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.
back on prevacid
Joslyn has been back on prevacid for about a week now. We were "fed up" with the way she was nursing, and her pedi saying it was fine and normal. Pulling off after 3 -4 mins and screaming for 2 weeks is not normal. So DH and I decided to try prevacid again. We have been giving her smaller doses of zantac as well... just until the prevacid kicks in. Well last night at her last feeding (9:30 pm) she ate for about 14 mins...... but did not scream at all! Then this morning at her 10:00 am feeding, she did not scream.... 1:00 pm feeding.... no screaming..... 4:00 pm no screaming! WAHOO!!!!!! She is not eating for 20 mins..... however, she is not pulling of to scream. She will go for 5-7 mins each side and pull off and look up at me and smile. So I guess the prevacid is working and it was not "normal" t was her reflux. We go back to her GI Spec in a week.... we will talk to him then. *** Happy mommy..... Jacky***

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:

Are plan with Jedd is to keep him on some type of med until he can verabally "tell" us what is going on. Then we will do med waening the rest of the way. It's jsut soo hard to watch him off of meds. It's not fair to him.

Glad to hear that adding the prevacaid back in has done great.

I totally understand your bfing frustration. I had a lot of trouble bfing my refluxer and I'd cry right along with him when he would pull off and scream. It sounds like you are a very patient person. Great job!!!
