i too have a tucker sling and wedge
Hi, Everyone, It's been a long time since I have posted. Adelaide, at 10 mos., has grown out of her reflux, believe it or not. I cannot begin to thank you all for the immeasurable support. I don't know how I would have made it through all of the sleepless nights and the constant crying without all of you, even though I was a "lurker" rather than a frequent poster. I pray for those moms who have much more complicated and long-lasting situations with their children. Reflux is the hardest thing I have ever been through in my life, hands down. We don't have a lot of money to donate. If I did, I would give it all to reflux.org. However, I have several items I want to give away if you can just pay postage. Here they are: 1. A Tucker Wedge with two slings, one infant and one the next size up (girl patterns, but when you have a reflux baby, you don't care!) 2. A Belle Baby Carrier. This most wonderful contraption saved my life. Adelaide had to be carried at all times, and this snaps and buckles quickly, unlike a lot of the ones which you have to wrap around. It is the most comfortable, lightweight carrier, and the most convenient, I have ever found, and I tried MANY of them. It is suitable for babies up to 25 lbs. 3. A Moby Baby Wrap, chocolate brown. I just could never figure out all of the wrapping styles, but for those who need to have their babies sleep on them, this might be worth a try. That's it! E-mail me at rebecca.a.schulman@gmail.com, and we will figure the details out.

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.
I would love the moby sling for our next baby. However.. since the baby is not born yet.... if someone else needs it and could use it sooner that would be fine. You are right about the reflux thing! The worst we have gone through too.

Hi I just emailed you about being interested in the tucker wedge with slings and possibly the baby carrier. I hope that they help my lo sleep better. We have so many issues with sleep. We have the crib elevated but he slides down and he ends up sleeping on us most of the time or in our bed because he's up so much. Let me know.

I am a new mother with an infant that began silent refluxing the second day in the hospital. We are constatnly battling this issue and trying to medicate it and allow him to be happy and more at ease. (as well as eases my nerves) It is not a pleasant problem and very scary at times!
Sling still available?
Hi, if you havent gotten rid of the wing yet I would love it! My 2 month old has severe GERD and we have him in his swing now but one of those slings would be great. He would be more comfortable! Between hypoallergenic formula and medications its not cheap!
Check with your
doctor first!
