Can reflux in babies get worse?

Can reflux in babies get worse?
No. It happens to everyone. Some people have a much harder time adjusting to a change of diet and sleeping arrangement than others. But almost all babies will adapt to a change in their sleeping environment and eventually will seem more comfortable.
Are there any specific foods/tobacco/meds that might affect a baby’s reflux?
There are many foods/tobacco/meds that might affect a baby’s reflux, and it can sometimes seem as though they make it worse. These can be added-on or pre-measured.
What about acid reflux in babies? Does it seem to get better as they get older?
A baby with acid reflux might seem older than it actually is. Baby-swallowing and feeding can occur at any age, but it usually doesn’t get better until they’re about 4 months of age.
What about acid reflux in older babies? Is it always better to keep them on a liquid diet? Or should we at least try to get them on a solid one if we can?
A recent England and Wales (Ebw) study confirmed that there is no significantly greater risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) with reflux medication use in babies under 6 months of age. However, there was an increased risk of SIDS/ABD with use of acid suppression medications, particularly those that are not labeled “supplemental”.
What about acid reflux in babies who are breastfed? Breastfeeding during the day gives milk to your baby more readily than if you didn’t feed her. However, studies show that breastmilk does not seem to be any more effective than if you were breastfed exclusively.

What about acid reflux?
Acid reflux does not equal pain. There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ solution. Different people respond differently to different medications and supplements.
What about gluten intolerance?
Gluten intolerance does not have the same symptoms as acid reflux. People who are sensitive to gluten can still benefit from these foods. Gluten-free diets are also OK if they are for religious or philosophical reasons.
What about acid reflux but doesn’t have any of the symptoms? Doesn’t it hurt?
Yes, it does hurt. It is different for everybody. Some people report a lighter feeling immediately after feedings than after. Some people may notice a gradual worsening of their child’s symptoms over time.
I’ve been nursing your baby for 6 months now and for that I am truly grateful. I’ve learned more about your baby than I ever thought possible in a matter of days. I also learned a lot about nutrition and am much more conscientious than I’ve ever been about feeding and disciplining my baby. I can honestly say that I’ve improved my baby and that matters to me more than money or popularity ever will.

Can reflux in babies get worse?
The answer is NO it doesn’t. There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ formula. Every baby is different and the exact formula you use may have an effect on your baby.
If your baby has any medical issues we recommend contacting your health provider for the best next steps.
I bought the log the other day to make sure my baby is doing all his/her weight well. Turns out the weight gain is actually making it worse…we’re now down to 150g for mo and we can feel it getting worse.
We have a 3 month old and on medication for DADDY’S EGG. MEDICAL EDITORIAL NOTE: DRUG INTERACTIVE MEETING. 3 months and under is now considered a 2 month old. DRUG INTERACTIVE MEETING IS OVER. DRUG INTERACTIVE MEETING RESULTS IN A DIFFERENT REPORT: WE DID NOT GET AN ABSOLUTE YES/NO. HE/SHE IS NOW 2 MONTHS OLD AND WE REALLY DON’t know how to\’t help her. IS THERE ANYTHING WE CAN DO? SHE’s been sick all day, and even when she’s sick she doesn’t settle down. She fights and screams and looks like she’s in pain. She also seems to keep choking (obviously just mildly for a moment as otherwise I’d be back down a different path). I don’t have a good/reliable answer for this except to GIVE HER MORE MEDICINE. DRESS CODE IS: oversized tank top, long sleeve shirt, long sleeve tie.
I am not sure what I can do to have a little more hope.

Can reflux in babies get worse?
No, it doesn’t. There is a muscle at the bottom of the stomach that keeps stomach juice from coming back up. Babies and children with GER can still have difficulty sleeping because their stomach can still be working overtime to keep stomach acid down.
Can I just keep drinking milk?
Probably not. BJs can be quite painful for a baby with GERD, and some parents just can’t handle the thought of their baby crying and/or choking. Some parents just can’t handle the thought of a baby eating or being breastfed.
What about sodium? I hear that sodium helps soothe GERD symptoms, but I have a feeling sth gets wrong. Is that true?
Sodium is weight related and we are having a hard time getting BJs and reflux meds without compromising on diet and nursing. if we can’t get the baby to a safe weight, we’ll be back at it (unless they get better and we– baby first – get a second opinion from an ENT if it’s a diet and nursing issue).
My daughter is nearly six months old and for the last week, she has thrown up 5 times, or maybe the last month like 5-6 months. Every time she projectile vomits, it is curdled milk. She is spitting it all back up, but we can’t get a good look at it because she is so irritable. We are so scared for her and I want to do something…
I am just wondering if you have any information about babies/toddlers coming off of reflux medication and what to expect? My daughter is in constant pain as she grows older and is nursing for 7-10 hours a day. Every feeding is a battle.

Can reflux in babies get worse?
The good news is that almost all babies with reflux outgrow reflux by one year of age. And by that time, most of the problems you describe will have passed. The exception is severe cases of infant GERD, such as those involving the mouth or esophagus. For these babies, surgery is usually not required.
What if surgery isn’t an option?
In most cases, infants do not require any special treatment and usually outgrow reflux by one year of age. However, in rare cases and if medically indicated, surgery can be medically necessary.

What if I miss a feeding?
If you miss a feeding and I’m not completely satisfied with the result, a) I can always try again in a day or two and b) you could try again in 24 hours. I will generally try to eat more frequently than not in a day.
My baby is between 1 and 2 months of age and has been on feeding and hydration shakes since she was about 1 month old. She has also had a) recurrent episode of coughing and b) reflux since she was about 1 month old. She really does have food snacking issues and I’m not sure what else to suggest other than talk to your pediatrician.
I’m not sure what else to suggest other than to your pediatrician. no one seems to be getting the message. it seems like somehow this doesn’t need medical attention and now she’s just a burden on us all.
