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.

Off to California
If you would please keep Ethan and I, and my mom in your prayers. We are flying to California tomorrow, to visit, and to go with my mom to a doctors appointment, where she could be diagnosed with cancer of the pituitary gland. On the one hand we are looking forward to the visit, but on the other hand . . .

In addition, we will have several 3+ hour car rides, so we are hoping that Ethan will be in a good place. We are traveling with my 1.5 year old niece, so we are likely to make a lot of stops, between the two kids, but oh well.

I'm not sure that we will have internet access very often, so if you don't hear from me, that is why. We'll be back next Tuesday, the 28th.

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
We will definitely keep you all in our prayers. I hope your mom is fine. Do you have a portable DVD player? We've found it's a lifesaver on long car trips.

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.
I live in Michigan and traveled to Wisconsin this past summer. We had to make a connection so all and all we had four enplanings and deplanings, takeoff and landings, etc. etc... coyle slept the ENTIRE time!!! It was a major, major blessing.. considering this is the son who never sleeps. He barely vomited or refluxed either... so, i know that ethan will do great!!and just think how much easier it is to travel when BF.. it was a HUGE pain with a formula fed baby.. wishing you a wonderful trip. I have tons of family in California and we are thinking of going next spring..

your mom is in my prayers.

Thanks for the well wishes and prayers. We are almost all packed, and ready to go in the AM.
Check with your
doctor first!
