Q.

Tossing and Turning

my daughter is 16 months old and a healthy girl. She was on losec from the time she was 3 to 10 months for reflux. She is on singular for her chest for 6 months as dr suspects asthma.
The last 2 or 3 nights she has been extremely restless. she cannot lie still for more than 20 seconds with tossing and turning. i eventually gave her some rescue drops.
What could be causing this restlessness ??

It is possible that she has some reflux again and the acid in her stomach is causing her discomfort. Try her on a little Gaviscon infant, adding half a sachet to her bottle of milk especially at night and see if this helps.
