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.... :(
Does anyone else only change diapers when your kid is vertical? - OT
Seriously, I have not changed a diaper (with the exception of the middle of the night) since the middle of May. I kid you not - it is in Sebastian's baby book. The kid screams bloody murder if I even attempt to lay him down. Before, he would just crawl away, leaving a trail or pee or poop in his wake (thank God for Pergo. It was NOT fun in the old rental where we had carpet). Now I just stand him up in front of the ottoman (if we we are in the living room) or the rocking chair (if we are upstairs in his room) and do the deed like tha! I am actually a wiz at changing him like this (because I obviously had/have no choice), but I can forget about my mom or MIL having any success! I feel sorry for whoever else has to watch him one of these days. Does anyone else's kid do this? My friend's kid is TWO, and she still changes him on a changing pad on the dresser. Hahahahahaa - a joke for us. I had to stop that at four months! What the crap??

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.
It was really, really bad for us from months 7 and up until about 5 days ago. All of a sudden, he decided he wasn't going to run away or roll over all the time anymore. he still does it but it isn't nearly as bad as before. and, i so wish i had hardwood.. i have so much dog pee/poop & baby pee/poop on my carpet.. nothing works to get stains out either! GROSSS!!!

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.
NICE! When I worked in a 2 yr old room I had to do the same thing. Some kids would let me change them laying down, for poop, and some kids could be distracted with a toy... but most of the time it was while standing. SOmetimes it was WAYYY easier that way!

Meridith, mom to Ethan born 4/23/08. Ethan was diagnosed with reflux at about 1 month. He has been on Zantac (unsuccessful) and Prevacid. He is currently taking 7.5 mg of Prevacid 2x per day, with good results. We also suspect MPI, though this hasn't been confirmed by a doctor yet.
Ethan is mostly breastfed, though we are doing one bottle of soy formula each day. We also do some homeade "solids' including, so far pears, avocado, sweet potato, and peaches.

I have been trying to resist the urge to share this picture, but you wen tand posted a topic where I had to share his naked little butt.

Does this not look like a kid who will be running, crawling, twisting and turning away from any and all diaper changes just as soon as he figures it out?

Mary & Nicholas 7-17-03 (non-refluxer)allergies, asthma on Singulair and Flovent & Aidan 1-28-07(my refluxer)Nissen Fundoplication on June 20, 2008, FTT, MSPI, DGE, ear tubes, allergies and severe GERD now currently taking just Prevacid and drinking Elecare Vanilla 1+.
It is funny how different children are. My oldest was exactly like Sebastian. I didn't know why we even bought a changing table as we never used it. I ended up buying pull-ups long before he had any interest in potty training so he could just step in them and I could rip them off in motion. We obviously still had to use a real diaper at night because pulls up don't hold very much in. Aidan on the other hand I literally say lets change your butt and he gets a diaper and lays down on the floor to be changed. He already pees in the potty too. I am blown away by how different kids are.

Elyse has been a roll-awayer, crawl-away-er, and now a walk-awayer and all of the above. It is stinkin' HARD (and I mean stinkin, lol) to change her diaper. I have had to hold her down, have DH distract her with tickles/silly noises, when she stands up for a diaper change it is even harder bc she is more apt to run the other direction. This girl already hides when i say it's time to change her diaper, or if she sees me get her clothes or pjs to change.

Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
LOL I used to change Rachel on the fly, running around with the diaper. By the time they could roll over, I usually resorted to a towel on the floor!

Lorenzo b.4/25/07 1 week in NICU w/ aspirate pneumonia from a reflux episode; diagnosed GERD at 9weeks; Used Zantac for 5months. Currently using Chinese Medicine and Craniosacral Therapy. GERD, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Sensory Processing Disorder. Ask me about breastfeeding a refluxer! Pic: day 5 in the NICU.
Yep, we change diapers on the fly around here too -- and they're cloth, which is even more complicated and, no doubt, hilarious to watch as I duck walk around behind Lorenzo's naked butt trying to wrap a floppy diaper on his behind. The real challenge is just beginning for us, though, as he has just learned how to remove his clothing and diapers. I think we may have to move outdoors so he can live naked until he is potty trained....

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.

Well, Aubrey def went through a phase where she did not like her diaper changed anywhere or anytime (sensory issues). My ds was ALWAYS changed while he was playing. He did not have time to stop and be changed. Kept him from throwing a fit. Aubrey is already showing early signs of potty training-she goes and gets her own diaper. She tells us when she goes poop, sometimes she even holds her vajaja when she is peeing and says uh-oh. Oh ya and she already asks to sit on the potty. Granted it lasts 2 sec and she wants off. I am not ready for my baby to potty train tho...

Nothing like ripping off the poopy diaper an dhaving poop fall onto your feet. What a lovely way to spend this afternoon.
