Nolan's nine month check
Nolan is 25.02lbs and 31 and 1/2 inches tall. He is off the charts in height and weight. Like 110% in height and 105 in weight so actually he is big but he is proportional. His head is in the 75%. I always think kids' heads are so big but I guess Nolan's is actually smaller in comparison to his h&w.

We are to continue the prevacid as we have been. She said to leave it alone for awhile since we tried to cut back and it didn't work. She said with teeth and new foods just to not change anything. I am fine with that just sad that we are still going through this.

He might have allergies to the outside so she said to do Benedryl as needed and keep using the pink eye drops if it helps.

His toenail is still ingrown and we just have to continue to watch it.

His tongue tie we have to watch how he's talking in the next few months. No shots so that is wonderful. My doc is having a baby in Aug so she won't be back to work in time for his 12 mon check so we have to see someone else:P I'm selfish but I want her to be there:( I just hope her fill in is just as understanding and cooperative as this doc.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Gotta love being off the charts!! I am glad he is such a healthy boy in height/weight!! I too think the med is important with all the new foods to come, and teething. The benedryl (as I said before) really helped my nephew. He did switch to liquid claritin (makes him a little less sleepy). I am so glad he is doing so good :)

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!
Sounds good! Morgan's dr is having a baby in Sept. I hope she won't be out long. She was so tired the last time we were there.

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
Wow he is a big guy, but proportional! :) Sounds like everything went well. It's sad not to be cutting any meds, but if that's what he needs right now, then it's for the best, right? I did remember that he is tongue tied. My friends son just had his clipped about a month ago, she said it was much harder on her than him...

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. 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.... :(
Hooray for big babies!! I hope his little foot gets better soon and that he quickly outgrows the need for Prevacid. We should start a football team with our little linebackers...Nate can come, too!
