Remember to chew your food at least 29-30 times before swallowing! Take your tine eating your food. Limit the amount of liquids you drink during your meal (max 8 oz) ...Read more

My nine week old has reflux and is on prevacid (lansoprazole) but will only stay asleep for at most one hour, she only sleeps deeply when she is on me. Is this safe?  

My nine week old has reflux and is on prevacid (lansoprazole) but will only stay asleep for at most one hour, she only sleeps deeply when she is on me. Is this safe?  

Other suggestions: I would suggest elevating the head of her crib 30 degrees with a foam wedge placed under the mattress. Her room should be quiet and dimly lit with a night light or dark. The AAP guidelines recommend that she sleep on her back. Her crib may be placed near or in your room, to make feedings easier, but bright light and noise should be avoided. ...Read more
