I would like to share the experience which I had a couple of months ago with my daughter Eleni who had silent reflux. During the first four months of Eleni's life I used the baby calm website as well as other websites to gain information about reflux and to read other mom's stories. I always felt so much better knowing that there were other mothers going through the same thing as me. I hope that my story will provide some guidance to moms out there for babies with reflux.
Eleni was born on the 12/09/2013 at 2.4kgs, she had a low birth weight but came home with us from the hospital. At around 3 weeks old she had an ear infection and was admitted to hospital. At the time we did not know that it was reflux which had caused her ear infection. When we came back from the hospital we were certain that she would start feeling better once she had finished the course of antibiotics. However, this was not the case as she would scream, arch her back, and was unable to sleep lying down. Our first paediatrician thought that it was colic and we were prescribed colic remedies. The colic remedies never helped and one Friday afternoon I decided to research Eleni's symptoms and discovered that she was showing all symptoms of silent reflux especially as she never vomited. I felt such a relief having figured out what was wrong with her and was filled with the hope that there was a miracle drug which would make her feel better.
