4 month old that is suspected to have acid reflux...
My daughter is about 4 1/2 months old. We have done so much and she is still spitting up... The latest thing that we have tried is switching her to soy milk. We are hopefully going to her pediatrician on monday to have her tested. She is constantly puking (we have to wash her bibs everyday and her clothes every other day.) She has the hiccups the majority of the day. Acid reflux has ran in our family. Please help two first time parents get over the struggle of fearing their daughter has acid reflux with no idea on how to deal with it...

Mom to two refluxers. DS 4.5 years, on prevacid since 5 weeks. Trial wean this summer...fail. Intolerant of dairy and soy DD born Nov 2010. Currently on zegerid. Had stomach malrotation & surgery at 9 months. Avoiding dairy/soy with her while BFing.
Is she on any medications? I'd take her to the doctor and let them know how much she is spitting up. Is she in pain, having trouble sleeping? Some spit up is normal for babies. Many refluxers have intolerances to both milk and soy proteins. So you might need to try a hypoallergenic formula.

No she isn't on any medications. We have taken her to the doctors. She stopped sleeping during the day, but after switching her formula she is getting back into her old routine. She was spitting up, projectile, at least once every bottle and in between them at least twice. She would sometimes act as she was in pain after spitting up. Now we are appearing to get it under some sort of control, but its difficult dealing with reflux when you know almost nothing about it...
