Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Melissa-Sebastian's mommy
Melissa, thank you for the info on the shaking possibly being related to ears! While talking to my mom she reminded me that Katie has to be tied down so they can look at her ears and she only drinks a few ounces at a time while awake which fits in perfectly! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

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!
Oohh! I guarantee her ears are hurting! When Maggie had infections, I always knew as soon as the doc put the thing near her ear. She'd squirm. If they were clear, she didn't flinch. Maggie had 5 infections and always had fluid. They said the fluid was no big deal, but that just makes no sense to me. It's not supposed to be there. How can it not matter?

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.... :(
No provlem - it just sounded like my own kid, that's all. Try the ENT. The specialists have a tool that the peds don't have...they can detect things way in there that might otherwise go unnoticed. I also wanted to tell you that the only blood results they gave me right away yesterday were Sebastian's blood cell count and his platelet count...both slightly elevated. But I know he is not sick-sick, so I attribute it to his allergies and reflux. Try not to worry too much!

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.
mine always pulls his ears and also hates it when the ped gets in there. but no one has ever diagnosed an ear infection. i've been told that kids pull ears when tired but i agree-ask for a ENT referral...
Check with your
doctor first!
