Sleeping and GERD
I currently co sleep with my son due to the fact he wont sleep in his bed do you think GERD could have been the cause? and if so why doesn't affect him sleeping in our bed?

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
Is his head elevated while in your bed and not in his?

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
Yep, it could be an elevated thing. Jedd slept on my chest for his first few weeks, only way he was comfy. We ended up with a feeding tube, so, we had to sleep train him in the bassinet, we had NO choice in the matter. The tubing wouldn't let him in bed with us. :-(

Mom to Jasmine aka: Jazz 01/24/2007
Dx with silent reflux at 8 months
FPIES, DGE, MSPI. Recently diagnosed with EC (Eosin. colitis and now Primary immune deficiency disease.
Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
Jazz slept with me for months and months. She wasn't elevated either but she was comforted with us. In her crib she would not sleep AT ALL. I think it's a comfort thing.

Nate, my 8 month old slept on my chest for 3 months, now he's beside me and I'm hoping once the meds work, he'll be in his crib. HTH

Check with your
doctor first!
