with reflux beause the mother wants him to sleep at least four hours??? At mothering group this morning a gal informed the group that she had to start doing this because it was the only was she could get him to sleep for more than an hour and a half. This is the same woman who insisted she couldn't bf because her milk wouldn't drop, but she was supplimenting at night with formula as she can't focus without appropriate sleep. My heart breaks. She is always super friendly to me, but every conversation we have just leaves me ill-feeling.
Anyway... has anyone done this? Or heard of this? Is it really safe? My dp's mother tells a story of giving her eldest daughter cereal when she was young and overdoing it, more of a "things we do when we are young and first time mothers and don't know any better" story, not a "you should try this".
