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.
When is this average and when is it reflux?
Keira has had the hiccups a total of three times so far today. The kind that could last until 5 mins or longer if I didn't intervene w/ some water. Is this always reflux or could it just be usual hiccups? :( They don't seem to bother her but that could be due to the Prevacid. She had them even when on the Nutram but today it's been like every few hours...

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!
I have a champion hiccupper. She actually went 2 days without stopping when she was 3 weeks old (hence, got into the MD b/c it made the vomit worse and got the dx) I think sometimes hiccups are just hiccups from swallowing too much air. My MD said that even though all kids get them, when it starts to cause the silent reflux or causing vomit, then it's probably the reflux flaring a bit.

Nope-actually she has LESS gas on this new formula than on the Nutram which is odd to me....

Cooper hiccups a lpt. And they used to make him so upset and then he would choke while doing it. He actually hiccup in excess in the womb too. I think the hiccups bring up the reflux and then they cause a flare up, but it could be the other way around. Who knows!

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Katie and I both hiccuped a lot in the womb; we both still do. I do notice with her it seems worse on bad reflux days though.
Check with your
doctor first!
