Thanks everyone for your comments. I tried all the suggestions, but it didn't make any difference. The no dairy actually made it worse, how weird is that? I ran into a friend who told me that her daughter had the same thing, so she gave me a bunch of advice and tips. Mainly you just get used to being wet and doing a ton of laundry. emoticon I'm just glad that she's otherwise healthy and good tempered. It's not forever, so I'm just enjoying every day anyway.

My son had a dairy sensitivity.. and if I had too much dairy he would have reflux. If it comes and goes I wonder if it is something you are eating. It may not be... but I would try keeping a food journal. Or maybe giving up dairy for 2 days and see if it makes a difference. Milk proteins do pass through into the breastmilk.

My DD had a similar problem. I used a product called simethecone. Not sure if its spelled right and don't remember the maker (its been 14 years) but the pharmacist should know. hope it helps.

Yeah, the Dr has already seen her and confirmed. She's had a pacifier since day 1, in fact, she came out sucking on her hand (c-section) and they just handed me the paci and said "Here, you'll need this". She's had no problems latching or eating, just keeping it down. It's usually enough that we both have to change shirts (sometimes pants) and I'm always washing burp cloths...it's crazy, but it's not forever, just want to help her feel better.

Are you sure it's reflux and not merely eating too much? I had a son who just liked to nurse and would often lose most of what he ate. I got him a pacifier and it solved the problem. He wasn't hungry as often as he liked to suckle.

Hey, the baby is actually doing great. She was 10 lbs & 13 1/2 oz. and 23 inches long at her last weigh in (8 weeks), so she's not on any medication for her reflux. We just get to be wet all the time. Does it come and go? She'll start to be better, holding more food down, and I'll think that we are over it and then it starts up again with her throwing up at least 1/2 of what she's eaten. I'm using Gripe Water, which works well, but are there other suggestions? Is there something I can eat to help her? I had some ginger marmalade on toast the other morning and she did much better that day. I'm just hoping there is a better answer than to wait until she's about 6 months and sitting up on her own...
