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.
just got out of the hospital
Zack got ill on Friday night...flu...but it got steadily worse and worse and he was expelling SO much out of both ends that he couldn't stay hydrated. Sunday afternoon he went ot the ER adn he was admitted then transferred to a hospital witha pediatric unit. We were there for two days on IV fluids and he's doing much better. He actually hasn't thrown up since's pretty weird since he's a total to get that pound back on him!!!!

I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
oh my gosh!!!! that is my fear with joslyn!

i hope he is feeling better...... sad picture....but that second one is wonderful

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.
Poor Zack, and poor mommy. I'm glad he is feeling better. The pound will be back in no time, especially if he isn't puking!

alex's mom
Alex was dx with silent reflux at 3 weeks old. Previously on Prevacid SoluTabs 15mg daily, now on trial of no medication. Was thought to have oral aversion, saw feeding specialist who says he's just not interested in food--no aversion at all. Slowly coming around to food. 15 months, 19lbs, 7 oz.
I was just thinking about you guys. Sorry to hear about the admission, but glad they were able to hydrate him and get him well. He is a total cutie! Love his blue eyes! Hope everything continues to go well for your lil' man!

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.
Poor little guy. So sorry that you had to go through that. Hope he feels better soon. Those eyes are amazing!
