Nolan's 12 month Check
Hi all! I've been out of town all weekend and missed you all soooo much:) I thought I'd quick send an update of Nolan's doc appt on Friday. He is huge!!!! Well no shock there:) He is 28lbs 4 oz. And is 31 3/4 inches tall. We saw a different doc because mine is on maternity leave but they are pleased that I could cut out his evening dose of meds. She said wait a month and then give him is am dose every other day for about a month and then cut it out completely. Could we actually be off meds by his next appt? All in all is was a short appt and he got 3 shots:) He had NO reaction so that was good because we had family pics taken Sat. am. I will post some when I get the proofs cd. I hope everyone else is doing good.

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
So glad things are going well with the wean. Yay!

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.
I'm glad that weaning of the meds is going so well, and that you guys had a good weekend.

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!
Yay for being big and yay for a possible mean wean!!!

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.
Glad to hear the visit went well! I hope the med wean goes well soon too!:)
Check with your
doctor first!
