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
Great, now we have puke
If I thought Nutramigen vomit was bad, it can't hold a candle to french fry puke. Yuck. Halley didn't sleep well at all last night and after 3 hours of her kicking me in the ribs, I finally laid her in her crib. When I went to get her this morning, she had french fries (and god knows what else) stuck to her face. She's pretty clingy today. I'm not sure if it's the after effects of last week's surgery or if she's picked up a virus.

Also, for those of you whose los have had the adenoid removal, is it normal for them to snore like a freight train afterward? I finally ended up putting my earplugs in last night because she was so loud she was rattling the windows.

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!
Oh no! I'm sorry....I'm just betting it's a virus. It's going around here again too. I don't know about the snoring.

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.... :(
Nothing like having a regurgitated fry stuck to your face, I am sure. EWWWW for both mommy and baby. I don't know anything about the surgery, but I can see how it would be related, maybe? Like that whole ear-nose-throat thing...maybe she was gagging? BLEH. Hope this was an isolated episode.

Patti, mom to Max (3/04) with EE and chronic sinus issues; Lucy (6/07) with reflux
Our son had his adenoids out last year...just our experience, but he slept very quietly about a week after. They do start to lose their scabs about a week or 10 days after, maybe it has something to do with that? I guess I might also be a little concerned about the vomitting as well - although if she is swallowing a lot of mucous from the surgery site, it could be related. - Patti

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
They will snore for a little while (can't remember how long). I think they are swollen from the surgery. She will be quietly sleeping soon.

Hope she's feeling better soon.

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!
Poor thing!
Check with your
doctor first!
