Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
So we tried Yo Baby yogurt today....
around 8 a.m. and so far so good. I'm waiting for the ball to drop though....the website says it's easy to digest even if babies have a milk protein intolerance. I don't know if Keira really had the "true" MPI but from birth she couldn't tolerate my b/m or regular formula so we'll see.

Kathryn, Pager Volunteer and mommy to Emily Mia 02/04/07. 3 years old with GERD. 30mg Prevacid and Pepcid AC. Mylanta needed for flares. Failed prilosec med switch. Tried and failed many med weans but GERD and pain are well controlled. Functional constipation. Reoccurring SBBO. Suspected IBD or autoimmune disease. Resolved issues: MSPI, CSID (acquired), Stage 2 kidney reflux, Chronic diarrhea.
Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
what kind did you try? emi loved the plain and the banana but couldn't tolerate them b/c of the sugars. watch the fruit and yogurt ones read the labels on them cause there is more stuff in them them the fruit and cereal they advertise.

if yobaby dosen't go well, emi loves plain yogurt with oatmeal and/or berries but you can add in whatever fruit kiera likes to eat. plain yogurt is easier to digest then yobaby, but sour lol. i am sorry to hear about keira's head i hope everything goes well and she dosen't need surgery, you guys are in my prayers! *hugs*

Thanks and congrats to you! :) We tried the plain Yo Baby. So far no problems at all but sometimes she's fine until night time so we'll see. She seemed to really like it though! :) Yeah dh loves organic plain yogurt and he'll put fruit in there himself so once I know she can even handle yogurt then we can go for that. The pedi just said to make sure it's whole milk.

Coyle Eagan. One Year Old. Doing well on Cow's Milk flavored with juice :) Drinking two bottles of Go&Grow daily. Eating solids better but still have rough days. No More Silent Reflux-that I can hear anyway.. but puking again. Zantac 2ML 2X daily.
i'm glad she is tolerating it so far. our reaction started 2 hours after so it sounds like she might be in the clear. just watch her for a few days cuz our allergist said sometime delayed reactions can show up in other ways (acidic butt rash, eczema, etc.).. good luck!

PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I am jealous! Let us know how it goes!

So far so good! Day two... Yesterday she took a 1.5 hour nap in the morning and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon which is very unusual but I'm not complaining. She went to bed last night with no issues. And yesterday I guess it made her poop but it wasn't runny or anything so that's good too. Maybe that's a new idea for when she's constipated. Sorry for the tmi- writing out loud I guess-lol. So we'll see!

I wanted to say that it is possible that Keira slept better b/c of the probiotics in the yogurt. Once we started M on a supplement routine (from our chiro) that was geared towards helping the gut heal he started sleeping through the night. The status of one's stomach or gut is directly related to how well or bad a person sleeps. I hope things are still going well. Libby
