My son is 18 weeks old and does not sleep through the night! He wakes up every 40 mins to hour and is crying.. I have been sleeping on the floor in his room so that I am close bc he sleeps much better in his crib than his bassinet (believe it or not).. He sleeps well when elevated, like in his car seat, but not when on a flat surface.. I tried to get a witch or one of those things that elevates the baby in the crib but he rolls over the sides and off of it! Otherwise, that would work.. He ends up getting really restless and throwing his arms and legs all over while sleeping and seems extremely uncomfortable as well.. I just feel like he has a lot of the symptoms of a baby with acid reflux but the doctors do not believe me.. I do not want my baby on meds that he doesn't need to be on but if he needs something because he is uncomfortable sleeping I would go for that... He has many more symptoms than I am describing but I could go on all day with them.. So if anyone has a child with acid reflux, I am looking for some kind of a solution.. I don't know if I should demand some kind of testing or what.. I do need to start sleeping at night though.. and my baby does too! He is so tired when he is woken up in the mid of the night with this!
