Infant Reflux

After a chat with the pediatrician, it appears Madoc has infant reflux, which is basically really bad heartburn and discomfort after eating. As it turns out, many infants have reflux problems in the first couple months and it usually goes away. So we have our fingers crossed it will pass. Until it does, we have a prescription from the pediatrician and I've been told it would be a good idea to try eliminating dairy from my diet (good times) to see if it makes a difference. I also need to avoid tomatoes, citrus and gas producing foods. Hope that works! I've heard cutting out caffeine could be helpful as well, but I would be unable to function (as I'm still not sleeping much at all).
