Brava!!!
You did a great job and the answers that Dr. Sears gave were very good. You guys probably helped a lot of families today. You should be very proud! We really appreciate you being willing to spend a whole to help other parents of babies with reflux! You are awesome, girl.

So have any agents called offering to represent you? (smile)

OMGosh, they could have done sooooo much more!!!!!! Really, that was it.... I'm sad. Kids seriously suffer in much pain....it just seems like he said the same thing over and over and over and didn't really cover anything. ;-(

You did great though, and you look fabulous!!!!!!

I think we should all take some time to e-mail them our reflux story. Maybe if they get enough we can work on them doing an entire episode on acid reflux in infants. :)

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
At least you looked smokin! : )
Check with your
doctor first!
