Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Wow! I really do admire you and Mollybeth for doing the elimination diet (I know there are others but only you 2 come to mind)! Having a milk allergy I know that everything has milk and soy and I can't imagine how you do it! Good job!!!!!!!

Lorenzo b.4/25/07 1 week in NICU w/ aspirate pneumonia from a reflux episode; diagnosed GERD at 9weeks; Used Zantac for 5months. Currently using Chinese Medicine and Craniosacral Therapy. GERD, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Sensory Processing Disorder. Ask me about breastfeeding a refluxer! Pic: day 5 in the NICU.
Ah yes, the cravings of those things off limits... I had been restricted from practically everything delicious when I was pregnant because of gestational diabetes, and then almost immediately I had to do an elimination diet and I remember day dreaming about eating ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner...

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
How is it going so far? I becam elactose intoleran thwne I was pregnant with Sebastian, and I missssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss cheese. A LOT. I feel your pain. Poor little Audrey. I hope this is the answer you need. You might want to eliminate soy, too...if you can stand it. (And I hate to say this, but eggs, too. Sebastian got very sick from eggs when I was nursing him...I just didn't know at the time. Soon, you'll find them to be nasty anyway!)
Check with your
doctor first!
