My son is almost 6 months old and has had GERD since birth. He currently takes 1.5 ml of Ranitidine twice a day. The medicine helps but he still spits up more than normal. We add half the amount of rice cereal as we do formula to each bottle. This helps alot. If we do not add the rice or give him his meds, he will spit up ounces at a time. Im starting to wonder will he ever grow out of this? I know he will eventually but it makes me nervous bc he is almost 6 months old already. Do any of you moms have similar experiences? Also, bc of his reflux, we cannot give him over 4.5 oz at a time or else as soon as he rolls over to play, up it comes. DUe to us having to give him smaller quantites, we have to give hime bottles more often. This has led to him waking evry 3 hours at night bc he wants to eat according to his day time schedule. Just wanted to share my experience and wondering if anyone is in the same boat/ how are you dealing with it? help please!
