This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
|It really is trial and error with many of these kids. It seems that there are a few things that are a little easier on their tummies to start, such as pears, sweet potatoes, and squash. |
Has your dd had any other testing done yet? Is she MSPI? Is there any history of food allergies/intolerances in the family? Is the pooping normal?
What kind of formula and how much formula is she taking per day? I believe that the amount recommended is 26-32 oz/pay. Is she on any meds besides reglan?

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.
|Here are a couple of things we have tried that are working for us. Hopefully there is something here that will help Myra. |
Ethan would immediately vomit any of the store bought rice cereals, and I couldn't get him to eat Oat cereal. I had read that once they are six months, they can eat homeade cereals, which are from whole grains and less processed. I grind up oats, or brown rice, to a flour like consistency in the blender, and then cook it in boiling water on the stove. The ratio is one cup of water to 1/4 cup of grains, and this will make enough cereal for a couple of days. If it gets too lumpy, I puree it in the blender.
As was said before, we have had success with pears, sweet potatoes and squash, as well as avocado. I make all of the baby food, which is super easy, but we did have success with store bought pears.
It really is trial and error, but these have worked for us. Also, I'd ask your doctor about preparing your own cereals, becuase the store bought are iron fortified.
