Our LO still co-sleeps, which started at about 4 months due to his reflux. The reflux is still there, but resolving, but he seems so uncomfortable many nights. . He rolls around, wakes often crying, sits up and collapses on us, etc...We are not sure why this is. He has finally gone to having only one bottle at night (he has needed the extra bottles due to feeding issues) and we so looked forward to some good nights of sleep. He hates his crib with a passion so we are planning on weaning to a toddler bed when he is ready. he just seems so uncomfortable and it keeps us awake. Any thoughts?
Sarah had horrid reflux in the NICU...she was grunting and miserable. Jonathan had reflux too but not so bad. They were put on...what was it? Prevacid? Zantac? I think J started on Prevacid and S switched from Zantac to Prevacid. When they came home at almost 4 weeks adjusted, I started daily l reuteri - maybe a half tsp each? - and weaned them off the medicine over a few weeks. I don't recall how long we used it but we never had to go back on the anti-reflux meds. It worked miracles. Here is one study on l reuteri:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21114493
