feeding questions for 5.5 mo
Hi there! My name is Lisa, I'm a 3x Neocate/GERD mom (yep, 3x for real) My youngest is starting solids and doing awesome. I remember years ago, our ped GI telling us that some baby foods were more likely to aggravate GERD than others. Can you guys jog my memory and post what foods have aggravated your little one's belly? Thanks so much! Lisa, mom to: Alexa 6.5 yrs, med free since 4yrs, Madelin 4.5yrs, 15mg Prevacid daily but weaning! and Lily, 5 months, 15mg Prevacid & 1ml Pepcid 2x daily & Neocate

Feeding ideas
Dear Lisa, Sounds like you have had quite an adventure...Wow! I would recommend Dr. Sears website at for feeding ideas. Some drs recommend a hypoallergenic type of food: rice cereal, sweet potato. If you are looking for low acid, stay away from peaches and applesauce. With my gerdlings, I found that they were very unimpressed with baby food and we just skipped over to table foods after one year of age. Certainly, the known allergy watch foods are peanut butter, eggs, fish, soy, milk and wheat. Take care, Jan

Hi... I'd agree... quite an adventure! Quinn does horrible on sweet potatoes and carrots. She actually threw them up so much she stopped gaining weight. But, she throws up everything... except bananas. Quinn keeps down bananas! And she is on Nutramigen formula.
Check with your
doctor first!
