Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
Bottle No More!! YEAH!!!
We did it! We have successfully weaned from the before bed bottle. I wasn't planning on doing it, but we had a sitter 2 nights in a row and she refused her bottle from the sitters and slept through the night so I just went with it! Our GI said that we should do it as long as we felt it was nutritionally necessary (20 oz per day).

I offered her a sippy of milk and she drank it all the first night, then about 1/2 the second night and hardly any at all the 3rd night. Tonight she just snuggled up and I rocked her for a few seconds and put her in bed :) She's sound asleep.

We are 7 days bottle free! Yippee no more washing the Dr. Browns bottle for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
That's great! I'll be excited when that happens here someday. I'm not in a rush but it will be nice whenever it happens later on as she won't let ANYONE give her the night time bottle and rock her at night but me. It makes getting a sitter and going out rather rough.

Kelly, mom of two boys with GERD. John (born 11/03) was on 40mg Nexium til 15 mos old. Second son Brian (born 05/07) started on Zantac. Now on 22.5 mg Prevacid Solutabs plus Carafate 0.5 ml 1 x day
That's awesome. We got rid of the other two bottles but still haven't given up the nighttime one with Brian. I know he doesn't "need" it because a few times we've forgotten it and he's slept through the night just fine but I just feel like we're both not ready to let it go yet. Soon though! Congrats on no more Dr Brown's!

Congrats!! Still haven't been able to wean my 20 months from his bottle. He takes one in am and before bed. He won't drink milk from a sippy even though he drinks other stuff from them.

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.
Awesome...this is GREAT news :)
