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.

Did anyone else see this? --OT
So I was watching the Today show, and they had a high wire record that someone was breaking. He had to walk across about 200 feet, at 15+ stories high, no net, then ride a bicycle back.

I was completely nervous, palms sweating, heart racing . . . I've always told Ethan that he can be anything he wants to be, but I told him that he isn't allowed to do that, ever. lol I hope that doesn't limit him too much.

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.... :(
Didn't see it, but I am limiting Sebastian's careers, too. He can be anything he wants except for a police officer, a firefighter, a member of the military, or a stuntman. Now, those are all NOBLE professions that I respect very much- but they are dangerous and I am WAY TOO SCARED. Now I will have to add tightrope walker to the list.

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including engi.nowaira.net, engi@nowaira.net, Engi@nowaira.us, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
The thing is I can literally picture Meggy trying that one in my head. I can also see the look of horror on my face. LOL

Amber,

I love that pic. on your profile. The hair is just awesome and that smile. :D

I hadn't thought of those other jobs yet. I am with you on the police, fire, military deals. A nice safe desk job sounds perfect.

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.
Nothing seems safe enough anymore. Too many nuts out there. I just want to bubble wrap my kids with inpenitrable (sp?) bubble wrap. But, in the words of Dori from Nemo "not much fun for little Harpo".
Check with your
doctor first!
