Well Friday night we ended up at out of hous gp at hospital who said they reckon d has silent reflux and prescribed gaviscon. So we started on that one good night, and then Sunday night we had 6 hours of constant screaming or nursing she just went floppy and went to sleep. As still seemed responsive didn't panic. However she looks sound like she was snatching her breath with raspberry and wheezing sounds so we decided to take her to a and e as she just didn't seem wrote.
something I found out which I didn't know is that an infant under 12 weeks when taken to children's ward to see a peadetrition. So this is what happened. She was pretty chilled out all morning and just wanted to sleep- typical she hasn't slept in such chunks since we got her home! Anyway she had some bloods done and was observed for 7 hours they checked my feeding latch. They have confirmesilencer reflux and we have some medicines to try her on. They will take a week to work so still some rough times ahead of us, but we have her sleeping on us more to keep her upright. She had a pretty good night last night and it was really nice to enjoy her being awake and not screaming!

Really hope the meds help, it's awful when they are so upset
Glad they've given you some proper drugs for her. Hope they help. They do take a couple of weeks to make much difference
