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.

Great news! I just read your update.. we must have been typing the same time. Glad he is where he should be developmental wise. The food thing will be fixed too!!!

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.
Thanks...it's really hard seeing your son evaluated, but hopefully it will help him get the help he needs...seriously...I feel like there's a little light switch in him that someone needs to flick...I guess learning that food won't always hurt is a good start...not puking up everything HAS to help with that, right? How's your little cutie-pie??

she is doing well. She is growing... we just dont know to what extent yet. Still no teefers... though they are ALL under the skin, cause we can see every single one! Poor thing. she is handling it well. Has not needed Tylenol for about a week now.

Luckily Joslyn has not connected solid food with pain or even a bottle with pain. She only seemed to have her pain while nursing. And even that has subsided! She no longer has the horrific nursing sessions she had a month ago. We can prob stop the zantac... but I am too nervous! I think we will do the 2 doses for another month and then try to go down to 1. I DO NOT want her to go back to the screaming and arching!

we will be praying for that switch to be flicked!!!!! hehe

Check with your
doctor first!
