Hi everyone. I'm looking for some help and support. My little girl has just turned one and we are currently trying to find out if recurring vomiting since early January is related to her reflux or not. We were sent to hospital last week, pediatric doctor thought the vomiting was not related to her reflux, however the junior doctor we saw today is trying to say it is. Alot of miscommunication between professionals isnt helping. Anyway, the vomiting is random and has been increasing. Often in the car, sometimes during eating, or just completely random. Today she vomited 3 times. She has lost weight, which worries me so much as she is not very big anyway!

Anyway, sorry about the long post. It's just a very distressing time for us all!

Hi, I’m new to this page but really need some help. Our baby girl, now 4.5 months, was diagnosed with reflux at 8 weeks (finally) since symptoms started at 2 weeks. She also suffers from bad trapped wind/gas pains.

She has been on losec since her diagnosis at 8 weeks & while it has made a massive difference there is still something going on & I really need some help figuring out what to do about it.

Usually only at night, after a feed she will scream her lungs out, arch her back & bring her knees up in discomfort. It can sometimes take an hour or two to settle her after a feed & put her back to bed, only for her to wake again an hour or two later. I try not to feed her again as this can start the cycle all over again but she always wants the boob & when i give it to her she settles a bit but can still display the above mentioned symptoms while on the boob. Sometimes she’ll feed, othertimes she just suckles for comfort - basically uses me as a dummy!! And she won’t take a dummy either.

What is going on with her? Is this bad wind/gas? Why is it such nightmare at night? What can I do to help prevent this from happening?

Please help!!! Can’t keep going on like this night after night. My husband and I aren’t getting any sleep.

Thanks in advance! X
