My 4.5 mo old dd#2 has reflux following breastfeeding, but it has gotten better w/age. The ped feels like it is because of an immature pyloric valve and she will grow out of it between 6-12 months. She also doesn't feel like it is due to what I am eating because dd#2 does not have any skin problems. Also, my little one no longer loses the milk during the night and she is a frequent night nurser. After nursing during the day, she tries desperately to sit up and look around. So, does this sound like reflux due to food sensitivities or due to positional changes too rapidly? Any advice? She sometimes has excessive gas, but I haven't seen any frothy poop. But maybe some infrequent mucous. She seems to be throwing up more recently; could this be because of teething?<br>

nak - my ds now 1 yr was very similar until about 10 months. He spit up frequently after daytime feedings but had no problems at night. He always spit up again first thing in the morning when he started moving around. Chances are if there aren't any other indications of food sensitivity, it's just run of the mill reflux which she'll eventually out grow. I found homeopathic Carbo Vegetabilis to be helpful.

I think to be sure you could try a total elimination diet for 3 weeks and see if it helps. She might just be at the age that she doesn't want to miss anything by sitting back. Reflux is usually worse at night and I had no idea it could be caused by sitting up quickly? My guy has always been the type that can't sit back and miss anything - he's always gotta be up looking around. He also didn't have skin problems for a long time, until he was on solids. Then he was getting yeast infections constantly.
