Where are your babies sleeping? I had Hope in a sleep and play rocker, but changed her to her pack n play last week because she seemed uncomfortable in the rocker. Well the first night in the pack n play was great, but everynight after has been not so good. She just seems so uncomfortable at night the last few weeks. Its either reflux or gas. Last night I was so exhausted I gave up and put her in her swing where she slept for 6 hours straight. Just wondering how you moms let your little one with reflux sleep at night? Also are they flat on their back or elevated?

We're doing the same thing we had to do with DD 6 years ago. Our pedi told us to keep her elevated by using the carseat and we've been doing the same with Eli. I tuck the buckles and straps in so that he can't get caught on them by pulling them taut and putting a folded receiving blanket on them. Then I put the carseat in the crib. He sleeps for 6-8 hrs at night and I don't have to worry about him being in pain from the reflux.

With DD we did this until she learned to roll over at about 5 or 6 months and by then her reflux was pretty much gone. Then we just transitioned her to the elevated mattress and pretty soon after we went flat.

She did. We were worried about that but she did just fine. Hopefully little guy will do the same since we have the routine already established.

Parker sleeps in a rock n play sleeper, but he wakes up frequently so I'm not sure if that's the best option. We tried him in his crib a few times and it worked great once but then went bad. I'm up to try anything if it'll make him sleep for longer than 2 hours!

When Marshall's reflux was real bad and he would fuss alot in the bassinet we would put him in his carseat and he'd sleep really well. Now that it's not as bad he sleeps in his bassinet with the mattress elevated with a folded towel.

Try his carseat. Thats the only way DS1 would sleep good until he got about 3-4months

We did this too with DS1 and he sleep really well! I'd just sit him in his carseat and put it in the crib. This was after he was about 2months old though. When he was smaller I wasn't comfortable with him being in a different room so I'd just sit his carseat in the floor of our room.

We have a reflux wedge in his pack and play. His reflux is worse during the day.
