I just praise him each and every time he remotely tries to swallow and just be sure to sqeeze it gently in the corner of his cheek.
I'm sure your wedge is safe esp. if it's under the sheet... I just *really* have reflux issues with my kids and they won't lay flat or even angled very well... it makes it difficult too b/c of their gastro. stuff and their non-burping.
Jen, two of them have spit up and one was a silent refluxer. They all gain very well so I've had a difficult time getting them diagnosed, but I think after pushing more and more with baby #1 paid off and now I have the backing to show. Still, no one believes me for a while, but this last time we had a test to prove it. Gray spits up SO much less with one dose of Zantac... I'm hoping I can put it down to 1/2 soon... but if I don't give him any he pukes ALL stinking day long and a lot - makes me C.R.A.Z.Y. and I can tell it bothers him.
Too bad anyone deals with reflux, it stinks.
At one point we had a Rx. for healing his esophegous and man that helped... but now we're just stalled here... but maybe better soon??
