I think Daegan's reflux is worse than I initially thought...but I'm not sure....he's 15w CA, and 6w AA. He was on pepcid/reglan in NICU for 'suspected reflux' b/c of As and Bs....but fairly soon after that he was septic and the docs weren't sure if it was sepsis As/Bs or from reflux....they took him off reflux meds before sending him home...got home, seems ok...but 'snotty' when laying down...had some bouts with sourmilk smell/spitting up/abd pain...started reglan again and started really watching my diet and keeping him upright after feeds. He's been back on reglan for a few wks now...no dairy in my diet for a little over a week, no spicy foods/tomato sauce (
)....the daytime reflux seems much improved or gone...no sourmilk smell, less spit up (seems to be normal baby amt...few drops) but during the day he's always upright or in a carseat/vibraseat (no vibrations).
at night he sleeps in our bed and sounds 'snotty.' I think I hear the reflux coming up into his nasopharynx...he seems ok and will sleep for ~3-5 hours, but then it wakes him up frequently (and me as well)...past two nights/days I've noticed more choking/gagging...he'll act hungry (but still be snotty sounding) and when feeding, will choke/gag...it's not every feeding, but definitely more when it seems somethings wrong. What I do when he sounds bad is I move to the glider and keep him upright (head up on my shoulder) and he's go right to sleep....like he was tired but couldn't sleep. I feel bad for him. And I need more sleep! We can take short bed naps, like ~1-2 h during the day but that's not enough uninterrupted sleep!
I have a mini co-sleeper that I've elevated the head....but he won't sleep in it...I don't really know how to transition him to it either...DH won't let me elevate our bed...what about the wedges? Do they work? Does it sound like this is the next step I should try? Should I head back to the ped??
Sorry it's so disjointed...I'm tired!
