Only eats while sleeping
Hello All, I was so relieved to find a forum for parents who are dealing with this difficult issue. I am a first time mom with a 3.5 month old DD who has been diagnosed with silent reflux at 5 weeks (though no tests were done to prove this - diagnosis based on my description of symptoms). She has been on Prevacid for a couple of months now at 1.3ml/day and there has been an improvement with the screams that would normally happen while eating. However, the past couple of weeks, she has point blank refused the bottle while awake. Her little tongue pushes it out and she turns her head from side to side and there is no way she's having it. I have discovered that feeding her while she's asleep is the only way i can get the 30oz a day she should be having. It's exhausting - I am completely house bound knowing that i have to have her sleeping and fed every 2-3 hours to get the required amt of food. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm in tears on a daily basis because i no longer can hold my little girl and experience the bonding that's supposed to happen during feeding times. Has anyone ever gone through the bottle aversion before and gotten through it? Any tips or suggestions? Please help. I'm a heartbroken mummy over this. Wishing all of you and your LOs the strength to get through this.

Welcome izzysmum to the forum. I too have loved this site as I realize I'm not alone in this difficult job of parenting a child who cries, won't eat, and throws up a lot. So sorry you are having a tough time and feeling so exhausted! There is something called "dream" feeding. I don't have any experience with this....but there is lots of info on the web about it and I've heard others on this forum say it really worked for their LOs.

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
Welcome! You have found the right place. So sorry you had to find us though. That means you are having a very rough go of it. 90% of us on the board lived through dream finding. Some of us longer than others. For Ryan is was about a year. We totally understand and can relate to being a prisoner of your home, or more like to a particular chair, in a particular dark room with particular music, with the baby asleep and you not daring to sneeze, cough, flinch or blink while feeding for fear that they will stop eating because once they do, you are done. Oh and death glares to anyone that dare enter the room while you are attempting to feed. Sound familiar?? My expirience was that when ever we slipped back to the need to dream feeds his meds were night right and he was having issues even though he was not screaming anymore. These kids are smart. They figure out really fast that when they eat it causes them pain so they stop conscioulsy eatting even when they are hungry

Tell me more about his meds. When do you give it, is it solutabs or do you have a pharmacist compound it? How old is the bottle you are using? Any other meds or any other conditions? What part of the county do you live?

And I can totally relate to your heart break over missing out on the feeding bonding expirience. I kept Ryan on a bottle a lot longer than I did my daughter because I wanted to get back some of that time I lost in all the months of dream feeding. I am glad I did and I didnt care what anyone else thought about it.

Hang in there, we will help you through this.

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.
Karen is asking all the right questions. Dream feeding is what you are doing and most of us have done it at some point. My son had NO hunger cues, so he never cried for food. He slept through the night, but that's no consolation to a new mom who KNOWS her kid hasn't eaten enough. I started at about one month old and stopped at about 4 months. Basically at this point it's probably harmless, but it will mess with your kid's hunger cycle. Why would I bother with the bottle, when I can sleep and then I'm full! KWIM? Anyway, we did stop it and awake feeding becme the battle of the century in my house. If you're lucky (we weren't)...you can start a couple solids at that point with success. Zacky is 29 months now and still takes a bottle for a lot of his daily calories...nothing I can do about it, it just is what it is. He's still on Prevacid, but the puking is over...he also doesn't refuse too often, but he is VERY volume restricted. We have to supplement everything to death. I hope your little one grows out of it at 6/8/12 months like they are supposed to!! BEST of luck and you are most certainly NOT alone!

Wow! Thank-you all for the super quick response. You are all a huge relief for me. She is taking solutabs at 9pm every night at 1.3ml. We are using Born Free bottles which are 3 months old. I've tried Dr Browns and every other bottle under the sun (I can open up my own shop with the amount of bottles and nipples in my cupboard -lol) and the only thing she seems to take (while sleeping of course) is Born Free. Is there anything I can do to try and ease her back into wakeful eating? I'm sick of the anxiety i feel everytime I walk up the stairs with the bottle in hand - worried that she won't eat the entire thing. I'm lucky to get 3-5 ozs in her before she wakes up and realizes what's going on. Is this something that they grow out of or is there a process i should be starting? I feel a bit on my own with this - my husband works long hours and doesn't realize the extent of my days and her feedings. He thinks everything is fine and that i worry too much. I know if it wasn't for my efforts she wouldn't be eating at all and not have gained what little she has since birth. (Born at 7lbs, 11oz and as of last week is 11lbs,14ozs-still quite little for her age). I'm from Canada and am in the process of changing my family doctor because the current one was so unsupportive and nonchalant with my issues. I'm hoping this new dr will be more of a help. If there's any advice or criticism please feel free to pass on. I'm willing to do anything to start enjoying my time with my beautiful baby girl.

Explain your Prevacid to me more. Solutabs are a solid. I assume you are dissolving it in a little water. Are you using the whole tablet or just part of it? Are you giving it on an empty stomache and feeding 30 minutes later?
May 04, 2010
izzysmum
It's a tablet that I dissolve in it's entirety in 4ml of water and then extract 1.3ml. I give it on an empty stomach half an hour before her feeding. Do you think perhaps her dosage should be increased? Should I maybe ask the dr about this? She's fine in every other way - smiling, active (arms and legs are always moving) and she's started gabbing abit now which is super cute! Just the misery of feeding is taking over all the greatness that could be with her. :-(

Ah.... There we have it! Yes, definately sounds like a dosing issue and a stability issue. I am not a doc but I have never heard of Solutabs being administered in that way. For Ryan I cut 1 solutab in half. I put it in a syringe and pulled back a little water. Let it disolve for a few seconds and squirted it in his mouth. (the syringe that comes with infant Motrin works perfect) I did that in the morning before his first bottle of the day. I did the exact same thing with the other half of the tablet at his last bottle of the day. When you disolve the tablet you want to make sure the tiny little balls are still intact. If they disolve you have just ruined the medicine. the balls protect the medicine from being destoyed by the stomache acid. Some parents just do the whole tablet all at once, one time a day, usually in the morning. Depends on the kiddo. Mine needed it split into 2 doses. He burned through it too quickly. Ryan was the happiest kid too... unless you were trying to feed him. His refusal to eat was his que to us that the meds were wrong. If it were me I would try changing the way you are giving her the meds. Give it a week and see if you see improvement in her willingness to eat. Keep in touch with us.

Glad to hear you are changing docs. It is sooo important to find a doctor that you feel is your partner and really listens to you.

Thanks for all your help and time Karen - it truly is appreciated. :-) Just wondering how old your LO was when you were giving him 1/2 tab? Or maybe how much he weighed? I'm just a little bit leery adjusting the dose when I'm not certain how much of the tab as a solid is equivalent to 1.3ml. The last thing I need is an adverse reaction to Prevacid lol.
May 04, 2010

Quick question for Zack's mom - how long would your LO go without eating when you were attempting the awake feed? I'm just wondering how long is safe enough before I should potentially go back to the sleep feed if the awake feed doesn't work out? I believe little Isabelle would go hours and hours without eating if it means she's awake and aware. The longest she went without before i caved and fed her while she's sleeping was 6 hours.

Ryan was put on a full tablet (15 mg) at 3 weeks of age. He was 10 pounds and some odd oz. Keep in mind that he started at 9 pounds 2 oz. He was moved up to 30 mg a day when he was 13 months old. If you are using one 15 mg tablet and mixing it with 4 ml of water and giving 1.3 ml a day then your daughter is getting 4.875 mg a day... If I did my math right. : ) So she is getting less than a half a tablet a day. What are you doing with the rest of the liquid mixture? Tossing it?? Like I said, I am not a doc, but I recommend asking about increasing it at least to 7.5 mg. That would be 2 ml of your mixture of the way you are making it now or you could just make it easy and cut the tablet in half with a pill spliter. I'd push for 15 mg but that is just me and I am pushy.

Ryan was like Zach... he had no hunger cue... never cried for food... not even at birth. He was jaundice by the time we left the hospital because he could have cared less if he ate. I should have known then that something was wrong.

There is a website that I want you to check out. It is www.marci-kids.com There is so much information on that site. Top notch. They explain everything so well. After a year of nonsense of messing around with meds and formulas, ER trips, etc, I finally hooked up with them and have never looked back. Ryan was at the 97% at birth, dropped to 2% by his first birthday. After I hooked up with Marci Kids, he jumped to the 50% 6 weeks later and no longer had to dream feed. Definately not saying that you will ever have to get to that point. Just saying that knowledge is power. Read everything you can get your eyes on and take control over this thing. You be in control, You make the decisions about your daughter and You demand results from your doctor. Dont let anyone push you around. Your daughter is counting on you to be her voice. Yell if you have to.

I forgot to add that during Ryan's rough patches he could go all day at daycare 7:30 to 5:00 and only take 4 oz. They would not feed him in his sleep. Ick... I haven't thought about those days in a long time. Made it real hard to concentrate at work...

Thank-you so much for your reply Karen. It really means alot to me. Today was an exceptionally difficult day with Isabelle. I'm absolutely terrified that she is catching on to the dream feeds. It's been a day of 2oz here, 2oz there and she wakes up pushing the bottle away and refusing to eat anymore. After this ordeal she's awake and stays awake screaming. Needless to say, alot of tears were shed by both her and I today. I've made an appt to see the pediatrician tomorrow morning and hoping to get somewhere with him. I will try to stay strong and be persistent until I leave with a change in plan. In the meantime, I'm also waiting to have an occupational therapist to get back to me in regards to making an appt to discuss her feeding. Hopefully, this will help some? Have you or anyone had any experiences with occupational therapists? Thanks again for all your advice, tips and sharing your stories. I just have to keep believing there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that she will survive this (as will I, I hope!) Your stories are inspiring and give me a ray of light in an otherwise dismal situation.

Hi, I seldom post anymore, but I also had a dreamfeeder and bottle refuser, and it was extremely stressful. I wanted to suggest a couple things to you. First, do not obsess about getting the "required" 30oz a day...because it's not a requirement, it's an average. My daughter, who weighed 8lbs 11oz at birth NEVER, EVER took in 30oz a day....EVER, and she never once lost weight, and never got dehydrated. Mind you, she gained very very slowly, but that was pretty good since she averaged between 16 and 24oz....and she was a projectile vomiter as well. That's not to say your daughter doesn't need 30oz to gain, but if she only takes in 24oz, she will likely be okay. It's more important in the long run that you not stress so much about numbers, and just get her eating comfortably. If she'll drink 3oz per feed comfortably, it's much better than 4oz that's a fight and stressful event for her, know what I mean? The other thing I would suggest is that you feed her in front of the pediatrician. That way he'll have a good sense of how she is feeding. Also, she'll probably feed well there, because the little stinkers like to make fibbers out of us, SO, if she is really refusing on a constant basis, videotape her feeding. Videotape her screaming. Make it clear to your pediatrician that this is a problem. I won't lie...it's an icky process, because you have to do so much experimenting...with meds, formula, positions, nipples, schedules, volumes, etc....and it's never a good idea to change more than one thing at a time....so it can be a lengthy process, but one worthwhile to get her feeding comfortably AWAKE....dreamfeeding is a godsend in the short term, but in the long term, without her relying on her hunger cues, and you learning to respond to her hunger cues....you'll be in it for much longer than you hope to be....it'll actually re-inforce her aversion....which can carry on over into solid feeding and literally years of problematic feeding behaviour....you gotta nip it in the bud, and your best defence is a GOOD pediatrician who recognizes this is an issue that is stressful for the entire family, and one who values your insights as her mother. I wish you all the best. Hang in there....it will get better, but in the meantime, get all the support you can and enjoy your precious bundle!! GOOD LUCK! Michelle

Thank-you for your help Michelle. I agree I need to stop looking at the 'by the book' number. It's exhausting, stressful and overwhelming for both of us. I just always fear the worse with this whole thing. Can I ask how you managed to get things on track with your LO? With actually wanting the bottle and drinking while awake? I need all the help I can get at this point because the dream feeding is starting not to work so well anymore. :o( My appt with the pedi is in the next hour, I will post the results (if any) when I get back. THanks to all for your support.

Sure, I'd be happy to share some things I tried. To be honest, though, I never really "fixed" her issues with any one thing.....My daughter started happily eating (for the most part) at 18 months, when she was taken off of prevacid and started daycare. For us, prevacid acted as an appetite suppressant, but that is not always the case. For the majority, it works wonders.

I tried a number of different feeding positions. The one that worked the best was sitting her upright against my knees, facing me. She never ever ever wanted to feed in cradle position. I also propped her up on a pillow to feed her on particularly pukey days, so as to not get covered in puke myself. Have you tried sharing the feeding with family members? This will help to give you a break.

Have you adjusted her nipple levels yet? Some babies do better with a slow flow nipple, other with a faster flow. I used Born Free for my daughter as well (eventually, lol) and you want to be sure that the rim is not on too tight or too loose. You want bubbles to equalize the pressure in the bottle. If she's having to suck to hard to get milk, she'll get aversive pretty quickly.

One of the first things your pedi will likely tell you to do is to switch to an elemental formula, to rule out mspi.

You should also look at adjusting her meds to the proper dosage.

Darn....I have to go, but I'll be back with some more suggestions later. Good luck at your appointment.

Other things you can try (or may have already tried, lol) is light vs. dark room, noisy vs. quiet, outside vs. inside. You can also play with the temperature of the formula.

If you can manage to get her to take the bottle, let her come off when she is ready. I found that stopping to burp after a couple of ounces meant that the feeding was over. But if she is a gassy baby, I wouldn't recommend this.

These are some things you can try to at least break up the insanity and take your mind off of feeling helpless...the most important things are to protect her esophagus with the right combination of meds, rule out anything anatomical or medical that might be causing her to be feeding aversive, get your pedi on board, try to relax about the feeding, and ask for help and support (which you've done by coming here). (((HUGS)))

Thanks Michelle! Your tips are very helpful. 18 mos! That's 14 months away for me! lol. The pedi understood my concerns and has suggested the following: Her medication has been slightly increased to be given twice a day. So instead of 1.3ml once a day she will be getting 1ml in the evening and 1ml in the morning. He told to remain on the formula as he is pretty confident this isn't the issue. He's also making an appt for me at a hospital near by with an ENT specialist. He says they can help take the steps to have her stop with the sleep feeds and ease into regular feeding again. (I sure hope this is true). In the meantime, the numbers game I've been playing can be eased a bit. The pedi told me that if i can get min. 25 ozs a day she should be ok. Though the weight increases will slow substantially. She has gained 1/2 lb since last week which is ok. She currently is in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th for height. I've also been told by a public health nurse who came by yesterday that I have postpartum depression. I'm not convinced by this but she wants me to see my family dr asap to get properly diagnosed and treated. I believe that if my babe was eating normally she'd be fine and that I don't have PPD but I'll leave that to the professionals I suppose. *sigh* Alot to deal with right now. Speaking of, she's sleeping now so i'm going to try and get a couple of ozs in her while i can. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing your thoughts?

Hi! Sounds like you had an effective appointment! Good job! It seems to me like you are doing a wonderful job. 50% is a great place to be! Rest assured that with the proper support and a good doctor that your baby will not starve to death. Babies CAN starve themselves, contrary to popular belief, but if they are in the process of doing that, your doctors will see it (((HUGS))) It's awesome you have a referral. The more people to listen and help the better. I won't lie...it may get worse before it does get better....teething, solids, growth spurts, illness....these can all make reflux worse...but being prepared will help. And I think your health nurse is right for you to see your doctor and discuss how you are feeling. It's hard enough having a baby, but a baby that won't eat is really hard. There's no shame in admitting you are struggling...your happiness and well-being is now, and will forever be, directly linked to your childs happiness and well-being. Welcome to parenthood ;) Good luck hon (((HUGS)))

FWIW, I was cuckoo when my Rory was an infant. She was diagnosed FTT at 3 months. We really struggled with her feeding and her growth. Ironically, she is now 3 years old, eats anything and everything, and LOTS of it, and just hit 25lbs last week. And she was 8lbs 110z at birth.....so she hasn't even tripled her birthweight yet :) And she is THRIVING and none the worse for wear.

Good News! She ate 2ozs while awake! It took 40 mins. but each time she pushed it out I waited a bit and tried again. Hopefully this will help things get better? Trying not to give myself false hope. lol

Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
my son...if i left him to his own devices would go HOURS without anything! Daycare was a nightmare for me. I'd get the report that he'd had ONE ounce during the whole time he was there. I can almost cry just thinking of those days!! It was bad...really really bad...he did eventually learn to eat during the day...only now at 2 1/2 though am I sensing he has any hunger or will to eat. Up til now it was totally me telling him he needed it. I can so empathize with you...along with most people here! On the Prevacid - there's no way to know what dose you are getting if you are dissolving the whole thing and taking up only 1.3ml. I would ask for either a 7.5 dose to start or hell...just go straight to 15. Prevacid is pretty harmless. Z has been on it forever adn the worst of it is slightly discolored teeth...and who knows how much of that is puke vs Prevacid?? I wish you all the best. I am at rattgrrrl@yahoo.com if you need me!

I wanted to add that my girl was 5.5 lbs at birth, and only 12 lbs now at 7months. She has been on the same dosage that Karen discussed since she was 1 month old - 15mg tab @ 1/2 tab in the morning and 1/2 tab at night. I have not seen any issues with that dosage for a small kiddo. (I'm new here, and will post my own issue in a minute. :-) )

Dreamfeeding son 5 mnths old
Hi Izzysmom, i'v been tracking ur post from the beginning coz i too have the same problem with my son. He is exclusively breastfed. He started refusing to feed when he was 2 months old. He feeds from me only in his sleep. He takes very less but gains weight normally. I am planning to start solids for him. Did u try solids with ur daughter? How is she doing now? Any improvement with awake feeding?
Check with your
doctor first!
