I Give Up - Back On Prevacid
My youngest son, 15 months old today, is going back on Prevacid. I thought he was reflux free. DH thought he was reflux free. His doctors thought he was reflux free. It's been a nice 2 months since we weaned. Suddenly I am realizing some things I am seeing are reflux. Then, Saturday, he refluxed on the floor! And, today, he was drinking his bottle just as I dressed him, and he refluxed all over, and I do mean all over, his outfit. He had that "lovely" stuck down hair from where it got on his head. He has that all too familiar smell now because I didn't have time to give him a bath since we were headed to his physical therapy appointment. This makes both boys on Prevacid. DS #1 is on it because of damage his reflux (we didn't know he had it, his GI found that) was causing his esophagus. So, I guess I am back full time, both boys, with my head reeling over all of this.

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.
Sorry he isn't over it yet. THere is always hope for next time.

I keep saying baby vomit is a new fashion statement- I know I wear it all the time.

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
