Both my girls have had reflux. It does get better with time, as their digetive system gets more mature, and you learn what helps for your child - each one is different. If you can lessen the frequency and severity of reflux episodes the more chance you have of getting them to sleep. A dummy helps by stimulating saliva which will help to neutralize the pain from the stomach acid. Also, avoid laying your baby flat - raise the head of the cot, and also the change mat, and prop cushions under them when you put them on the floor. I have also found the old style bouncinettes useful as it keeps the baby's head elevated, but their body straight so there is no pressure on the stomach. With my eldest I needed to put her into this for 15-30 minutes after each feed, as even if I continued to hold her it would put to much pressure on her stomach and she would lose the feed.
