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.
Milk-Juice et. al. -OT sorta
So, I finally got coyle drinking milk out of a sippy cup. ONLY by flavoring it with V8 Veggie/Fruit Juice! seriously.. he loves the stuff. I do 4 oz milk and like 1/2 oz juice. is that really bad for him or should I keep doing it? He is down to two bottles a day now and sipple with the Muce/Jilk whatever... He spits it up but the spit up is effortless and painless.. much better than the silent reflux we get after a big bottle and no solids..

My son hates veggies. Even slathered in BUTTER! I'm gonna get more fat if i keep eating the way i prepare his food. anyway, any ideas on veggie feeding? we do okay with fruits.. melon, mandarin oranges, peaches, nanas, papaya are all a go.. won't touch any kind of veggie. have not tried corn yet tho.. is that appropriate for a one-year old?

I'd keep doing esp. since you are having a hard time getting veggies in him. I don't have any ideas...I do a chart at daycare that they can put and x on it if they eat their fruits and veggies. The one year olds could care less though.

Chris: Mom to Rayna Marie our little miracle born June 13, 2007. 7lbs 12oz. Diagnosed with GERD after ph probe at 5 weeks. Current weight 21lbs 8 oz. Prevacid 8ml in a.m. 2% milk
I'd keep doing it, whatever works right! Can't help in the veggie department, Rayna is a veggie freak! I've never seen anybody get so excited about veggies as she does. We can't do corn though, it gives her diarrhea.

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.

Personally, I'd keep up with the jilk/muce. I'm sure that you've already thought of most everything, but have you thought of letting him dip veggies in something. Maybe that would make them fun and interesting. I guess you can always keep hiding them in things he will eat or drink. There is that cookbook that Jerry Seinfeld's wife did where she sneaks veggies into everything, even chicken nuggets.

yeah, thats the only way i can get veggies in him. either in juice or i bake bread with carrots and zucchini and i add cauliflower to mac & cheese or veggies in my meatloaf.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!! You can always gradually back off the juice later

Nathan isn't big on veggies either. We too do the V8 fusion. We've also had luck if we put veggies in dishes like shepard's pie, chicken pot pie and chicken salad. When they're mixed into a dish he likes the flavor of, he seems to eat them. We also made a spinach quiche. He gobbled it the first time, not so much the second, but he's like that. Good luck!

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!
Whatever is working! I lived on V8 Fusion while I was pregnant until my heart burn got too bad. I also had a hard time getting enough fruits and veggies in! And I love sippy cups :)

Well, Elyse LOVED veggies until seriously about 3 weeks ago. now she won't touch them. So tonight i offered her corn (she always wants it when we have it, but it doesn't love her at all) and she ate a little. We shall see what happens to her bottom due to it!

I thought I had tried everything to get E to drink milk. but I never thought of adding juice. I will try that next! I think it's a great idea and not bad at all. Elyse takes her zantac with juice, i put about an ounce of straight juice with it in a bottle. The rest of the day she gets water or diluted juice and won't drink anything else. Go Coy, drinking it out of a cup so early!

I would try the dipping thing for veggies. Today I bought ricotta cheese and cream cheese to use as a dip for stuff so we'll see how it goes for tomorrow.

Check with your
doctor first!
