Any baby may have acid reflux, regardless of whether breast fed or bottle fed.  With acid reflux a baby often has stomach pain; until gas can be passed to relieve the discomfort. It has been shown that lying a baby flat on his back can increase the symptoms of acid reflux, causing more discomfort to baby. All babies should be laid down on their back for sleeping. Therefore, propping up baby's head helps alleviate some of the discomfort form acid reflux.  One way to do this is using a wedge.  

Keeping baby in an upright position for at least 30 minutes after feeding will help prevent symptoms from acid reflux arising. But, babies may need to be in that position longer, and while not upright, the wedge props baby up enough to relieve some of the symptoms caused by acid reflux.  No two babies are alike, and babies have different severities of acid reflux. Whether your baby suffers greatly, or only a little, the baby reflux wedge can work wonders on his comfort level.  

If you don't use a wedge, you will want to prop baby's head up somehow to a 30% degree angle. It's best that baby be propped up every time he is laid down for a nap or for bedtime.  Basically you want baby's head to be higher than baby's stomach. Never compromise your baby's safety when propping up a crib or cradle.  Make sure that it is as safe as possible. While there are a number of ways to keep baby's head above the stomach, the baby reflux wedge is probably the easiest and most cost effective – and the wedge was designed for this very purpose.

You may also consider putting baby to sleep on his side instead of his back. This will work for some babies but not for others. With patience and trial and error you will find the most effective way to relieve your sweet baby's discomfort and allow him, and you, uninterrupted sleep through the night.
