Madyson is just one month old today and she's been suffering from Acid Reflux... apparently this is why she sounds like she has an awful cold sometimes... she sleeps fine when she's sitting up but if you lay her down she gets very fussy and sounds very congested. She spits up just about every time I burp her, however it's not much, sometimes it's got a lot of mucus in it, sometimes not. We've already changed her formula once from Similac Advance to Gerber Good Start, not helping.. The doctor put her on Zantac two days ago and it's not helping much --- probably because she spits 90% of it back out.. ugh. He wants me to start giving her rice cereal with her bottles... 2 tsp per ounce... I'm afraid that this will constipate her or make matters worse... have any of you used rice cereal to help your babies with acid reflux? If so, how much? Did your baby end up with any problems from this? Any help is appreciated! This is my second baby, but my other daughter didn't have any problems like this (she's 11 years old now!) Thanks!!!
