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.... :(
Well, if I had any doubts about his fine motor skill development, they are gone now!!!! (As is my cash)
Thanks, Sebastian, for racing over to my nightstand, pulling down a FULL (but no longer sealed) can of Neocate onto the floor, and chewing on the lid. Thanks then for pulling off the lid and dumping the ENTIRE can onto the floor. And thanks for smiling at me and waving the scoop with glee when I came from taking my 30-second pee break five feet away from you. It is a good thing you are so cute, because now that I am housepoor, this isn't as immediately funny as it might have been a few weeks ago. (But it was still kind of funny)

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
Well, at least he ENJOYED the Neocate, even if it wasn't as planned!

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.
OMG...we have had a close call before with our neocate!! I can't believe he dumped it (sorry to LOL)

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.
Yikes...I hope you weren't low on Neocate! :) Keira thought it was fun to reach for my cell phone and throw it as hard as she could on the floor to see if I'd pick THAT "toy" up. When I did- the screen was gone. Thank goodness it was time to upgrade anyways!

Little stinker! That is like taking a $20 bill and starting it on fire, OUCH!

If your FIL was babysitting he would have sweeped it right up and put it back in the can. You can't waste that stuff! LMAO!

i'm thankful that the walmart which is 20 minutes from my house sells alimentum for 22.88 instead of 25.67 @ the meijer uptown. i drive for the cheaper price but everything is cheaper @ that store so i save in the long run... totally, OT-dh out of town so bored eating chips, lol

emily did the SAME THING with her nutramigen when she was about 11 months old. for some reason i had my last free can (from a WIC check) in our diaper bag and she got in and and formula was EVERYWHERE! needless to say i had to shell out the money to replace that can and get more nutramigen until i could use the next months checks, kids!!
Check with your
doctor first!
