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.
Please pray for poop! LOL
Ok you don't have to pray for it but.... Poor Keira-she is so constipated and I've tried the fruits, Miralax, water, you name it. Nothing is working. I've called the pedi and the GI. It's making her reflux act up too. :( I wish she could just poop and feel better.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Can she have grapes yet? I will tell works for Nate every time. I cut them in half for him, maybe you can even mash them up. It sometimes takes up to 24 hours but I am always excited to see a big mushy poop (sorry, that's kinda gross, lol) No other fruits or liquids does it for him...only green or red seedless grapes. I hope she goes soon :)

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.... :(
How much Miralax did you give her? Sometimes when Sebastian is constipated and hasn't gone for a few days, I really up the Miralax dose for a day or so - meaning give him about an extra half teaspoon to get things moving...hope she feels better soon...I am praying for poop (boy, have I been there).

My doc also said you can use milk of mag. It usually does the trick pretty fast. Otherwise have you tried rectal stimulation, a warm bath, or a supository? They usually get results too. Otherwise putting corn syrup in her bottles until she has one helps too.

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Poor thing! Juice did nothing for us but make her feel worse. She won't drink anything sweet now. Apricots seemed to really help her go when she could have them.

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 tried it all (rectal stimulation, massage, baths, compresses, apple juice, prune juice, water, started with fruit pruees), and finally used suppositories under our ped's and GE's recommendation, until we could introduce solids and use prunes. Prunes worked great - she had a helping every day and she goes regularly now without them. The probiotics helped quite a bit in that department as well.

I'd say try the warm bath, massage, and rectal stimulation before going gung-ho for the suppositories.
