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.
how can I fix something I dont understand
So Z has been on Reglan and Erythro and now he's on nothing waiting to start a new med...he's been puking up a storm...6 or 7 times a day...LARGE volume...I usually let him throw up the first bottle and refeed with a new one...it's getting tiresome making two bottles at a time just to eatch one get "wasted"...so yesterday he doesn't throw up at all..he's on no meds? what the heck...what was so special about yesterday and how can I recreate it? He threw up this morning as usual, so we'll see how he does at daycare today...but seriously..there is no rhyme or reason to this kid!

did you do something different? different water, wash the bottles a diff way? was he in a diff place or position while eating? was the temp of the milk different? Who knows! i was just throwing things out there but likely there is no rhyme or reason... emily would do the same thing, she would be okay for a couple weeks at a time then bam start all over again. I really hope he does better today, how do the day care people feel about him puking? i remember when i wanted to put emi in day care all the ones around me said no way.

it's a small church daycare...they have a few special needs kids...Z's only special need is a bucket to puke into, but they are game for handling it....actually they are great with him...once they got over the fact that puking did not mean he was sick...He was at the daycare for a few months before the puking started, but they have always been great with him.

Mom to Jasmine aka: Jazz 01/24/2007
Dx with silent reflux at 8 months
FPIES, DGE, MSPI. Recently diagnosed with EC (Eosin. colitis and now Primary immune deficiency disease.
Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
What about the size of his feeds? Jazzy is a silent AR and sometimes could take 6-8 oz and then the next day she could only handle 3-4 oz?? But maybe like you said, there maybe no rhyme or reason!!
Check with your
doctor first!
