the prevacid effect
saturday i forgot to give emi her prevacid, sunday too. her days were actually alright so i didn't realize until wedensday that i forgot to give her medicine. i decided that since she was 4 days in and she seemed to be fine i will keep her off meds and see what happens. i know i really should have weaned down but i think i need to know if she is still refluxing. we have a GI apt on monday and i will talk to them about it.

INTERESTING effect i am noticing though... i am not sure if this is related or not (b/c emily has been having good tummy days form the week prior) but past 4 days OFF of prevacid she has not had one diarehea episode. i mean i have been especially careful of what shes been eating but even then she may have one a day. for the past 4 days in a row she's had none. sounds like another belly mystery... i bet tomorrow she will have a few blowouts JUST b/c i posted this lol

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.

Interesting. We have taken Katie off of all solids and I started giving her Mylanta nightly for the last week and today she had a poop that was just like when she had solids. Her last two bites of banana were over 2 weeks ago; not sure if the Mylanta is causing regular not runny poo or if it is taking this long for solids to run through her. It's so hard to tell what is their normal and what is medicine induced, KWIM?

How did Emi like spaghetti? I assume she did ok with the sauce? I love to see lo's eating messy things and having it end up all over their face!

Check with your
doctor first!
