Confusion
Well Jessie's cold is slowly going away but she remains very fussy and hard to get to sleep at bedtime. She is mostly sleeping thru the night. I am very worried that her fussiness is the reflux since she has been off Prevacid about a week but she's not spitting up or burping a lot anymore(Like she was the first few days off but she has a virus then so it could have been that). Anyway I am very confused. So last night DH and I decided to try her on prevacid for 48 hours and then off prevacid for 48 hours to see if it helps. Then today she had a bad fall(only took a second and I feel so bad) so now that's going to add to my confusion about why she is fussy! Please pray we can figure this out and do the right thing.

I hope she feels better from the fall and the virus. It is so confusing, isn't it. Nolan did well weaning until abt the 10th day. Then the wet stinky burps came back and he had bad acid breath and he turned into a total fuss bucket. But there was no virus or fall so I don't know how you can tell with all that going on. I'm sorry I think just experimenting like you are is your only option. Good luck. I hope it isn't the reflux.

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.
I know your confusion. I went thru it during our wean. Have you considered a different med (just for temporary use) When we weaned from prevacid, we had a few good weeks. I was using mylanta like every night so the ped suggested us using the pepcid again (he was on this at night time along with the prevacid) I was hesitant but I knew it helped before. Nate had/has silent AR so during the night, I couldn't really tell if it was still bothering him unless I sat there and watched him. Amyway, long story short, we used a minimal amount of pepcid for about 3 weeks and we are med free now for over 2 months!! This is what worked for us...I just thought I would pass it along :)
