Let me start by saying I am still new to the forum and not familiar with the acronyms. Is there a list of commonly used acronyms somewhere on this site? Now, on to the issue at hand. My lo (little one?) was diagnosed with acid reflux last week. We do not have a problem with vomiting, just occasional spitting up. She has gained 5 lbs 7 oz since birth, so weight gain is not a problem. We took her in to get checked bc we noticed a rattling, gurgling sound in her chest and throat. She usually swallows her spit-up and then crys. She is what some would consider a fussy baby (more so in the evenings) I think the acid reflux has a lot to do with her crying spells. She also gets the hiccups 3 or 4 times a day and has excessive drool. I feel so bad for her. Last night was really bad, she would nurse, then pull away and cry, nurse, pull away and cry. We finally just stopped and rocked until she feel asleep. Does anyone have any advice on dealing with acid reflux. I have started nursing her with her sitting in an upright position, which is sometimes awkward, and I try to keep her upright for at least 30 min afterwards. At night, however, we nurse with her lying down and usually fall asleep nursing. I rarely even burp her at night. Will this get better? I read somewhere that it will go away by the time they are 1 yr. Surely it gets somewhat better before then. I hate to know she has to suffer with this for a year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
