Atalia update
This is going to be quick. I am so sorry I have been so MIA. I have been soooo busy- very tired with both of my girls, but also extremely blessed. Atalia has been doing much better since her Prevacid dose was increased a few days ago.... Her diarrhea stopped with the Alimetnum, she has been on it for 12 days now. We just turned in three stool samples to check for occult blood today to make sure. Her discomfort now mainly seems to be from her major gassiness (very hard to burp just like Amalia was), which is better some days than others. She is no longer so congested, have not seen any phlegm in ehr spit ups (which she hardly does anymore)hardly ever chokes while being burped or drinking her formula ( which she was starting to do quite often). Since her prevacid dose was increased, no arching after feeding or when sleeping. At this point in time sleeps much more than Amalia did at her age. Thanks for everyone who still thinks about us. God Bless all of you.

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!
ahhh, she's so little! It's hard to remember that they start out that small :) I am happy to hear that you GI is being so aggressive with Atalia's dosage and that she's sleeping better for you! Take care!

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.
What a cutie pie. I am soooo happy she is doing better with the alimentum and prevacid increase. She sounds exactly like Nate (hard to burp and gassy, that was our entire 3 months)

Girl, I think about you all the time. You helped me more than you could ever know when I first found this forum. I know what it's like to have a toddler AND a newborn, your life is hectic!! Take care and thanks for the update :)

Bryson (3/06), former Neocate, Nexium, and Reglan baby. Diagnosed with peanut allergy and asthma. Weaned from meds in Spring 0f 08. Brother, Parker (6/04), was also on Prevacid and Pregestimil (formula) as an infant.
Glad that you have been able to avoid switching to Pregestimil as it is hard to find. I am happy that the Alimentum is working for her. She is a doll! We have the same carseat.

Mom (Laura) of 2 girls both with reflux: oldest, Larysa, born 11/14/03 has tons of allergy problems and reflux; youngest, Lauren, born 11/10/06 has Colic/Reflux since 2 1/2 weeks. Tried Zantac, Levsin and Mylanta all were no help. Was adding cereal to formula with every feeding. Tried Soy, Nutramigen and LactoFree formulas those were no help either. Currently on 30 mg of Prevacid / day and Carafate (as needed) 2 ml 4x/day. She is on regluar cow's whole milk and table foods. Picture: Taken 8-24-08.
I'm so glad she is doing better. How do you like Dr. Kaiser? I'm taking it that he is a big help for Atalia? I've been thinking about you. I've been MIA in action as well, I'm trying to find a job...........

Thanks everyone sooo much! Ceramom- I hope Mila is doing well, L menendez - I like the office as a whole- This week Dr. KAiser was on vacation and I told them about my concerns regarding the acid and another GI increased her prevacid dose. I'm very pleased with everyone, they are all very nice (I have been driving them pretty crazy myself with questions and concerns). POpz- I can't believe you remembered about the progestemil- you have a great memory! Gotta go- God Bless!
Check with your
doctor first!
