Tips / advice for a barium swallow..?

DS is 9 months old and has quite severe reflux and CMPI. His reflux used to be the silent kind, but for the last 2 months he has been vomiting spectacularly quite regularly and at our last gastro appointment, my passing comment about bright green bile finally prompted some action.

Just after some practical advice, any obvious things worth bringing and also what to expect? The letter detailing the appointment didn't really give much away...

It like to go prepared and would hate for it to not happen due to a silly oversight of mine!

Thanks for your help!! smile

Take a 20ml syringe in case your LO won't drink the barium!
