My son was diagnosed with Acid Reflux at 4 weeks old but he couldn't keep anything down and he couldn't poop so I kep taking him to the doctor and even the emergency room and they just said the same thing but when he went for his 2 month check-up the doctor told me he was failing to thrive and they sent him for round 2 of testing to finally get the diagnosis of pyloric stenosis which is a blockage from the stomach to the intestine. He was vomiting after every feeding. So if any of these are the symptoms then keep going back. they need to be about 2 months old before they can feel the olive size lump in the stomach along with the upper GI test to diagnosis. He had surgery and is fine. He is 9 yrs old today. They said it usually happens to first born males. Good luck and just make sure he is keeping food in and gaining weight he will be fine.

My daughter has this terribly and she too was given Axid. Its a liquid and just a few drops made such a HUGE difference in this child! Also, I know someone else said it, but try propping them up a little to sleep. The best way is to add a lift under the mattress so the baby can't suffocate!! Hallie also spent LOTS of nights in her carseat because it was the only way she was comfortable. However, once she started the axid our lives were much easier!

And rest assured that he/she WILL grow out of it. Typically by the time they start eating baby food they are good to go! Good luck, because I know it's trying!

Oh, also, avoid orange juice and anything acidic until you know it's gone!

My youngest Dale had Acid reflux, and projectile reguritation sessions. What went in sometimes came back out and wow it was some times dramatic. Now every baby is different. Rebekah our Oldest was cholicky and was always spitting up, her's was due to changes in my eating as she was nursed and she liked to let her self be known that she had arrived. She was a crier in other words. Dale's problem was different and the Doctor decided that Dale's reaction to formula and nursing wasn't quite like other kids.

The only thing advice to give is keep your sense of humour about being spit up on. Remember to always check the back of your coat and shirt before you go out and if your in a hurry it is ok to Febreeze your self if you get spit up on in an inconvient time. This won't last for long and trust me it will be a distant memory for them and something to remind them of when you meet their first true love.... lol!

Take care

My son never had that problem, but my best friends little boy did, and he is now 9-10 months old and he doesnt throw up anymore. But she had put him on a type of powdered formula that helped, and also had to put a little bit of cerial in his bottle. It never hurt him, if anything it stopped him from throwing up so much, and made him gain some more weight. cause he had been under weight from all the puking. I hope this helps. Goodluck & Congrats on your little one :) hes adorible.

My son had acid reflux as well. I was breastfeeding him and they first suggested I avoid dairy, but that didn't make a difference. I did notice that it was worse when I ate certain foods like cabbage and sausage. The doctor gave him a medicine called Axid (there is also a generic of something similar, I can't remember the name). That helped a lot. He also had prescription gas drops which worked so much better than the over the counter medicine. My son just turn a year this month and he has finally outgrown the acid reflux and no longer needs medicine. It is frustrating until you find something that works. Keep working with your doctor. At first I didn't like the idea of putting him on a daily medicine at such a young age, but it made him much happier and much more comfortable. If you are breastfeeding watch your diet and see if you can identify foods that make it worse. Don't stress. He will more than likely grow out of it.

My daughter was diagnosed with acid reflex when she was 8 weeks old. However the Zantac and rice cereal haven't seemed to help at all. Went back to the doctor this morning and she increased her Zantac dosage and wants to get x-rays of her upper GI to see if she is digesting okay. Good luck!

My daughter had acid reflux really bad, her doctor gave her some medicine to take everyday and I had to add rice to her formula to make it thicker. She was better and less fussy within 2 days! Hope your little one improves!

My son had it when he was born and we just kept changing his formula but that didn't help so we took him to his doctor and they prescribed him some medicine and eventually it stopped

My now 3yr old had it really bad, i suggest if you formula feed an havent already get a formula for reflux, it's thicker so harder for bub 2 throw it up, keep him up right for bout half hour after a feed, we put a pillow under her cot mattress so she was up right a little but not 2 much.

Hope this help's :)

My son had it until he was 7 months old. He was on medicine for it that I'd give him daily. Other than the medicine that is all we would do for the acid reflux. He also had severe colic and milk lactose so he was on a special formula and had the colic until 6 months...LONGEST 6 months of my life! :) He outgrew it once he started eatting more solid foods. I'm sure yours will outgrow it in due time.
