... DS has reflux and we have a wedge that goes under his crib sheet and matress pad. ... (5 replies)
... e heard some people have inclined their crib mattress by putting something under the mattress, but I guess my concern is that this could create a gap between the crib and mattress and then that would be an entrapement or suffocation hazard. ... (5 replies)
... I don't know how old your DD is so this may not be an option. I haven't inclined DS's crib YET as he's still small enough to sleep in an inclined sleep positioner. Anyway, his ped told me to just put a book or something under the mattress. ... (5 replies)

... My little one is still in his bassinet. I have a fleece pillow, pretty big, on one side of the bassinet. It's tucked into the sides so it gives a bit of an incline. Then I put a fleece blanket over it so it kinda creates the idea of a sheet over it. Then I usually put him in a light sleeper cause alex heats up SO quickly. Then I take a small fleece blanketa dn wrap it... (18 replies)

... k you Marisuela, I put the Vicks in her humidifier tonight. At least that way she will be breathing in the medicine in it. I will have my husband find a way to incline her crib tomorrow. I don't think it is allergies, I think it is just because the weather is changing from low 40's at night to 90's during the day. ... (5 replies)
... pe the excess right onto their pajamas too. Vicks on the bottoms of the feet with nice warm socks on at bedtime works to ease coughing. Put baby to sleep at an incline to help him breathe better. ... (6 replies)
... Thanks everyone for your input, that really helps. Good to know putting something under the mattress isn't a safety issue. Yes, we do keep her elevated for 30 minutes after eating, but unfortunately she is still uncomfortable lying flat. It isn't until maybe an hour and half has gone by that she can lie flat without problems (spitting up, crying, etc.). Oh, and Dizzy... (5 replies)
... I use an actual 3-in-1 positioner that elevates them for reflux, and keeps them from rolling over. It is also Memory foam so that his head won't go flat, or as flat as it may without one. My DD had that so it was a concern this time. ANYWAY...I think you can get them for less than 20 dollars at walmart, Target, Babierus or our favorite auction site! Good luck!;) (5 replies)
... When ds had a cold a few months ago I finally came up with a good idea, maybe it will help. I have a belly wedge for my belly during pregnancy, that I put under his mattress, and it elevates it just enough. Maybe this will help you, how are you guys BTW?:) (5 replies)
He wont nap!!!!!!

... I was also going to suggest trying to put him on his belly, head to the side, and on a bit of an incline (get a rolled towel or a crib wedge and put it UNDER the mattress). Of course, you have to check on him regularly, but being on his belly will keep him from having that 'startle' reflex that lots of babies have when they are trying to fall asleep. My dd naps wonderfully on... (9 replies)
... because she has reflux and needed to sleep on an incline, but now she likes it. You can buy specifically made wedges that are designed to fit under bassinet and crib matresses, but what I did works just as well. ... (4 replies)
... I chose to put my daughter on zantac before giving her cereal at 3 months old because I feel cereal to be nutritionally inferior to both breast milk and formula. It has been proven, many times over, that cereal really does nothing to prevent spit up or help them sleep, so for reflux I felt it would be a pointless endeavor. I think the medication to help alleviate the... (9 replies)
