I hope so too. I'm pretty sure it's reflux. It runs in my family and DH's as well.

Yup, time for a new doctor.
Is he by chance an older man??

I've noticed in seeing a few different doctors for different things with my kids, older doctor's tend to have very strong negative feelings about cosleeping and also the to give outdated information about things like when to offer solids, CIO, coarsest safety. Im not saying all older doctors are like that, my son's neurologist is a wonderful doctor with all current information and he's about a thousand years old, but in my experience younger doctors tend to have a more open minded approach when dealing with parents and tend to have better more current information on things like this.

Is the doctor aware of that piece of family history?
