Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
raise your hand...
if you hate the reflux monster! I DO! Emily had a bad day yesterday and the day before, she actually spit up for the first time in forever. Now i am beginning to think that her tantrums and short temper are pain related. I gave her mylanta every time she had a short temper moment and really today was a great day. I can't wait till Emily's Gi apt on the 8th, i think i will ask about a diff PPI med or even Levisn.

Audrey also threw up on me 3 times yesterday. The stupid lactulose is not working well even on the increased dose, poor baby... GI appt is Sept 15th though.

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.

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.
Our hands are up! Sounds like they all have flares at the same time anymore!
Check with your
doctor first!
