Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
Halloween Anniversary
Today is the day Z came home from the NICU last year. I'm a little sad today...I wish I could have stayed home with him and squeezed him extra today. (but not enough to make him puke) :)

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.
Hugs to you both today!

I felt a little morose on that day too, just from all the memories and the fact that her troubles were not even close to over when she was d/ced. But, we had a "NICU grad" party to celebrate, and plan to for at least a few years. her bday is in May and we will have a party here, and her grad date is in July and we will have a NICU grad party with DH's family where they live because we go there every summer.

Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
The last line made me laugh! He's a strong little guy to come home at 35 weeks! I know it's been a hard's to hoping for an easier year 2.
Check with your
