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.
joslyn update
Well I called back this morning... come to find out they gave the doc the wrong number to call me back. I just got off the phone with a pedi. She is not dehydrated.... from info I gave them. She said that she is prob okay... maybe just more sufficient in her eating, maybe teething, or maybe her age to where she gets distracted and pulls off. She is still having 6-8 wet diapers a day, had a nice thick poopy today (like playdough). Her mouth is not sticky on the inside... it is wet. She cries with tears. So the doc said to call the office in the morning and they will get her in to weigh her to see if her weight is going up. I tod the nurse that joslyn is almost 5 months old (in 4 days) and she is maybe 12 lbs. So she said that they woul dget her in tomorrow for a weight check. She said not to worry about it today, not to stress over it. That as long as she seems okay and happy........she is okay. So I will call in the AM tomorrow for a weight check apt. THANKS ladies! **Jacky

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
I am glad you finally heard back! I hope you get good news tomorrow :)

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.
let us know how the weight check turns out. coy was 11.5 @ 5 mo (4 mo. adjusted) and i too stressed about it... so, i understand where you are coming from. as long as she is pooping/peeing etc. then that is good. i'm voting that she is just more efficient @ eating and probably gained well recently.

ethan's mom
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 am soo glad you heard back today. I kept thinking about you guys, and hoping that you were doing okay.
Check with your
doctor first!
