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.
Update
Hi guys, hadnt been in for a bit, so I thought I'd post some good news (that can be rare!). Zack has all but completely stopped puking...if you don't know his story, just imagine puking 6 or 7 times a day for your entire life...bucketfuls..at 2 it slowed considerably and he's 2 1/2 now and rarely every pukes. Thanks to that he's FINALLY trying some new foods. He is not eating enough to quit the formula/ pediasure mix and the supplements, but he's experimenting and not spitting it out ALL the time (he still spits a lot)... He actually ate almost a whole slice of pizza the other day...holy heck! Anyway, we are making small steps in the right direction. It's a struggle, but it's a MUCH more pleasant one without vomit 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

Well... since the carpet is already Elecard polk a dot then I guess you should just have another baby... : ) Yes, you can hit me through the internet. But... Zach needs a sister, don't you think??
