alex's mom
Alex was dx with silent reflux at 3 weeks old. Previously on Prevacid SoluTabs 15mg daily, now on trial of no medication. Was thought to have oral aversion, saw feeding specialist who says he's just not interested in food--no aversion at all. Slowly coming around to food. 15 months, 19lbs, 7 oz.
mom2coy...juice flavored milk?
Hello! The pics of your son are adorable. I'm new to this forum so please excuse me for just writing to you directly. I didn't know how else to ask. I'm interested in finding more about your juice flavored milk. Where do you get it? Does it really taste like juice? My son Alex's is at the beginnings of oral aversion (so the docs think). He will take about 8-10 oz of formula (with me on him) and some food (I can't tell if he is picky or just oral aversion). Nonetheless, I am trying to get him to drink whole milk (or any milk) outside of water. I haven't given him juices yet (because the docs wanted him to only have milk) but since I need the extra calories anyway I can get it they have given me the go ahead. However, since I saw your blurb about juice milk, I'd thought I'd give that a try first. Please let me know. I hope Coyle is on his way to getting better. I have a hard time just getting Alex to focus on eating when he is in his highchair. Thanks!

Not sure what kind Coy does but Jedd has reallyliked in the past the CIB juice. It is getting discountined. But, there is Enlive! juice. and Boost Breeze. Thise are both "formulas" that are in juice form. They have loads of nutrition in them. If you google the names you will find more info.

It really is too bad that the CIB juice is being DX. It really ws the better tasting of the 3.

Coyle Eagan. One Year Old. Doing well on Cow's Milk flavored with juice :) Drinking two bottles of Go&Grow daily. Eating solids better but still have rough days. No More Silent Reflux-that I can hear anyway.. but puking again. Zantac 2ML 2X daily.
:) Guess I should be embarrassed to admit this but i flavor his milk with V8 juice (strawberry banana). he just hated the taste of plain milk and when i splashed a little juice in there he drank it all up.

We've had issues with dairy and soy and still the only thing he pukes up are his bottles (go & grow milk based by similac) and his juice-milk. he drank alimentum for 6 months and did not do soilds for awhile either because he vomited everything-even his alimentum as well, really!
Check with your
doctor first!
