Buffer Babies and fruit?
We started on Buffer Babies last week and it is going great, except for one thing. According to the directions you are not supposed to give with fruit, fruit juice, or fruit yogurt. I emailed Dr. P and he said to wait an hour and a half either before or after giving BB! Well so much for not having to time around food! Anyone else know/experience this?

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
We never sued buffer babies, hopefully someone can chime in and answer this for you.

I do know that when Jedd was on a PPI we would wait at least 30 after a dose to feed him anything at all. Now we routinely wait an hour every morning to give him breakfast.

we have been on buffer babies for about 2 months now. From what I understand, The acid levels in fruit are really high and somehow interact with the compound. I've been putting the buffer babies directly into my son's milk bottle at breakfast, lunch and dinner. So I'm not having to time it around food at all. Everyone's routine is different, I know, and my son doesn't eat any solids and he's 21 months old. But here's a sample of our day with buffer babies: wake up and have a 3 oz bottle with buffer babies added; juice smoothie about an hour later. This pattern repeats throughout the day. By putting the buffer babies in a small bottle I can be sure he takes it. Hope this helps

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
I was never told to space it around fruit but we use caracream so that might be different?? Also I give him a dose in the morning before his milk and Go Gurt. He 2nd dose is before bedtime so I guess it is not around fruit by accident.
Check with your
doctor first!
