Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
I feel really bad posting this but....
I had so much pressure on the home front that I caved. I bought the Similac Sensitive that the GI doc suggested. He and dh don't see why I kept Keira on Nutram for so long. So I tried 2 ounces mixed w/ 4 ounces of Nutram twice today. No issues as of yet but it's only been one day and 4 ounces. DH wants me to give her a whole bottle of the SS but I said he's lucky I'm willing to even try what I'm trying now. Do you think if she wasn't able to tolerate it that she would have been acting up today? Seems like when certain solids didn't agree with her she'd be almost instantly upset. I told dh if I feel she's not doing well on this then she's to stay on Nutram till her and I are both cool with trying milk. I don't see why he wants this done now when she's two months from a milk trial anyways. MEN!!! I sorta feel like I let her down and then again if she can tolerate it I'll be hearing about that for months to come from dh. :(

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Hopefully the SS will go better than you think. When we had Halley on soy formula, she did fine for about 4 or 5 days then we saw lots of mucous in her bms. I would say that if she goes 7 to 10 days without any reaction, then you may be in the clear. Good luck!!

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!
I agree, give it a few days the way you're doing it now. I hope it goes well. If it does, don't look back and wonder if she could have switched sooner...that makes no difference at all!

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.
Hi there. For us, the problem was a delayed reaction of 2 hours. When I trialed good start @ 6 mo. after 2 mo. of alimentum i added 1 scoop to a 6 oz. bottle. 2 hrs later vomit, cramps, passed out. of course, this is an extreme reaction. same thing with yogurt. when coy was on reg. milk formula or soy he just vomited all day long. when we intro new foods he has a reaction fairly soon, usually w/n a day or so. for example, mango gives him explosive poop and butt rash the next day. apricots too... so, i'd say give it 3-4 on the 1 scoop if you don't notice any problems. then move it up to 2 scoops for 3-4 days...

wishing you great luck!

i know, it is sooooo expensive

I ditto what the pps said. I hope she can tolerate it and I would give it a couple of days before mixing in more. Considering her reflux and sensitive tummy issues a slow wean would be better. Good luck!

day two- more bottles with the Similac Sensitive in the Nutram but same ratio and no issues at all. We'll see.... I'm still going to do this very slowly but no problems w/ gas or bm's or anything. I'm in shock. The hard thing to know too is how much of it was the formula bothering her or the brain issue going on that we didn't know about. Because even with the change in formula the issues were still there really until we got her on the right dose of Prevacid so.... we'll see!

Mila is on Peptamen JR 30 cal by NG tube. Open Heart Surgery 2/08/08. Captopril, Zantac, Losec, Lasix.
Very stinky liquid gold! But, that being said, Mila's formula runs over 1000 a month! Seriously nasty! I hope she continues to do well on the SS!
