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.
cleaning floors OT
Hi everyone.... I was wondering how you all clean your kitchen floors? We have vynal flooring in the kitchen.

I use swifter wet jet..... but i am just concerned about icky bacteria now that Joslyn is crawling. We do not keep our shoes on in the house anymore....... We are freaks!

What do you all do?

Thanks

Jacky

I use the Norwex mop to clean our floors. It is microfiber and kills more germs than using bleach and water. I just like that it is chemical free. Trying to go green. ;)

I just love all their products! Can't tell you how many I have. :)

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Oh! are you supposed to clean floors? I'll have to try that.

Seriously, I'm not very good at it. I do it when I can. I was better while she was crawling. I use lysol floor cleaner on mine.

Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
Right now I just use vinegar and lemon juice. Vinegar as disinfectant Floor cleaner: It is safe on your no wax vinyl, wood and tile floors. It removes dirt and build-up while leaving the floor looking clean and shiny. Add a cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water and mop up those dirty, messy floors with ease. You can also use it in the spray mops for quick clean-ups.

I also use a spray bottle half full vinegar, 3 drops dishwashing liquid rest water to clean and disinfect countertops.

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.
My kid pukes all over my horrible linoleoum daily, so I swiffer wet daily. and it gets a good moppping every other week (by the housekeeper NOT me)...so far no reactions to anything, but the idea that he is crawling around on old pukey floor used to get to me, but I'm kinda too tired to worry about it much anymore! How sad is that??

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
I agree with you. I am too tired to worry about mopping all the time. We have carpet that needs replaced and we always thought we would put in hardwood but we have decided to sell and move so we are going to put some carpet in to get it sold and be done.

no one wants to buy a house with puke stains all over the carpet. Especially in our neighborhood. I swear if our neighbors saw the house right now we would be reported to the hoa. :)
