Sneaking in veggies
Not sure this has been posted before or not, but someone told me today that she puts 1/4 to 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pie mix) into her pancake batter. She also mixes a little carrot juice into her dd's mac n cheese (it's the same color so she doesn't notice). Just thought I'd share!

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!

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!
Good idea! I plan on using pureed carrots for Katie's "spaghetti sauce" once she can have some. It looks the same and is more reflux friendly.

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
We've also had luck sneaking in broccoli diced very finely into cheesy rice. Halley LOOOOVES pumpkin pancakes (as does her mama) - if you add a little bit of pumpkin spice, they are really yummy. One word of advice with the pumpkin - they make the pancakes a little denser, so it takes slightly more time for the center to cook through.
Check with your
doctor first!
