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.
|Yay for good visits. Nice job with standing your ground on the tube, until you are comfortable. |

|Jessica, I love reading all of the GREAT updates lately!!! I know how thrilled you must be to see little man gaining so much. I'm hoping and praying Rory hits 20lbs at our next appt. Just seeing her gain the last month has been so thrilling, so I know how good you must feel. We started Rory on CIB milk, with breakfast and supper. She likes it, but because it's flavored, she won't touch regular milk (except at daycare where they SAY she drinks it, but I have my doubts cause she spits it out when I try to give it to her). Anyway, I just hope that Jedd cooperates with you on the 2% milk, because going from yummy choco, vanilla, strawberry to plain ole milk might not fly right away, lol. I'm kicking myself in the butt for not doing milk first, then the CIB, cause fussy-face Rory knows what she likes. Anyway, I'm just happy she's drinking the CIB milk, because I worry less about the formula wean. It must be scary to try cutting all the cream and hi-cal stuff. I think he'll do great though...and he has some weight to work with now, after all your hard work. You guys are always in my thoughts. I've said it before, but you've been a source of hope, insight, and inspiration to me, and I wouldn't have made it through this past year without you. HUGSSSSS!!!|

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.
