Well baby is a day old and already super-yuker. My last LO had reflux badly....I had to nurse her 10 min of every 30 to keep enough down her. She spent a year on meds, I made diet adjustments, elevated beds, wore her upright...nothing really helped. It made her cranky and killed the sleeping too.<br><br>
This baby is already worse than DD2 was at a few weeks old. I am hoping it self corrects sooner, but I already feel awful for her as she chokes and gags, milk out her nose, all sorts of yucks.<br><br>
Poor LO. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I think the first thing I would do, is to cut out all dairy....including watching for hidden dairy.<br><br>
And give that about 2-3 weeks.<br><br>
My DD2 was horrible from the moment she was born....and they kept telling me it was normal...but the only one of my children who had it was also my c/s baby...and we found out it was the dairy in my diet.<br><br>
I am also having a few issues with this one spitting up...but nothing near as bad as DD2...right now everyone thinks it is just too much good mommy's milk (I can pump 3-4 oz per side, and he is only able to handle about 1-1.5 oz a feeding and maybe getting a bit too much per feeding).

Amaia has horrible reflux. Pediatrician wanted me to put her on zantac- but I have been pumping and mixing some infant probiotics into the milk and giving her an ounce a day. After about five days I saw dramatic improvement.<br><br><a href="http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=FL-7044&sourceType=cs&source=FG&cm_mmc=Shopping%20Engines-_-googleproduct-_-U.C.%20Infant%27S%20Probiotic%20-%202.64%20Ounces%20Powder%20-%20Acidophilus%20/%20Probiotics-_-FL-7044&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=FL-7044" target="_blank">This is what I bought</a>

Dairy proteins in my milk have caused all of my kiddos to be big barfers...till I cut all (including hidden, and baked food stuffs) item with dairy out. DS3 was also sensitive to peanut proteins in my milk. I also agree with the benefit mentioned by the pp of colonizing the gut with healthy flora. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I actually preemptively cut dairy when she came, just in case. I'm not sure how long it take to get out of my system, but I have yet to consume dairy since she came. With my last DD I cut out nearly everything and could not trace it back to a single food that made a bit of difference. (Great for me, but no solution for her.)<br><br>
Probiotics are a good idea too. I may try that, as well and some other diet mods and a little time. Trying not to hit the panic button at 48 hrs. :)

Ugh I am so sorry. DD had TERRIBLE reflux; the screams of a GERD baby are so horrendous.<br><br>
We've been lucky with Wyatt so far but if he "gets it" I will be taking him to a chiropractor as I've read so much recently about how helpful that is for baby reflux.

It takes 2-3 weeks for the dairy to completely leave your system. Again, you also need to read labels and look for hidden dairies like casin and whey...and other things that you wouldn't think of as dairy but are dairy proteins.<br><br>
Good luck.
