Anyone have any luck with you get the same result from cereal? I'm interested in trying it, but I can't find samples anywhere...

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
Call the GIs office and see if they have any. We never really used it but I did get a couple of samples form early interventin for Jedd to use.

I think the Thick It is better than the other stuff form what I've heard. IT doens't have the side affects that cereals do.

I think you can order it online of through your local pharamcy. It's considered a medical food so not sure if you neeed an RX for it or not.

Good luck.

Mom to Jasmine aka: Jazz 01/24/2007
Dx with silent reflux at 8 months
FPIES, DGE, MSPI. Recently diagnosed with EC (Eosin. colitis and now Primary immune deficiency disease.
Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
I agree with the pp. Thick it is a safer choice. We are able to get it at the pharmacy, OTC, so hopefully you won't have any problems getting it. GOOD LUCK!

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.
We use the Simply Thick and love it. Much better results than the cereal. I liked that it was not corn based and that it had no calories as we didn't need that. I can't get it OTC around where we are so I order it online.

We tried it and didn't like it nearly as much as Simply Thick. Thick It has calories as well, not a lot, but we didn't need the extra calories. I am not sure if it was the ingredients that messed with him or what. But it not only didn't work nearly as well as Simply Thick but it also bothered his tummy.

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.
We could not use thick it b/c Aubrey was MSPI. We did use the Simply Thick and loved it. I would check w/ your doc about using it since I see he is on Elecare.

Bryson (3/06), former Neocate, Nexium, and Reglan baby. Diagnosed with peanut allergy and asthma. Weaned from meds in Spring 0f 08. Brother, Parker (6/04), was also on Prevacid and Pregestimil (formula) as an infant.
We tried Thick It but did not like it as well. Our son's Neocate was covered by insurance and it was shipped to us from Apria Healthcare. Our GI doctor got us a prescription for Simply Thick sent to Apria and it was covered by insurance. It only cost us $6.00 for a box of individual packets that lasted about a month. Can't beat that! I am not sure if you get your Elecare from Apria or not. If you do, you may want to look into having Simply Thick delivered as well. amanda
