Silent Reflux Mommies, I need your help!

Hi everyone. I recently posted a few threads on here about how stressed out I was about some symptoms my almost four month old is experiencing. At first I felt like it was a great sounding board, but after posting what I guess was one to many threads, I was diagnosed by numerous people with having post partum depression :/ This really hurt, because I felt like I was being judged, and I know that my stress and depression is due to my baby seeming like she was in pain. Content baby, content mommy. I don't like the labels Anyway, after taking her to her pediatrician (a new one) this past Thursday for congestion and coughing she has had for over a month, he suspected a cow milk protein allergy, as well as silent reflux. I suspected silent reflux all along, but just wanted a dr to confirm it. He started her on rice cereal and nutramigen formula over the weekend ,but she did horribly. The Nutramigen gave her a horrible horrible diaper rash (she has never had one prior).I was advised to switch her to her original formula, Gerber goodstart:Soothe. After four months of resisting, we finally started her on reflux meds . This was due to her chronic cough and congestion that the Dr. said wasn't a good sign and shouldn't be left untreated or could cause worse problems for her. She is currently on Zantac twice a day, and she just started it tonight. Here are a few questions I have:

1. Did Zantac work for any of your reflux (silent or otherwise) babies??

2. How long did it take to notice a difference??

3. Did they eventually grow out of the reflux??? If so, when???

4. What other things seemed to help your baby???

Any encouraging words or stories would be much appreciated. I pray that the medicine finally helps so that my beautiful baby can finally have some much needed relief!!! Thank you all
