Hmm will definitely try the bottles

I used them as well and my daughter never had any kind of reflux. A lot of times babies are just learning to eat and they will suck food down too fast. My daughter was breast fed for 10 months and bottle breast milk fed the last 2 months but she also took bottles at daycare.

I second the Dr Brown bottles. I didn't use them much but they helped us with that too.

Dr brown bottles! They cured my son! I saw immediate improvement in his drink. I would pump milk & feed using these bottles. (tried tommy tippe also but no improvement). My poor boy could not finished his meals bc would swallow air = painful. He was hungry but anxious to eat bc of pain. I would cry with him not knowing how to solve. I tried holding him up while feeding, started, Zantac for acid reflux, nothing worked until I bought these bottles

I do have one soda a day. I need to cut that out though. I've been doin the bicycle exercise with his legs though. Thanks- I definitely need luck lol

My first thought is regarding your diet. Are you eating broccoli or drinking carbonated beverages? Things that don't cause you so much gas anymore will still cause your baby gas. Otherwise, try gentle leg exercises for your baby with his feet up in the air.

Good luck!

You'll need to Brest feed often, pump often, eat milk producing foods, keep hydrated and take mothers milk tea. Milk is a supply and demand. The more your baby demands the milk the more your body will produce. Have you been breast feeding, how often, is someone telling you to stop because you're not making enough?
