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.
Now I'm more confused
Ok we're on day six of the Nutram/Similac Sensitive switch. She has been on Nutram for a long time and before that was Alimentum. I remember once a nurse saying if Keira's poop (sorry) was green on the Alimentum that she could be lactose intolerant. I didn't think much of her opinion. Well now that she's been drinking 5 ounces of SS with 1-2 ounces of Nutram, she has LESS gas then she's ever had?!? So could she have been lactose intolerant this whole time?!? I mean I'm not complaining but it would have been nice to of known this before.

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.... :(
Sebastian's poop has been green on every formula he has tried...even the milk-free Neocate...the company rep I called said that green poop is normal for babies, as did our pediatrician...not sure if this helps or not. I hope so!

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.
coy has green poop. all colors are normal and it doesn't have anything to do with lactose intolerance. besides there isn't any lactose in nutramigen/alimentum anyhow. not sure what she was thinking.
Check with your
doctor first!
