Amalia update
Amalia went to GI today. She thinks Amalia will probably be one of those kids that are on meds for a 3-4 years of age. Amalia is back down to 15 mg and we are trying to wean her off that, giving her 3/4 of a pill, but she is starting to cough again sometimes during meals. GI said not to push the weaning. HAppy to ehar Prevacid is finally approved by the FDA for infants. I mentioned the vitamin B defficiancy risk, she said she has heard about it but that no one in her clinic has ever suffered from that- to put Amalia on a multivitamin to ease my fears. Other than that, she is doing fine. She still is not sleeping thru the night 100% of the time, I say probably 65%... molars are not out yet. I have no time to put pitcures (I'll try later sometime) but she is tall and thin, 33 1/2 inches long and 24.7 pounds. Getting prettier everyday. Trying to potty train her- stubborn little thing, holds it and does not want to go on the potty, having to back off cause she is strating to hold ehr bowels and get constipated. Special hugs and kisses to Nate's mom, MAg's mom, lorenzo mama, babyquinn, halleyann's mom, mila and rory's mom, refluxmama, carla, Aubrey's mom (prayed for you- hope you are ffeling better), eddie's mom, brain fart- the girl who lacks the sucrose enzyme...God Bless !

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.
Thanks for the hugs mely!! I am glad to hear an update on Amalia...can't believe she's gonna be a year soon. I was really hoping you would tell us she is sleeping thru the night 100%...but 65% is better than she did a year ago, right?? You take care. I can't wait to see an updated pic of the girls :)

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!
So good to hear from you! Thanks for the hugs! I didn't know that about the FDA. I guess enough kids have used it for them to know it's ok now. Hugs to both girls!
Check with your
doctor first!
