    Well it turnd out my little fella has reflux and could also possibly have the start of colic (fx he hasnt got the colic bit) i just knew he wasnt right at all. Hes been prescribed gaviscon and i have to keep a close eye on him. Hes not taking to well to th gaviscon as he keeps gagging on it and spitting it out. Ive rang doctor and he says to maybe give him half th sachet instead of a full one as it may be too strong for him. So thats my next step.

    I hate seeing him in pain and crying all the time its awful :( xxx

    Poor baby :( Reflux is brutal isnt it . If he does get constipated tummy time , pedaling his legs , baby massage and exercise will really help . Hope he feels better soon xxx

    My lohas reflux,gaviscon made him constipated. You can get domperidoneand ranitidine if gaviscon doesnt work.

    Have you tried excluding dairy?

    Fin has been given gaviscon for reflux but I'm only going to give him a little and not all the time. His poos have lessened and gone from normal bf yellow poppy seeds to a green more solid playdough consistency. Will def try leg spinning and massage xxx

    Hey hun Cam had reflux and colic and it was horrendous. I was going to suggest giving gaviscon with expressed milk but I see you've done that already. Try to keep him as upright as possible whilst feeding him and also for about 20 mins after to help him digest it a bit. Keep an eye on his nappies cos gaviscon made cam pretty constipated :( I hope he improves soon, no doubt you are pretty sleep deprived xx

    Ethan got diagnosed with this last week- gaviscon is a nightmare to get down him but we are just about managing with a syringe and doing it bit by bit and stopping every so often to cuddle/burp him (I am bf therefore he is having it mixed with the 15ml of water as directed). Not sure if you've tried a syringe but it might be worth a go? U can get them from chemist for about a quid! xx
