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.

Hi there! Ok so if I'm using RTF formula then what would you say about the ounces ratio? I'm a little fried today so ... :P Keira never really spit up unless she was over fed at the very first weeks of life or she was sick. Is vomiting or spit up a sign of a milk protein intolerance? The Alimentum gave her runny stools but the regular formula (which at the first start of things was regular Enfamil) never did. She was just gassy as all get out. Green beans don't agree with her and I tried carrots once around 4 months or so and that didn't go over so I never tried them again as of yet. I wish we could scan our babies and have a computer tell us exactly what will make their digestive systems happy and what won't so we didn't have to do trial and error. :P

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.
i know, a scanner would be awesome! the alimentum has alwasy given coy runny stools.. the GI and I both agree that it is common for runny stools on alimentum since it is so broken down. the company agrees. wonder why nutramigen isn't the same. anyway, the RTF makes it hard but you can still do it. I'd put 2 ounces in a bottle and then one scoop of formula. mix it up real good.. then you can add in your 4 ounces of RTF or whatever amount to take it up to the #oz. you want for that bubba.

i'm glad she's not spit up much but in our experience the silent reflux is the worst! coy's silent reflux has gotten much worse and only pukes when teething/sick. carrots are going better for us. you can steam some babies for an hour and then try them..she might do okay now.

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.

What??!! Alimentum makes Katie's stools either clay-like or like little rabbit turds.

Mom2Coy: LOL! If you don't read the previous sentence otherwise it looks like you steam babies to give to Keira!
