My 4 week old baby has acid relux
and is very fussy throughout the
day/night. I feel like she is always crying. :( While I have gotten her on medication and that has helped some with the really bad screaming/pain episodes, I have the hardest time
getting her to go to sleep at night and
to take naps. The only way she will
sleep at night is on my chest and
during the day it can sometimes take
up to 2 hours to get her to take a nap! There have been days where I just gave up because I was rocking her for hours and she stayed awake for the whole, entire day. :( I try rocking her, singing, playing music, sound machines, sleeping at an incline, the swing, and finally as a last resort I drive her around in the car so that she'll go to sleep during the day. I asked her pediatrician for recommendations to help her sleep and she did not say anything I'm not already doing.. I just feel so bad because she cries and I'm not always sure if she is just overtired or in pain from the reflux or what. We barely got any sleep last night (as I'm trying to get her to stay in her bassinet and in it she wakes up every half hour) and all I wanted this morning was a good nap, instead she is up fussy and crying.. nothing works! I am at my wit's end!!! Help!
We propped ds' up so he was on an incline and then propped him on his side. For us the biggest issue was burping. Even after I would get him to bump there would still be some in there causing his tummy to hurt.
I cosleep though so I always got a good amount of rest but here is a bump. Maybe someone has better answers.
