    Spit Up and Sleeping Positions

    Hi Moms,

    Got a problem that is driving me crazy. My dd is 6 weeks old and spits up A LOT. The problem is that after feeding her, I can't put her down for fear that she will just spit up and possibly choke. During the day I manage to sit her up or hold her for awhile until it seems okay but at night time, it is really hard because I want to get her to go right back to sleep. She spits up anywhere from right after the feed until even 1-2 hours later. My nights are miserable because I end up having to hold her for quite awhile or take her to bed with me so that I can get some sleep, while holding her at an angle in my arms.

    Any advice or suggestions? I am willing to try anything!

    Thanks a lot.

    She probably has reflux like my son. Take hre to see PD if you are worried and not mind using any medicine but for me, I hold him for a while and put him on the nursing pillow for an hour or two. It looks like he leaning against the rubber band ( if you see what I mean). He will carry on doing that until 4, 5,6 or sometime 9 months. My son is slightly better at 4 months. They are fine with it but we have to learn to live with it.
    Now I put my son face down (god forbid...but wait) on that nursing pillow so his face is a little beyond the top of the pillow so he can stil breath. He sleeps like that since 2 monthsduring the day. At night I jsut have to let him spit up as he wish. I notice that when he spit up by himself he tends to turn his head side way. So sometime I put him on his side (right side) so he won't put any pressure on his stomach.

    I also put a pillow under his cot so the head of his bed is slightly higher than the foot of the bed. That way he won't choke so I'm told.

    My son had the same problem, plus he was choking and suffocating at night. I've put the extra pillow too, but also took him to see an osteopath. Reflux can happen because of the conditions of the delivery, some tension appearing at the base of the head, pulling the stomach muscles. After 3 sessions, everything stopped.... I just hoped I did it before !
    Good luck !

    I heard about that too.

    Who did you go to see. I'm interested.

    And how much per session?

    I went at IMI (16 Stanley Street) tel 2523 7121. I saw Dr Chan, a young lady, very sweet. The fees were 600$ per session... it's worth it.
