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 use stain stick

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.
we haven't had ANY luck with the Elecare Duocal stain combo...I think it's the leaves a grease stain on EVERYTHING...All my jeans have these dark stains...all Zack's clothes have them yellow stain least there's that!

We use both oxiclean and spray and wash. I spray it down with spray and wash and put some oxiclean in the load and that works. If it is on a white part of something, i will use a bleach pen.

ethan's mom
Mom to Ethan, born 4/23/08. Diagnosed with Reflux at about 1 month, started medicating with Zantac, which wasn't helpful for us. At about 2.5 months, we started on Prevacid, twice a day, and that is working much better.
Ethan is breastfed and has a few solids that he is enjoying very much.
I haven't seen it around in a while, but for oily stains, there is/was a shampoo from Nexxus called ExOil, which worked great.
Check with your
doctor first!
