Renee, mother to Nicholas, born 4/18/08 with silent reflux, moderate laryngomalacia, Sandifer's Syndrome& suspected MSPI. On Neocate, Simply Thick and Prevacid. Also mother to Nathan, born 12/06/06, who had mild reflux the first few months.
Allergy Test Results
Well, Nicholas is allergic to egg whites, milk and dog fennel according to his blood test. Our pedi has referred us to an allergist for more extensive testing. The blood test showed no soy allergy so she has recommended we try the soy as it is much less expensive than the neocate. I wanted to introduce a new solid this week and then we may give it a try. So far he does well with peas and beans-not so hot with carrots. He had his 6 month well visit yesterday and weighed in at a whopping 20lbs 4 oz!!

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.
What a big boy! Those allergies seem manageable, comparably, so that sounds good. Yay Nicholas!

Pictured: G'mom w/3 kids. I'm mom to 1 angel Melissa (dec'd 11/92 - hypoplastic left-heart syn.)
2 healthy daughters (knock wood) Cory (16), Kim (11) & Eric (4) diagnosed with e.e. (scoped 8/08), GERD & severe food/seasonal allergies, asthma. Cried non-stop first 17 mths. of life Found out he is allergic to cow's milk, soy, eggs, and peanuts. Takes Prevacid, Neocate One Plus & Flovent.
I just wanted to warn you to be careful with the soy. Our son tested negative to soy at 17 mths (but positive to milk, eggs, & peanuts). So we gave him soy for a time. Eventually he developed eczema & constipation so we had to switch to Neocate. Later allergy testing showed an allergy to soy. I really think it was from all that soy formula. 40% of kids that are allergic to dairy will also be allergic to soy. Anyway, the weird thing is that we just had more testing (RAST & scratch) & now he comes up negative to soy (we've been avoiding since the middle test). Unfortunately, he's still allergic to egg, milk, & peanut. Ellen

Apparently dog fennel is a weed. I'd never heard of it either.
