Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Does this make sense?
A little girl in my class apparently has reflux. Her mom told my co-teacher that she can have milk but not when she eats acidic things. How does milk with acid make a diff? I thought you just couldn't have stuff altogether??? Like if milk bothers her, then she can't have it etc. I'm confused. If I get to meet her mom this afternoon, I'm gonna tell her about our site. Hmmm....maybe not.....that'd be weird, lol.

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
It could be that having the two together causes so much acid that it hurts her. Milk bothers my stomach too and I think if I had it with an orange I would keel over.

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.
You can look to the bible and old dietary laws for this one.. which is why my grandfather never let us drink anything with meals, esp. milk. The theory (and some scientific evidence) suggests that milk was designed to be in the stomach with absolutely no other substances. Milk stops digestion long enough for the substances that nurture and protect an infant to survive. I think Leviticus also says Milk should not be combined with grass or dead animal flesh or grains or insects. When milk is combined with other foods milk prevents the stomach from doing the job for which it was designed. What happens is that after you ingest milk it causes a "rebound" effect and more stomach acid.. so i can see her point. but really, you shouldn't drink with meals anyway and i've just recently read that babies shouldnt' have their milk and their solids together either... HTH
