Quoting .Colleen.:" SIDS risks don't disappear b/c the baby has reflux. It's always best to lay them flat"

If her pediatrician instructed her to put the baby to sleep elevated it is because the benefits outweigh the risks.

My DD had reflux bad. She never could sleep in the bed. She slept in her swing till she was 6 months. I was too scared to lay her in the bed with anything.

Hi, sorry to hear your son has reflux. My son suffered until he was three months old. I always worried about him being able to roll and get stuck if I put a pillow on top or under the mattress so I elavated one end of the crib instead, I used books and raised it about 5 inches, just another idea to try if your worried about putting a pillow in the crib
