NEW, and need help
Hi, I am new to the reflux world and I am looking for any information and tips. We have recently discovered that my 7 month old has silent reflux. Looking back I am mad at myself for not recognizing it sooner. So a little info, she is breast fed, and on solids. She is still up every 1.5-2 hours at night to nurse. She prefers to sleep in her Mamaroo, and we also have her crib elevated. She used to love being swaddled, but we stopped thinking maybe that was why she was not sleeping well...but now I am wondering if we should go back to it. We tried Ranitidine (15mg/day) and it did not seem to help at all. Now we just started today Lansoprazole 15mg/day. From what I am reading it sounds like this dose is likely not going to be enough? Has anyone used the tabs for their infants? Did they work better than the liquid? What does should I be asking for? Should I be asking for a referral to a GI? I am feeling so lost, I have no idea where to start. My baby was doing great with solids...now all of a sudden she is refusing them. All she will eat is yogurt and cheerios. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
