:wine: glad it went down a bit better tonight. Gracie used to get the aptamil easy digest milk.
I am a mean mummy, I just aim and fire the syringe to the back of gracies throat! :oops:

Thanks for asking :hug:

He still hates it but we are getting there, i do it quick and yesterday we managed a whole day of him not spitting it out!! :wine:

The first night he slept, just waking twice for an oz of milk and a couple of times for his dunny which was amazing!! :mrgreen:

Last night (night 2) he woke a couple more times but still easy to settle and WAY better than he has been doing, i would say at worse he woke up (for milk and dummy) about 8 times...so much much better than he has been doing where its been 25ish wake ups per night!

Im guessing that becuase he has been waking so often before we started the meds that I suspect some of the wakings are habbit...so it will take time to break those...but overall, much much better!! :wine:

Sounds like it is going well. You are probably right, he may need a little while to get used to sleeping better. FC it continues to improve for you.

Ben grew out of his reflux at about 8 months so hopefully Kieran will grow out of it quickly too and you won't need to bother with the meds anymore :D

Bella was also off her meds before she was 12 months old. But beware, crawling can make reflux worse as it puts a lot of pressure on the tummy. We found cruising/walking made everything a whole lot better!
