A 25-year-old female asked:
could it be possible my 10 month old screams all night with reflux but is completely normal during the day?

Possible: When your child lies flat reflux can irritate the esophagus, some precautions can help, like tilting the head of the bed up 30 degrees, thickening the formula with cereal, and anti reflux meds by pediatrician if the former doesn't work, children usually outgrow the condition after the first year
