Guess what???? I'm so shocked!!!!!! Cody went to bed at 7pm last night and didn't even make a peep until 6AM this morning!!!!!!! He has never, NEVER even come close to sleeping completely through the night. I got so much sleep, I don't even know what to do with myself today. We started him on a med Friday night and didn't seem to make a difference saturday at all, but last night, he did it! I'm really hoping this lasts and that it wasn't a fluke! haha I also feel really bad, because if it is the med that is helping, I should have figured this out a long time ago! I feel so bad that for the last 11 months, he hasn't slept well/possibly been in pain and I had no idea. :( But his reflux symptoms are so minor that it never really crossed my mind. I'm just happy we may have given him some relief now! Thanks for all the help out there!! =)

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.
knock on wood. don't feel bad about the time missed - we have ALL been there. celebrate this wonderful accomplishment :)
