Baby Reflux

Can anyone help me?

I'm looking for a 30% incline baby wedge (my baby is 5 weeks old suffering badly with reflux) i can only seem to find them in America and such places, i don't really want to buy one from America!

There's nothing in the UK i'm sure, (apart from babyreflux.co.uk) is this because they are not advised or safe?

I wouls appreciate ANY information regarding these wedges.

Many thanks :thumbsup: xfingers

i found a u shaped breastfeeding pillow complete with a wedge as well from argos i think. my wedge fitted perfectly under the mattress in the moses crib. both my youngest suffered really badly with reflux. my eldest of the 2 youn gest had to go by ambulance because reflux stopped him breathing. fortunately he recovered.

after that he slept on his side on this wedge, with a blanket rolled up at his back so he couldnt go on his back.

i dont know if that helps at all

Have you tried asking your GP for Domperidone/Ranitidine?

Just want to add do not put stuff like this under mattress not safe .my son has severe reflux and on highest doses of omeprozole donperidon and he still suffers and aspirates too .what specialists advise is to put something under the feet of the bed preferably 45 degree and not the mattress I use books as have not been able to find anything else.if I were u I would certainly ask doctors for medication not controlling bad reflux leads to bad food aversion which we have and it is not something you would want to go through.

My daughter had reflux and we tried domperidone and ranitidine before omeprazole did the trick. The thing that really helped with sleeping was an Amby baby hammock, it was fantastic and helped her sleep so much, couldn't have done without it.

Really hope you get something that works very soon xx

Dusky I wish I had seen this before - I think Elliot might have liked it actually.
