My 4 month old has reflux, and I need some suggestions to get some sleep at night. I am back at work and sometimes getting up 3 and 4 times a night to sooth his reflux pains. He will wake up screaming, I'll pick him up and he'll burp or spit then go back to sleep most of the time. When I do feed him at night, I hold him for 30 minutes to an hour to keep him upright. Don't know how much longer I can go on with not getting rest.
He's on zantac and prevacid and we're scheduled to see the GI specialist soon. Sleeping on his tummy and the mattress is elevated on one end.
Any other suggestions?
