Sorry I'vebeen mia, trying to keep up w/ my busy boy.
Sorry guys I haven't posted lately. i have been reading but was unable to reply. Not enough time! Cooper is everywhere these days. It is so tiring, but so much fun. He is doing well. He is teething again I believe, which is not fun. We missed his second dose of prevacid yesterday and it made for a tough night. This made me a little sad b/c I feel like he's probably not going to be ready to go off meds as soon as I'd hoped. We had some feeding issues for a few days, tongue thrusting, turning his head, but that seems to be better now. Do you think it could be the teeth? I'm going to try and be better about posting guys!

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.
Don't be sorry...it gets busy as they get older. Don't worry too much about him not getting off the meds when you had hoped, the weaning process is different for all of our lo's. Teething still causes Nate to have flare ups and not eat. I had to use mylanta the other day...it has been a month since I used it. Take care and thanks for the update :)

Kelly, mom of two boys with GERD. John (born 11/03) was on 40mg Nexium til 15 mos old. Second son Brian (born 05/07) started on Zantac. Now on 22.5 mg Prevacid Solutabs plus Carafate 0.5 ml 1 x day
Brian is still on meds at 14 mos because he has had so many problems with his ears that the GI said to wait til that's resolved before we wean. My older ds wasn't weaned til 14 or 15 mos. I am in no hurry to take him off. Sorry about the teething. Brian had a tough time with that too but he got all his teeth incl his 1 yr molars before he turned one so we are done for awhile.

Seamus was born 7/6/07, one month early with Silent Reflux. Zantac since 3 weeks old, currently taking herbs and probiotics.
Great to hear the latest..Teeth can really make them do funny things with their tongues and heads..Might as well just blame it on teething and move on..Have a good day !

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.
sounds like teeth. coyle does not do well while teething. he's cutting his top eye teeth and his reflux is out of control, sleep in the toilet, won't eat much aside from cheerios. drinkign hsi bottle okay. i've heard even kiddos w/o reflux will refuse solids while teething. hope it passes soon!
