ethan's mom
Mom to Ethan, born 4/23/08. Diagnosed with Reflux at about 1 month, started medicating with Zantac, which wasn't helpful for us. At about 2.5 months, we started on Prevacid, twice a day, and that is working much better.
Ethan is breastfed and has a few solids that he is enjoying very much.
We're Back
Hey everyone, Ethan and I got back from California last night! Everything is okay with my mom, I think. (long story, won't burden anyone)

Ethan did so well while we were gone that I'm sure that they think I have Munchhausen syndrome or something. He only had one pukey day, and my mom, in her wisdom thought she would be helping and gave him water with Karo syrup in it, and he puked five more times! I normally go to breastmilk only when it appears that we are having a pukey day, and then he does better, and we go back to foods and juices the next day. Oh well.

I'm trying to catch up on the posts from while I was gone, but Ethan seems to be so much more mobile than when we left, I may not get to. He is scooting and rolling all over the floor, finding things to get into, whereas before, he rolled around in a 3'x3' area. Time for the baby gates!

We also had success with his constipation while we were gone. I couldn't find my normal juice there, so I bought him the Kern's pear canned juice, which is 30% juice and the rest high fructose corn syrup, and it seemed to work. I hate that it did, as I was hoping to keep him on a "whole foods" sort of diet for as long as I could. Oh well, it certainly beats suppositories every other day.

I think I have rambled enough, and Ethan is about to tear up his dads MP3 player.

hey welcome back! I forgot you were gone... I was thinking something was wrong.

Ethan is moving around!!! I am jealous! Joslyn is not doing that yet.. but she is thrusting herself forward and sitting up from a laying down position.

glad you are back and safe!

Glad to hear that things are okay with your mom. So, glad that you had a good visit. Get some good use out of the baby gates before he starts walking and climbing. He will be climbing over them before you know it!
Check with your
doctor first!
