Jedd just puked and I caught almost all of it in my cup I use for my Slim Fast shake every morning.....

It was either that or the carpet.....

At least now I know exactly how much he pukes when he pukes...it was just over 4 oz of fluid....(the cup had measure ment markers on it.)

This is soo gross!!!!!

Oh and yes, I had just finished my shake....

Renee, mother to Nicholas, born 4/18/08 with silent reflux, moderate laryngomalacia, Sandifer's Syndrome& suspected MSPI. On Neocate, Simply Thick and Prevacid. Also mother to Nathan, born 12/06/06, who had mild reflux the first few months.
Nice to have measurements right on the puke cup!!! It is amazing what we do once we're parents. I've caught, picked up, etc, all kinds of things that come out of my boys orifices that would have totally grossed me out before, but now, it's just another day!! At least you got to finish the shake!!!

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 impressed that you were able to catch it all in the cup!!!

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.
swwet! you know how much he puked!!! UP SIDE! hehe

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.... :(
That is incredibly handy. If only I had had one of those cups when Sebastian was puking his full bottles at night. It would have been easier than saying "No, it was bigger than that...like a 16-inch pizza" or "Yes, maybe just the size of a grapefruit."

I will never forget Morgan's second Christmas. It was Christmas Eve and Morgan gets car sick and vomits very easy. She had an ear infection on top of it and my brother was swinging her around. I kept telling me to watch out because she just ate. She was in the middle of my aunts dining room and family room, just got new hardwood in the dining but carpet in the family room. My stepdad and uncle caught the puke with their plates! Yum! It was sad. Not only that but my stepdad doesn't have kids so this isn't normally a reflex action from him. I think he was just worried about the new carpet!

I love the fact that you could measure the puke. They always ask if we know about how much they are vomiting. Well, you have an answer! GO you!

I picked my son's nose and wiped it on my tee-shirt the other day. Can anyone believe I did that? I can't, lol. He couldn't breath and I didn't have access to a tissue, etc. So it went on the bottom of my tee. Too gross!

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!
You're a professional puke catcher! Somehow I've almost always dodged the puke. Dh always gets it. :)

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.
I'm sorry he puked. :( Maybe he just felt your pain about drinking those Slim Fast shakes. ;)
Check with your
doctor first!
