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!
Mags used to be that way, but not quite as much any more. We do have to fight her off from time to time. We use a lot of distraction and "go get...." type tactics. Hey, ya know what Mags loves now? Sticker books. Maybe she'd do that while you're doing something else.

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.
man...... I can see it now... you carrying 2 LOs! Joslyn loves to be held... but she is only 6 months. I am no help there. But 5 months to go!!!! Good for you!

I have 3 boys, youngest has gerd, 18 months of no sleep. Prevacid 2x/7.5 mg thinking of switching to prilosec.
Hi! Bless you mama and your children! I know about pain with carrying around children and when the pain gets too much I see my rheumatologist who gives me a cortizone shot and tells me to "put the child down!" It's much easier said than done when you have a strong willed child! Do you have a moby child carrier? That I found to be easiest on my joints.

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.

I feel for you. Ethan is the same way, though younger, so probably easier to deal with.

Jazz won't use a carrier...go figure!! At least her being so small benefits us in some way!!! Melissa, Jazzy loves stickers too, I think it's just that she feels crappy so much that she wants to be held...KWIM? I am hoping this med will work and she'll want to be free of mom a bit more...... I'm sure I'll be kicking myself for saying that soon!!!

I hope she asserts(sp?) her independance soon.

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.... :(
Sebastian is like this, and he is HEAVY. (27 pounds). Well, not always like this....he actually fights to get down, then runs away for two seconds, and then runs back, wanting to be picked up. Repeat, repeat, repeat. All the bending over is killing my back.If you come up with anything, let me know! I cannot believe your new LO will behere in five months!!

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.
Nicholas does seem to want to be held a lot. I think a lot of it stems from being in pain (a lot in the beginning and I'm sure some now). He had to be in a carrier all day for the first couple months. I try to get him used to being not held as much as possible and overall, he is getting better. Good luck. Having two feels (at least to us) like having four!!! It was a shocking transition from one. Hopefully, your second will be an easy baby!!!

Gotcha! Mags didn't get off my leg till she started daycare on a regular basis. Is there any possibility of doing something with her? Heck-if you can't afford it, (like me) get a job in a center. I started out just subbing. Now I've made a "career" out of it. Just an idea.
Check with your
doctor first!
