sharlin, mom to aviah, smith and faye (4/08)-dx with acid reflux (mostly silent) at 6 months.
Looking back I suspect she's been dealing with this for most of her little life. She's tried about every formula in the book and is currently on liquid alimentum, which has really helped a lot with her fighting feedings. We also tried zantac, but she became MUCH worse, and so we've been trying to work on helping her through her diet. she's also taking probiotics, and i'm hoping to get her eating some solids more regularly.
yogurt
anyone have any thoughts on this? especially goat's milk yogurt? my dd has issues with cow's milk protein (gi, not anaphalactic) but i've heard that yogurt is often tolerated due to teh fermentation. i've also heard of yogurt helping adult acid reflux, and so i'm wondering if it would be a helpful food. anyone with experience? i'm seriously trying to find her something that will be gentle for her little system that she'll want to eat. :(

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!
I'd ask the ped. She's not old enough for yogurt if I'm remembering right. Also, a friend here told us that goat's milk is very similar to cow's milk. Many (but not all) that have issues with cow's milk, will have issues with goat's milk too.

Abby can't tolerate cow's milk but can tolerate goat's milk. So there is hope that she would do okay on it. Like Melissa said, I would ask your pedi.

My dd tolerated the goat's milk yogurt fine.

for those of you who have had luck with goat's milk and goat's milk yogurt, would you mind telling me when you tried it? thanks!

Lorenzo b.4/25/07 1 week in NICU w/ aspirate pneumonia from a reflux episode; diagnosed GERD at 9weeks; Used Zantac for 5months. Currently using Chinese Medicine and Craniosacral Therapy. GERD, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Sensory Processing Disorder. Ask me about breastfeeding a refluxer! Pic: day 5 in the NICU.
I started my son on goat's milk yogurt at about 14 months. He couldn't handle cow's milk yogurt at all. So far, the goat's milk yogurt has been great. We use the plain, as it has no sweeteners or other ingredients. For liquid milk we use almond milk, again, using only the unsweetened variety.
Check with your
doctor first!
