Adriane Reese 05/16/07; seemingly healthy when born; diagnosed with MSPI, severe Reflux, Apnea, Ashtma, Epilepsy, and severe food allergies(rice, corn, milk, soy, eggs, oats, wheat, beef, chicken, squash, pumpkin, avocado, etc.);On apnea monitor, seems to be tolerating RCF w/carbohydrate mixed in; on Zyrtec, Xopenex, Prevacid
Did you give the belly any rest time between formulas? I know that is hard. You can do fluids like water or something. Talk to the doc about it if this seems to not work. Our dd had the same issue. We got so bad she ended up in the hospital dehydrated. She couldn't keep anything down. We had to let her belly rest for a day or two, might have been more. it is all such a blur. The problem was that her belly was so torn up from the other formulas that she couldn't keep anything down. You will need to talk to the doc about it if it looks like that isn't working. That is just what our experiences are with the formulas. It would work for a week or so and then she would get worse. I hope this helps you some. -Amanda

Andrea: Mom to 3 crazy girls!
Jackie (3/01)
Payton (9/03)
Abby (4/06) Prevacid 7.5mg (evening), MSPI, goats milk (currently trying to wean off Prevacid)
If she is doing worse on the Neocate then I would talk to the dr. But if you do see improvement I would give it a month before calling it quits.

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
You may want to see if the doctor can prescribe Carafate for her (it's like "super" Mylanta). That would coat her esophagus and allow it time to heal.
Check with your
doctor first!
