Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Cautiously optimistic our ride may be over...
It's been a long haul, but I think our battle with reflux may be (for the most part) over. Halley is on day 3 without any meds (she's been on a half Prevacid tab a day for about a month). I'm not seeing any signs at all that she's uncomfortable. I know it may be a bit premature to throw a party, but this is our 4th time to wean and she's always shown signs almost immediately after we have removed even a quarter pill, so I have a very good feeling that she's recovered. Keep your fingers crossed for us...

I am definitely praying that it is really a go this time. I was so happy when we were a go only to be shot down 6 or 7 weeks later. We are back on them now. We do get to start trying some soy foods with him in 2 weeks. Cross your fingers and pray for us too. Thinking of you guys although you left all of us here. LOL Carla
