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.... :(
Sebastian given Nasonex?? What do you think?
Hi ladies. quick question. Sebastian has been vomiting 1-2 full bottles every day (the night bottle and the first-thing-in-the-morning bottle) for a straight week now. I took him to the ENT yesterday (and the ped Wednesday to no avail) and he confirmed that Sebastian has a crapload of post nasal drip that he is swallowing/gagging on. He gave me a new saline rinse to try (I had been using Little Noses, but he said this is more natural) . He also prescribed Nasonex! I tried it last night, and Sebastian didn't puke up either bottle, but his nose is dry a little bloody, even, on one side. What do you all think? Thanks in advance!!

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
They gave it to me and hubby; he doesn't mind it but I cannot stand the taste/drip down my throat. I love Claritin but it gives dh sinus infections by drying him up too much. I would try it for a day or two and see if he adjusts to it. I have a head cold this week, could he have one too? Did he tell you to use Ocean? That is what they tell us to use since it is just basically salt and water. HTH!

I hate hate hate nose spray personally, but use it when I have to and it helped. i have a very sensitive stomach and always vomit when I have even the littlest bit of drainage and it is so miserable, so to me it is worth it. Maybe you could cut back the dose to help the dryness. It is such a hard call, but I would think dryness is better than loosing all that food.

Okay, I think I can help you here. Donnie is on Nasonex and I spray it in his nose after he has gone to sleep so I don't have to wrestle with him. Our ped told us to make sure when we spray it that we do it away from the middle of the nose, to point the nozzle toward the outer part because it can cause bleeding from the thin skin between the nostrils. Does that make sense? We do that and have never had a nose bleed. Hope that helps! -Liz

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.
i use nasal spray when my allergies act up. it is the only thing that gets rid of my post nasal drip. it does give me an upset stomach but it goes away with time. if it stopped the puking then that is great news. i use the ocean spray for coyle when he is dry (and for myself) great brand!

didn't know he was seeing an ENT. sounds like he knows what he is doing.
Check with your
doctor first!
