all of this, but at least he was a happy chucker, and he slept a lot better!

    In tears. just read an article that said something about babies in a Ugandan orphanage are silent. when asked why they are silent, the orphanage staff said they cry for about a week then just give up once they realise nobody is coming for them. so heartbreaking πŸ˜₯

    Late thirties is anything over 39. Or perhaps 39 and 6months.

    This is how I think of it:

    35 mid thirties

    36 late mid thirties

    37 early mid mid thirties

    38 mid mid thirties

    39 late mid mid thirties

    Haha! I'm not in the 30s club yet, but I think 30-33 is early 30s, 34-36 is mid and 37-39 is late.
