    Default When to start losec

    So I'm preparing for another reflux baby and wondering how early they can start on losec.

    With DD she had silent reflux from the day she was born. As I was a first time mum doctors just kept telling me it's normal for a baby to cry etc. it took until she was almost 3 months and dropped from the 91st percentile to the 6th and a trip to ED for someone to listen to me.

    This time of Bub has it, I won't be ignored but I'm just wondering when an appropriate time to start on losec would be?

    I think my ds was about 5 weeks or so when he started on losec. At that stage weren't 100% sure he had reflux (he had a few other things going on too) but paed and I both thought he might so he went on it as a 'trial' to see if it helped. It did so he ended up staying on it till about 6mths

    Oh I'll definitely know, just not sure at what age it's appropriate to start losec is all.

    I can't believe they didn't take you seriously earlier! Omg how awful. I definitely think things are easier as a 2nd time mum, health professionals don't see you as a novice and you trust yourself so much more.

    I sincerely hope your next Bub doesn't have it. I am pretty sureDS2 had it from birth too it just took a while to realise, I thought he was just fussy/hungry/clingy typical newborn. It wasn't until things intensified that I put 2 & 2 together.

    I really hope Bub doesn't have it but I want to feel prepared if it does. Both me and my sibling had reflux.
