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 saw on the post about Rory that Michelle said that Rory would cry when she returned. I am reading a book on raising boys, and they were talking about healthy attachment in toddlers, and they said that often a child will not cry when mom leaves, but will cry when she returns, and that is actually an indicator of healthy attachment. Basically, they are confident enough to go on their own, but miss you while you are gone and trust that you want to hear about it whne you come back.

Since I am a worrier, I just want to be clear, the book didn't say that if this doesn't happen, that the child is not well attached, so no worries if your lo doesn't do this.

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
That's interesting! Halley doesn't cry anymore when we return (unless she's been in an unfamiliar place). She usually breaks out into laughter, which just warms my heart :-)

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much. made my day!!! Nate cries every time I pick him up from school or grammy's (if he was there all day). I was feeling horrible about this. I felt like he was telling me he was mad at me for leaving, lol. I have been entering the room very excited and open arms now, and he seems to cry less. Meridith, you made my day by posting this, thanks!!

Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
Jazz use to do this too. From what i read it is as if they are telling you that they feel safe enough to let their guard down and cry now that you are here for them. I kinda took it as she was telling me she missed me and was crying to let out all her stress and worry about me being didn't last too long before she stopped.

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.
will we get to the point that joslyn will cry when i return or are we stuck forever crying when i walk out of the room?! it is funny i went to school for early education.....i was the one explaining sep. anxiety.... now i am the one going through it!!!oh the tables have changed!
Check with your
doctor first!
