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.

ethan's mom
Meridith, mom to Ethan born 4/23/08. Ethan was diagnosed with reflux at about 1 month. He has been on Zantac (unsuccessful) and Prevacid. He is currently taking 7.5 mg of Prevacid 2x per day, with good results. We also suspect MPI, though this hasn't been confirmed by a doctor yet.
Ethan is mostly breastfed, though we are doing one bottle of soy formula each day. We also do some homeade "solids' including, so far pears, avocado, sweet potato, and peaches.

Thank you. I didn't get to post it the other day, but I liked the pic of Joslyn with the fall leaves.

I was also going to post a message to you about making baby food. I don't know if you already have a plan, but you can probably save some money by not getting a food mill, if you already have a blender, food processor, etc. We use a Magic Bullet, and it works out pretty well. In terms of food, I think that the least expensive thing that we have tried has been Sweet potato, and Ethan really likes it. He also really likes pears, which I bake until they are soft, then puree.

He loves them and having a baby will only give us an excuse to eta mor of them! hehe. Thanks for the pears idea! I did not think to bake them first.... I plan on getting some soon and I will bake them first.. .good way to make the house smell yummy!
