vivalachloe: Amby Nature Nest

My daughter has reflux =|, and doesn't do so hot sleeping in her crib. She WILL NOT sleep in it. Ever. I've switched her formula to the Enfamil AR, and that has helped a little. I'd really rather NOT put her on the medication for it at such a young age. I've read some good things about the Amby Nature Nest, and how it helps improve acid reflux and colicy babies, but, I don't know anyone else who's had one, and, it's 200 dollars and non-returnable, and I can't find information about it anywhere, other than limited info on the site. Anyone had any experience with the Amby Nature Nest, or have any other suggestions?

Have you tryed making the matress slope a little? Place like a board or something under one end so the end her head is on is up higher. Thats what the suggest for older people, so I assume that would work with a baby also.

My baby cousin has reflux and he was put on meds at 3 months of age because he was in so much pain. I'll get you the name of the meds later.

Have you tried cosleeping? That may comfort him when he's fussy to know that mommy is right next to him.

Reflux babies really shouldn't be flat on there backs, it makes reflux worse.

another reason I couldn't cosleep...:(

Slope the crib matress!!
We had to do this with my son when he was younger. We used a matress wedge.


It was $30 well spent. It made a huge difference. We put it under his matress and it made it slope just right.

Good luck, I know how tough it is to have a baby with reflux.

My son had reflux and I did go ahead and put him on Zantac. It seemed to make him much more comfortable. This may not be a popular opinion, but I also let him sleep on his stomach. He seemed ok with it and is obviously fine. Sloping the crib mattress is also a good idea.
