8 1/2 month old son has acid reflux/GERD

My son is 8 1/2 months old and has horrible reflux that is getting worse everyday.

It has been going on since birth. He did horrible on the breast milk. He cried terribly and arched his back plus burping him was very difficult. He spit up constantly. He did better on formula than on breast milk (the crying stopped but the arching and spitting up continued). He still doesn't get any dairy.

Since then, the spitting up has gotton much worse (the back arching has stopped) and now the reflux smells horrible (like sour vomit) and in greater quantities. He has a huge appetite and screams until he eats, then he proceeds to start vomiting/spitting up within moments after feeding or hours after. His vomit ranges from projectile to random spitting up. It doesn't seem to be causing him any pain. His bowels are are solid and well formed.

We have tried all kinds of things and nothing seems to make a difference or even a dent. We elevate him, we keep him upright, we still try and burp him, give him smaller more frequent meals, ect. No food or formula makes any difference. He vomits constantly regardless and it is getting worse everyday.

We're military and the western docs aren't any help. We live in Pensacola, FL and there are no homeopathic doctors anywhere near here that we know of.

If you know of any specific homeopathics that worked please let me know asap. I am a Dr. of Acupuncture and can administer them safely.

what medications mother use/used during pregnancy,labour? ?

what health status of mother during pregnancy,labour?

The only meds the baby has taken was Gripe Water and Mylecon and it has been a long time since that.

I only took prenatals, omegas and bone calcium when I was pregnant. I never took any pain killers after my elective c-section nor did I take anything when I was pregnant.

I was in excellent health during my pregnancy and labor. Both the baby and I elected to leave the next day after the c-section. I worked out the next day as well.

The baby is very happy other than the reflux

what is child's action/response AFTER vomiting/spitting up--?...hungry;crying;content,sleepy;...etc ---please explain
John Stanton last decade
After spitting up his reaction is usually no response. I just look and see that everything is covered in vomit or I smell it first.
However, he DOES fuss (quick crying)from time to time (mabey once a day). It depends on the amount of vomit. The larger the amount the more likely he is to fuss for a few seconds. But he never actually stops what he is doing at the time. It doesn't bother him. He just keeps on till it is nap time again. He is very active. He crawls and can pull himself up on things. He is trying to walk.

His sleeping is excellent. He sleeps from 7 to 6:30 am and then takes three 2 hour naps during the day. His crib sheets/toys are always covered in vomit/spit-up and need to be changed daily. He also likes to play in his crib and always wakes up quietly and just waits for us to come get him. Really, the only time he cries is when he is impatiently waiting to eat, then he wants to scarf down his food and screams at us if we are too slow.

The Dr. doesn't seem concerned and gave us the old he'll grow out of it once he can sit up, but actually it getting worst and worst.

without natural 'stretch' of vaginal birth babies often suffering spinal subluxations as consequence of c-section birthing.....
-so advisable sooner than not for chiropractic adjustment for child...

start treatment single dose "ONLY" saniculla 30c---no repetition until posting back reponse or lack of response of remedy..
John Stanton last decade
correct name of remedy = "sanicula aqua"
John Stanton last decade
Thanks for the advice.
Still haven't found a chiropractor in this area. Am still looking.

I ordered sanicula aqua and I will let you know as soon as I get it and give it to him.

Thanks again so much for trying to help me!
