Amalia and Atalia update and question
This is very quick because Amalia is currently on my lap very cranky and crying on and off due to teething =). I've had to increase Amalia's prevacid dose to 30 mg =(. These molars are really upsetting her reflux. Sometimes she has these coughing fits during meals that do not let her eat. One time she was on top of me just trying not to vomit the milk she had just drank. And with all the drool she coughs and gets a runny nose just like before... My question is, those of you whose children have had reflux this long- and always seemed to eb worse during teething-does it improve after teething is all done and over with?. It's only this bad when she is teething...we were even able to wean her to 15 mg one time when she was not teething ( 2 1/2 more molars to go..). Atalia had a BAD relapse last week- I was up all night with her, HORRIBLE reflux. Seems back to normal now. Teething related- all the drool gets her a runny nose like her sister, and the coughing , etc.... God Bless all of you. I hope they figure out Audrey's constipation. I hope Aubrey is better. And Danie's mom. Lorenzo mama- I hope little lorenzo is well. Blueleopard- I think of your little one- hope they figure your stomach out. Gotta go. And everyone- in my thoughts.

Tried and failed many med weans but GERD and pain are well controlled. Functional constipation. Reoccurring SBBO. Suspected IBD or autoimmune disease. Resolved issues: MSPI, CSID (acquired), Stage 2 kidney reflux, Chronic diarrhea.
Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
have you tried carafate with her? we did that for emily's reflux when her molars were coming in and it really seemed to help. with emily, while her teeth were coming in her reflux was really bad, then after they came in her reflux comes and goes in intensity but still there, we just got her up to 30mg prevacid too so that helped out a lot. i pray her teeth come through soon so you can get some rest! I am so sorry little atalia has reflux pains too, i hope she has an easier time teething then poor amelia! Thank you for thinking of audrey :)

Mom to Eddie 1/07 and Nicholas 6/08. Eddie allergic and refluxer now on cow's milk!!!! Nicholas also a refluxer on prevacid and breast milk. Mom on elimination diet AGAIN!!
Hi I've missed you I am gld to see you are all doing well (relatively) Teething hing I think also kep Eddie up at night, nexium has really helped maybe a med change?? Once the 30mg of prevacid stoppped working my GI switchedhim to nexium which has been great. He is on 20 mg at night with no issues, he even drinks juice and eats pretty much whatever he wants as long as it is not dairy.Eddie still has allergy issues, since he has been dairy free for the last 2 months no more illnesses and restful sleep. :O)E

Thank you sooo much for your input. I started noticing a productive cough last night and today I took Amalia to the pedi. She's running low grade fevers so it looks like she has a cold- which in a way I'm glad because it explains more why her reflux is so bad. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. God Bless.

I forgot to say that if Amalia's reflux still flares up like this after all the teething is done, I will consider switching meds (thanks lanymama). I am praying after teething she starts outgrowing it. CArafate did not work for Atalia but who knows it might help Amalia.
Check with your
doctor first!
