I breastfeed my 2 1/2 week old. She's been on Zantac (ranitidine) for reflux for 5 days with no improvement. What should I change in my diet? New meds for her?

In brief: Several things
The first and most common dietary change that's helped nursing moms with fussy babies in my experience has been to eliminate all dairy.
Others have been helped by eliminating caffeine, garlic, and onions. I've heard eliminating gluten sometimes helps, but haven't personally seen that.
