I wanted to make sure you saw this so I put it here too. (to wean or not to wean) I missed this earlier but I wanted to tell you that I have so been there. But I found it helpful to at least try. If it doesn't work then it doesn't take anytime to get them back on track again. The first med wean I did I cut out a 1/4 solutab in the am with in a week he had wet burps and bad breath. I went right back to his full dose and in a day he was back to his old self. I also found that it was so helpful to be able to go back to the doc at his 9 mon. check with the info that I at least tried it. That way she was very willing to renew the RX. You will never know if she is ready until you try it. That is great news about the milk and cinnamon. And if it doesn't work you wait a little while and try again. Look at Nolan he is down a 1/2 soloutab and in a week or so I'm cutting down more. It is scarey but you don't want her on meds she doesn't need right? JMHO.

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.
Yeah the other day I let her go almost all day w/out the Prevacid. By the afternoon she was having hiccups, wet burps and getting fussy. :( So I think I may try to like go down to half her usual dose or something soon. She is tolerating juices, chocolate (now we don't give that to her too much-haha) and cinnamon. All of those I can rarely (even WITH reflux meds) eat because of MY reflux so I thought geez what's she on the Prevacid for?!?

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
Just a thought - if she's on a split dose, I would start reducing the morning dose before I messed with the evening dose. It's hard enough to get these kids to sleep...
Check with your
doctor first!
