Hey! Just popping in really quick to tell you guys something really neat. Liam has/had reflux. I'd been taking him to a chiropractor for his neck (it was strained during birth.) I mentioned to her that he has a lot of signs of reflux. So she found some accupressure points and used her little instrument there. Now, I don't remember what kind of chiropractor she is, but she uses this nifty little thing that looks kinda like a mini tambourine w/ a handle that she rubs while pressing on places that are out of alignment. It goes on electric fields in teh body. ANyway, she did the reflux adjustment the first time last Monday. He had no sign of reflux at all for at least 3 days straight. Then it slowly got worse again, but hasn't been as bad as before yet. I took him in again this morning and he is asleep in his carseat. He NEVER sleeps away from me. I have to hold him constantly. Anyway, if anyone thinks their baby has reflux, it would definitely be worth looking for a pediatric chiropractor or accupuncturist to look at him/her. It helped SO much! Oh, and IME, chiropractors are very nice people. The one who worked on Liam did the last 2 adjustments for free. We paid the first 2 times, but she did the last 2 free and told me to just stop back in when he starts acting like the reflux is bothering him and she'll adjust him again (and kinda hinted that she'd do it for free again b/c she loves working w/ babies. She seems to mostly get elderly people.) So if you're worried about cost, discuss it wih them. Te normal price is about $30 per appointment, but if they don't take your insurance and you have trouble affording it, they will work w/ you.
