Seeking your knowledge ladies...
I want to go next week to my GI very well informed with printouts and everything regarding good scientific evidence for PPI dosing for infants. I would like Atalia to be already on 15 mg prevacid- according to marci kids, this should be fine and dandy, but I know my GI, and she is more conservative. Other than the marci kids website info- any other information out there regarding this topic? If it's a book, that's fine- I can try to buy it, just tell me the pages because I really do not have much time to read. Thanks everyone and please do not forget to pray for us. God Bless.

Mom (Laura) of 2 girls both with reflux: oldest, Larysa, born 11/14/03 has tons of allergy problems and reflux; youngest, Lauren, born 11/10/06 has Colic/Reflux since 2 1/2 weeks. Tried Zantac, Levsin and Mylanta all were no help. Was adding cereal to formula with every feeding. Tried Soy, Nutramigen and LactoFree formulas those were no help either. Currently on 30 mg of Prevacid / day and Carafate (as needed) 2 ml 4x/day. She is on regluar cow's whole milk and table foods. Picture: Taken 8-24-08.
Maybe you should see Dr. Kaiser who is in the same office? I think he is awesome. He placed Lauren on 15 mg of Prevacid at 6 weeks old (unfortunately it took us 6 weeks to get our pedi. to believe that she needed to see Dr. Kaiser). He is a very firm believer on the Prevacid and didn't think twice about increasing her dose to 30 mg way back.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Pray for you every day! You're in my thoughts! I'm pretty confident that with Amalia's experience, you'll have an easier time this go round.
Check with your
doctor first!
