Heya, sorry, I have no answer for you...Just wanted to let you know that I'm in the exact same boat as you - my son started crawling at 6.5 months as well, then stood up at 7 months and a week - all of which seems to have made his reflux worse, in fact, the worst it's ever been. Then he got infected with the cold virus, from which he has just started to recover and this is the first time I can see some improvement (he will be 8 months next week). They say that when they start doing a lot of things, it can make reflux worse - well, it was certainly true in our case! Good luck to you both, I really feel for you!

Agree with foxhound. Reflux peaks around 5 months or so. This is when babies are starting to move more on their own (sitting up, crawling etc). This in turn causes stuff to come in. Once his body gets adjusted to all of the moving around it should (anywhere from 9 months to a year). Bonnie should be around here,lol!?!?

wow, I completely screwed up my post didn't I? I meant "stuff will come up more", not "in" (duh). and as he gets adjusted to all of the moving around it should hopefully settle down some. Some babies will also outgrow the reflux around this time since that is when the valve is maturing. Goodness Bonnie, where are you? LOL. I sure can't type...ugh.
