Mom to Eddie 1/07 and Nicholas 6/08. Eddie allergic and refluxer now on cow's milk!!!! Nicholas also a refluxer on prevacid and breast milk. Mom on elimination diet AGAIN!!
Nicholas and Eddie Update
I have been so busy but thinking of you all. Nicholas has been switched to prevacid my ped actually gave me the script she said it was to much for me to wait 14 days to see the GI, he has done really well for the last 3 days he has been on it since last Wed. He is still huge last week he weighed 14 lbs 2 oz at 6 weeks and measured 24 inches, he is such a good baby and has such a good temparament. Eddie had an ear infection last week and yesterday got an upper respiratory infection /virus what a week he gets everything!!! He is on regular milk though so we are happy. He goes t the GI on Thurs. I will update Hugs to all of you El elaine

I have many heroes in my life; parents, husband, friends....and women like you who forego milk while breastfeeding. I know how hard it is since I couldn't have any milk at all my first trimester; it is in EVERYTHING!!!!!!!! Good job!!!
