Sorry Steph, I missed this yesterday. Glad you were able to get stuff for her at A&E and I really hope they work well for her.

Eve has reflux, and takes ranitidine. DH is a paediatrician and we were able to get it sorted really early thankfully. It's made a world of difference with her, she was like a completely different baby after taking it for a few days.
Hope it's the same with Grace :hug:

So glad you went to A&E and got something sorted Steph. I really hope it makes a massive difference to Grace and to you.

Sounds like A&E was the right thing to do but isn't it a shame that you have to go to hospital to be taken seriously and seen too :-? In the case of a baby in pain you should be able to see a paed much sooner just from your GP IMO, especially when the GP isn't allowed to prescribe anything to help.

Glad to hear that the A&E trip was so useful. FC that the meds start to help Grace quickly and she's pain-free soon. Poor baby. :hug:

But :giggle: at the white FB.

I'm so pleased your trip was worthwhile, but as Jules said, it's wrong that you should have to do that rather than have a quick referral from your GP.

I posted in Jules reflux thread (I think) about how debilitating and depressing I found the whole experience when Connor had it. Not only does the sickness and crying and lack of sleep get you down, but then when you venture out you feel embarrassed and a failure, even though it's something you have no control over. But hopefully all that will soon be a thing of the past for Grace and you :D

Btw, I had to give Connor's gaviscon before feeds not after. I found it really tricky, not the faff of preparing it, but I had to give it four times a day so wanted to give it to keep down decent sized feeds. It was so disappointing to give it then he'd come off the boob after about 1 minute, then typically within an hour he'd have a really good feed which he'd then bring back up :roll:
