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.
WOW! that is a miracle!

So sad. Preemies face so many challenges...and that one was born waaaaay too early! I remember being in the hospital on bedrest and the neonatologist came to see me and told me at 24 weeks (or was it 26-how quickly we forget) that elyse had a 40% chance of survival if born then. I was devastated. That poor family.
Check with your
doctor first!
