any helpful information about severe reflux?

My son is a preemie, and has been battling reflux since he was born. He is now 7 months and has almost completely stopped wanting to eat because of the reflux. The doctor said he might have to have a feeding tube, which i don't really want. That will be my last resort. We have changed his formula so many times, he has been on all kinds of reflux meds. Does anyone have any other suggestions we can try?

Since your son is already under the care of a doctor for this issue, I don't think there is much help to offer. i am sure you follow all of the guidelines about position, volume and frequency of feeding. The only suggestion I have it to go to a pediatric gastroenterologist. You may have to travel to a large teaching hospital, but you want to seek the advice of someone who deals with kids and their digestive systems. Not just a pediatrician, and not a adult GI doc.
