Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
She has finally started crawling!!!
Well she's crawling backwards but she's on all fours and not whining about it!!! Now my friends can leave me alone and stop driving me nuts about how if she doesn't crawl she will have mental delays too. Good lord...

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.
YAY!!!! So great! backwards is sooo cute. the neighbor boy did this for a few weeks. then he jumped like a frog for a few weeks then went to "regular" crawling. B4 you know it she'll be walkin! Your friends are being insenstitive :)... my GF's son just started walking @ 16 mo. She had a friend actually tell her it was about time! I mean, COME ON! I believe that kids who don't do these things early are just really smart and cautious!

Yep my cousin is 23 now but he never ever crawled. He went straight to walking and he played college football and now is a body builder so...looks like not crawling really messed HIM up! NOT! ;) Thanks for your replies! It really helps me keep sane! :)

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.
wahoo!!!!! great job!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Hooray! What a big step!! Now it is full spped ahead. You will never have a moment's peace or a unbroken breakable items again!

As for your friends, it seems like they might need Louise to make a special delivery. Maybe tell that how crawling is NOT even considered a milestone because so many kids don't do it. She is perfect the way she is!!

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including,,, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
Congrats! The crawling backwards is actually great, it makes different connections in the brain than crawling forward. Can't remember but it increases the ability to learn in a certain area. How exciting.

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!
Yay!!! While crawling isn't a milestone it must be learned. It helps with reading or something like that. My mom use to teach balance to kindergartners (sp?) and some kids had to learn how to crawl since they didn't do it as babies. Katie just got up on hands and knees today instead of commando crawling-Sadie, do you think they talked and decided today was the day?!

Way to go! Crawling Backwards that is great!

Remind your friends that there is no set in stone agenda when it comes to babies and developments. Trust only your instinct and your Dr.'s feedback. My daughter was about 10 mos when she started to crawl and she was 16 mo when she started walking. She was even a lazy crawler never really got on all fours she would sort of just drag herself around military style.

She is now 8 years old and has been on honor roll since kinder, reading at a 6th grade proficiency level and is at a 7th grade math level she is currently in the 3rd grade. Where are those developmental delays??

O yeah and she started walking on her own one day, we decided we were not gonna push her, figured she would do it when she was good and ready. She also just started going to the potty all on her own just by watching us do it. She just up and walked up to her potty ripped her dippy off and did her biz! She was about 20 mos. So by the time Julian came she was diaper free never had any accidents either!

I agree with Coy's mom and everyone else here for that matter. I think children thrive when you give them independence and give them time to figure things out them selves all with great support and encouragement.

It really is full speed ahead...she'll be walking before you know it, more like running, climbing, jumping o the joys! Enjoy!

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!
Well, so now she qualifies as a genius right? Good for their own time! I know how it is to be in a hurry, trust me!
Check with your
doctor first!
