Does anyone else have a child with acid reflux? We are still struggling with my son's.

it might sound funny but for our girl instead of putting her on medication we put baby cereal in with her bottles and her body slowly stopped the puking up.

We use Dr. Brown's bottles. We tried every bottle and these worked the best. We are also using Nuby sippy cups. He is on medication for it. He is also getting four new teeth. We have been taking him to Children's hospital. He had it really bad when he was younger. He wasn't gaining weight. Now he is 19.5 pounds but still spitting up.

I know it sounds crazy but have you ever taken your son to a Chiropractor? Since 3 days old my son (10.5mo old now) has been seen by my chiropractor monthly for preventive homeopathic care. Since a few weeks old he'd spit up/throw up alot and his peditrician told me its "normal" and to not worry bout it unless he looses weight. well he has always been a chunky boy but it still bothered me, so his peditrician said he could give him reflux medicine but I didn't want to do that. I then told my chiropractor about it & after a few adjustments he wasn't spitting/throwing up anymore, would only spit up when "overfilled" & hasn't had any problems for over 5 months now. So I'd say if your peditrician can't get it under control find a Chiropractor that sees babies too. What brand of bottles do you use, if any?
