After 27 1/2 months of age- finally uninterrupted sleep...
Amalia is officially done teething- I can not believe it. This last molar took almost 2 months to completely come out. But the last two days have been glorious. She goes to bed @ 8:00pm, wakes up @ ~ 6:15 am- no whining,, complaining or waking up at night. In the day she has been sleeping 2 hr 15 minutes- 2 1/2 hrs. Waking up HAPPY- PRAISE GOD- no more walking after mommy with her teddy and blanket, screaming with tears flowing from her eyes "sleep, sleep!!" and mommy not being able to put her back to sleep because she has to feed the baby, etc... Or her just wanting mommy to hold her for a long time after she naps- which was much easier prior to the baby. She got sick about three weeks ago and for the first time ever- it was a NORMAL COLD- burgers and a stuffy nose- with none of the other horrible constant silent refluxing and vomiting. I know it's only been a few days, but I am hoping in God that things have finally settled down for my little Amalia. I'm going to give her 3 weeks or so and God willing, will try to wean back down to 15 mg. Atalia weighs 16.13 ounces and measures 26 1/2 in. Last time she got sick she got an ear infection and everything but no reflux flare up either- PRAISE GOD! She has been crawling all over the house for a month and is already cruising on furniture. She does have some real bad nights with teething, but many more good nights than Amalia did at this age- PRAISE GOD! If you have read this far- and are having a real hard time- hang in there and most importantly rely and lean on God. I would not have been able to make it this far if it was not for my Jesus, family and you ladies here! I really hope Meggy got to go tot he allergist and they found out what's upsetting her and she is doing much better. Blueleopard- I hope things are also more under control for Eric. Quinnie- hope you got more answers..If I keep writing it'll be too long- just know I think and pray for your little ones often. I'll update again some time. God bless

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.
Hurray for sleep!!!!

Pictured: G'mom w/3 kids. I'm mom to 1 angel Melissa (dec'd 11/92 - hypoplastic left-heart syn.)
2 healthy daughters (knock wood) Cory (16), Kim (11) & Eric (4) diagnosed with e.e. (scoped 8/08), GERD & severe food/seasonal allergies, asthma. Cried non-stop first 17 mths. of life Found out he is allergic to cow's milk, soy, eggs, and peanuts. Takes Prevacid, Neocate One Plus & Flovent.
Mely - just wanted to say "hi" & I'm glad things are getting so much better for you and that you are getting some much needed rest. Eric, unforturnately, continues to have many complicated medical problems & contant suffering. I wouldn't wish e.e. & all it's related issues on my worst enemy. He has another scope scheduled for Wed. If you could say a prayer that the level of eos. in his esophagus has been greatly reduced, I would appreciate it! All the best to you & your darling girls. El

Lorenzomama- How is your little one doing? Was he ever dx with sleep apnea, and if so, was it due to reflux? I hope he is doing better. Blueleopard- so sorry to hear about Eric. Amalia is now back to her eating all textures without issues and I remember Eris and his e.e.- I will pray for the scope on Wednesday and for healing from above. May God really continue to sustain all of you and me in this journey. My heartfelt prayers for all.
