So I'm pretty sure my LO has some degree of GERD. Hes 4.5 weeks old and has become very fussy all of the sudden. When we first came home he was such a good sleeper and eater. He's still gaining well, but spits up a ton. At first it didn't seem to phase him so I thought it was just spitting up. The past few days hes become increasingly irritable. He coughs and sounds like hes always clearing his throat. He also gets hiccups quite oftens, and spits up while he burps.
Do these symptoms sound like GERD to anyone who has a baby with it. He has a follow up appointment at the NICU tomorrow, as he was 5 weeks early, so I'm hoping to get to the bottom of this. I have had GERD issues since I was a little kid so I feel so bad thinking about him feeling all those symptoms
