Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
I am posting because I am feeling so depressed. I let Katie's reflux get too out of control. By the time we needed to take action it was 5 months before we got answers. Mostly I let people think I was crazy. THat she was "just fine". I am so mad at myself for putting her through all of this.

now we know she has damage and it makes me so sad.

such a lesson for us moms. Nobody knows our kids like we do and we have to protect them.
