Does anyone know the symptoms for acid reflux for infant? I'm not sure if my 7 week has it or not. She just seems to spit up a great deal while burping and even a few hours later. She sees the doctor in a few weeks. I did just add rice to her formula. She also seems constantly hungry, currently at 5 oz. which she was at before, but because of the amount of spit up backed it back to 4.5.

Constant spit-up after feedings [yucky], and those crazy hic-ups ! hope everthing goes well with baby .

My daughter was spitting up all the time also and almost gasping then spitting up. I asked if it was reflux and the Dr. said yes it was. We elevated her while she sleeps and this seems to work for her. He said that we could put her on zanex, but she seems to be doing ok so we won't (yet). If you feel it's an issue, then fight it out with your dr. remember Mom's know best!!!

Oh yes, my son who is 8 wks. old now was diagonsed with Acid reflux...when he was 4 wks. old, he CONSTANTLY had hiccup's, burping along with ProJectile vomiting ALL THE TIME...for the first 4 wks. he was being nursed so I thought that may be it was my breast milk bothering him, so I started putting him on formula and it only got worse from there..I had to try 4 different formula's until I got it right ( at 8 wks. old I think I may have to change it again) URGG! Anyway, Ethan was put on Zantac twice a day and it worked great, his dose has to be changed every time he gain's enough weight, he started out on 9.0ml and now he is on 1.2ml 2 time's a day...if for any reason his symtom's get worse then I would have to take him to a gastro. doc for more testing...hopefully it doesn't come to that! I alway's have to feed my son alot to because he vomit's so much..every so often even with him being on the Zantac he still has those day's where I get some more vomiting then other day's...But the side effect's I think your little one has the sysmtom's are acid reflux...I would deff. put your foot down to the dr. because they drug there feet when it came to my little boy...they said well as long as he was still gaining weight then the vomiting wasn't a problem...Right to them..they don't have to clean it up or deal with it...RIGHT??? So my husband and I had to take him to the dr. twice in one week for them to finally give us Zantac for him ( as soon as I started it that night he was a different baby) and you could Just see that he was alot more comfortable to. When my son eat's now at 8 wks. he is guzzling 6-8 oz. every 2-3 hrs. unless he is snoozing....PLEASE let me know how you made out at the dr. I would like to know what they say....GOOD LUCK!!!!
