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!
Teething - venting - OT
Lauren still only has 3 teeth on the bottom, one of them being a molar. Well she is now getting teeth on each side of her bottom fronts and I am losing my mind! She has been so cranky since Thursday! I have been giving Tylenol sparingly so far, but just finally dosed her up and put her in bed.

For the past few days her naps have been super short or not at all and her night time sleep has been disrupted. She will literally wake up with a high pitched scream. She puts herself back to sleep most of the time, but got up at 5:20 this morning :( I am really starting to consider taking her to the doctor because she's soooo fussy and clingy! This is behavior I only usually see when she has an ear infection...

I know I have been spoiled I guess by not having to deal with teething...Of course I have major PMS and I am worried about going back to work in another 2 weeks.

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
I know teething can contribute to ear infections so I am wondering if it could be her ears too. It's so hard to tell. Brian has 16 teeth and teething definitely bothered him but if he was really having trouble sleeping and crying out in pain, it was usually his ears. Keep us posted!

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Poor Lauren. Has she been running a fever at all? I think I'd take her in, if just for peace of mind.

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
At teething's worse over here I did motrin and tylenol piggy backed and Orajel swabs ont he teeth. That got us some relief. But to be honest. that was only with the first 4 teeth. After that he would pop them and I would find them later!!! LOL
