My nearly 3 month old DS has been going to daycare since he was 6 weeks. According to his provider most days he cries starting 20 minutes after each bottle (he gets breastmilk) and once able to calm him down is generally fussy most of the day. She is CONVINCED that he has reflux. I'm frustrated because I do not see the same behavior that she does. At home we follow a fairly structured schedule in that I never let him be awake for more than an hour and half before I swaddle him and help him fall asleep. He will usually take anywhere from one hour to two hour naps for me before waking, eating, playing and napping again. Again according to her he will not nap unless he is in a swing or on his belly (and then when he falls asleep she needs to flip him over and he wakes up.) I don't have any experience with reflux but I feel that if that was his problem it would be plaguing him constantly not just on the days he is with her.
I suggested that maybe she keep a log of her daily routine with him to help determine what might be happening which she didn't seem too keen to do. At this point it seems like she feels that he needs some medical intervention and that I'm not willing to consider anything is wrong with him.
One more thing, in the last week he has gone from taking 5 oz every 3 hours while there to 2 1/2 oz every 2. Personally I think the poor thing is over tired and a bit needier than she is used to. She took care of DS1 till he was 15 months old and he was a BREEZE!
Just looking for any thoughts or suggestions I guess as to what you might do to deal with this ... thanks !
ETA: He is almost always exclusively nursed at home - expect for tonight when he took a 4oz bottle and has now been sleeping for 3 hours no problem.
