My time has come...
to leave Pager. I am eternally grateful to all of you. I found you at the lowest point in my life. I was desperate for help for my inconsolable child. To find this site and have people say this is also happening or happened to me was just what I needed to hear. I had isolated myself from family and friends because they just didn't understand. They were telling me reflux is no big deal just feed him less or give him his meds he should be fine. So and so's child had reflux and now they are fine. I'm sure you have all heard it too. I was feeling like a failure and daily sympathizing with child abusers because there were times I could understand why they did it. It was such a Godsend to find you all and talk to people who have "been there". And to turn to a group of parents who didn't judge me and tell me I was crazy was amazing. I'm happy to say that I think our reflux journey is almost over. We have bonded over poop, puke, and the need to feel like our feelings were alright. You helped me find a voice to speak up to doctors and really be in tune with my child.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I will continue to peek in from time to time to check on you all. I wish only the best for you and that your los get well soon. You will always have a special place in my heart. Lots of Love, Amber F

My email is if you wish to email me anytime.

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.
we wish you the very best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
I am so happy for you. Where would we all be without this site. I wish you the best and a reflux free future.

This site is my security blanket. I wonder if there will be a time that I am O.K. without it.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
