Check your child's mattress...
After Amalia started sleeping well (done teething)..after 3-4 days things started to go backwards again.. She was waking up in the middle of the night crying for mommy- and just tears and tears if I put her back down on her crib, even after reassuring her I would stay until she fell asleep.....waking up from her afternoon nap crying again. One night I stayed for an hour with her and she just kept turning and making painful faces...until finally I let her go downstairs with daddy and she fell asleep immediately when placed on the sofa. What is going on? I thought. This is new. I started getting really sad- and cried and prayed for wisdom. It just did not seem like reflux- but what else could it be? I was about to call GI for the endoscopy, but kept praying and crying for wisdom in all of this...when last Sunday before I went to bed I had this urge to check her mattress- I pushed down on it- and I could feel all the little springs inside. I'm like- this can not be comfortable- and I jumped inside the crib and laid on it and - Ouch- this is not comfortable! I switched her mattress..and she has slept wonderfully ever since- WOW- PRAISE GOD! "But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all generously and without reproach,and it will be given to him." James 1:5 So I wanted to pass this along, because if it happened to me/Amalia- it could happen to anyone! Blessings!

You still are one of the wisest women I know. I don't know if I would have thought to do what you did. I'm glad God showed you the answer.

I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
you go girl! That was smart think'!

isaacs mummy
Mother of 4 children. 3 girls, youngest baby boy 30/08/08. Dx silent reflux at 3 months. On Gaviscon and just trying zantac and domperidone. Thought Isaac was finished with reflux at 5 months, had a couple of weeks free it then came back with a vengeance...........
Hi there.......... I think this is a brilliant example of how its easy to think the worst, and to put every thing down to GER related. I do this often with my baby. Nice to know Im not alone. Thanks Julie

I love this post, thank you so much for posting it. I do think once you have dealt with a reflux kido and you know how much pain it can cause it is soooo easy to attribute everything after to reflux. So smart to stay calm and pray for wisdom. I am so glad you were shown the real problem and hopefully there will be lots of good sleeping for everyone now! ((HUGS))
Check with your
doctor first!
