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.
Heads Up
There is a great magazine called "One Step Ahead" and they now have these special things that you put under each of the crib legs that help elevate the bed for reflux, colds, whatever. You can use more or less of them to elevate it to the level you want. I just thought I'd pass that along to everyone. You can look them up online. I get a their magazine monthly and I love the toys and innovative stuff they have. ;)

I wish I knew about this about 11 months ago. Sounds like something to look into when our journey was beginning.

Adriane Reese 05/16/07; seemingly healthy when born; diagnosed with MSPI, severe Reflux, Apnea, Ashtma, Epilepsy, and severe food allergies(rice, corn, milk, soy, eggs, oats, wheat, beef, chicken, squash, pumpkin, avocado, etc.);On apnea monitor, seems to be tolerating RCF w/carbohydrate mixed in; on Zyrtec, Xopenex, Prevacid
I actually got the magazine last week and just had time to check it out yesterday. I saw those and thought about it too. I thought it would have been nice to have a year ago. I still might get some for both of the girls' beds then I wouldn't have to use all the pillows under the matresses.

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!
I just got the magazine too!!!! They have some really neat stuff and I am getting the Nativity set since my favorite holiday memory was playing with the it every Christmas.
