Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
Coping
I was just reading Katiesmommy's post about coping with humor. I try, but I'm having a really hard time right now. Zack barely eats anything...any solid food including runny stuff he just gags on...I'm not sure it's a texture issue, I think it's an oral aversion. He was doing SO MUCH better and now it's like we're back at square one before the Prevacid...he's refusing everything. Anyway, my point is that I feel like i'm at the end of my rope. I'm so tired of crying and fighting this...I just hate that feeding is so miserable!!! I need to call the GI, but I just needed to whine. OK, I'm done whining now. :) Back to work!

(((HUGS))) Do you think maybe he needs a med increase? My son had the opposite hated his bottle and loves his food. He got over and I really hope your son does too. Whine away, we all need to.

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!
We had some gagging on the runny stuff, but I added a little oatmeal cereal to it and she sis fine. {{HUGS}} We're here for you - whine and complain all you need!

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Katie hated, hated, hated the runny stuff and would refuse to eat it. Her rice cereal and oatmeal were like cement and I would add oats or bananas to her fruits to make them thicker. Have you tried splitting up his Prevacid? We tried once a day and at the 23 hour mark we had a screaming, squirming kid; thirty minutes after we gave it to her she was back playing and only whinning. BTW:Whine all you want here! That's what we are here for(and to make fun of you too! :) )

You are not alone. I too am at a low point in this challenge. I guess we just have to take it day by day and hope the next will provide relief and answers. :)

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.
hey there. are kiddos are a couple of weeks apart. i'm going thru the same thing. coyle is barely eating any solids at all-he is now completely refusing simple foods such as mashed sweet taters mixed with pears.. he will only eat cherrios & puffs with any consistency. i cry every day because of it. my husband is frustrated with me because his attitude is "well, if he won't eat-he won't eat" and i'm thinking is he insane? why, why won't he eat? he's waking for night time bottles too. is zack doing that? how's his growth? coy's is ok by some standards-poor by others. he was 4.5 @ birth and is 15.5 now.

complain all you want-the support here is wonderful.
