I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
stay at home work
Does anyone know of any jobs for stay at home moms? Thanks!

i have yet to find a JOB for stay at home moms that is compleatly ligit. i found a website called www.genuinejobs.com but thats mostly free lance for designers and IT people. there are plenty of "own your own business-be your own boss" type of things, you can cruise through cafe mom and i *think* p-2-p has a board too (i may be wrong). speaking of that topic, my friend JUST called me up today saying she found a work from home job that was actually ligit and shes starting tomorrow, i got all excited.... it's to be a phone sex operator! wth!!! not how i want to earn my money but whatever 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
I work from home, but it's a pretty specialized job, experience and education-wise (I do healthcare business appraisals). I know that there are some customer service jobs that you can do from home. There was a segment on GMA a few weeks ago. Here is the link to the segment: http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=5545610. It has some pretty good options.

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.
I recently just applied with West at Home (www.westathome.com) < I think that's the site. Anyways- they're legit according to MSN. I'm waiting to hear back from them.

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.

After my crummy week at work, being a phone sex operator is sounding VERY appealing...

DANIE and DONESSA! My goodness!! jacky-my friend did internet coursework to become a medical transcriptionist. She has been doing it for years now and makes good money (don't know how much). She does it early in the morning before her kids get up, like 4-8 am. yes it takes some schooling but it is definitely legit!

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.... :(
I read this and told my husband if he thought I would be a terrible phone sex operator, and he gave as reosunding "YES!" He said that I would be like, "Wait, can you hold on? That's my sister on the other line." and "You want to do what? Ew. You are such a gross pervert! Wait, I mean, oh yes, oh yes."

I teach English online from home, and it is great except for the working part. Te only part I don't really mind is answering student emails. :)

Where do you apply for that phone sex operator job. If the pay is good.... LOL! I could never do that . Someone tried to get me to have online sex in a facebook thing and I was blushing.
