Post subject: Refusing to feed after winding
What a relief to know that other people are going through the same. Our 4 month old son has acid reflux and has been on a mixture of gaviscon, ranitidine and omeprazole and are now trying lactose free milk. He too feeds well to start with (although a few weeks ago refused to feed altogether), and then after being winded screams, arches his back, kicks etc when we offer the bottle back to him. It is such a battle- can anyone help?

Had same problem with my baby, gradually started eating less and losing weight. At about 2 oz he would refuse as if teat was hurting his mouth. His skin also became patchy. Health visitor mention something called "hot teat" which makes baby fell as if the milk is burning the mouth, which is due to milk allergy, I spoke to doctor who wasn't sure about this and gave baby gavison. I wasn't happy about giving gavison to a baby (due to sodium) and didnt think he had the syptoms of acid reflux. On advice of my HV I changed to soya milk and demanded allergy tests from my gp. The first time he had the soya milk he drank 6oz without stopping which was brilliant because normal formula he refused at 2oz. Now feeding very well and seeing a dietician next week after tests showed cows milk allergy.
