WOW, our kids sound like TWINS. Did Stanton start the vomit at birth? Z's was silent til about 7 months...then WOW...very very loud. Love your blog. I'm following you now. I wanted to give you some hope that it'll end. We really thought there was no end in sight (and all the docs told us so as they hovered over Z with a scalpel begging to do a nissen)..then the miracle of miracles....his second birthday...that month was the beginning of the end (of phase one...no vomiting). We are now happily on Phase 2 (please eat something). All steps are small but in the right direction!

So glad you like the blog! I'm really excited about it and am having fun with it! Stanton's 2nd b-day is June 12th. It would just be a miracle of all miracles if he suddenly stopped vomiting! Wow - would that be amazing. Really the vomiting doesn't bother me so much anymore - it's the aftermath that comes along with those really bad episodes. We end up with pneumonia, or tightening of the airway, or chronic sinus/ear infections, etc. I'm sure you understand this part of it too. Thanks for the encouraging words! I look forward to sharing more together on the blog. Your comment on the blog got me thinking I should post something about dealing with insurance....hmmmmm

oh - forgot to mention. Stanton's violent vomiting began when he was 10 days old. We were on Prevacid by 9 weeks and have played the milk/formula/medication game ever since.

I begged for help starting at 2 months, but was ignored because he was gaining weight...(because of dream feeds and force feeds!)...finally I brought in a bunch of research at 6 months and they put us on Prevacid...took long enough!! Then the vomiting started and we tred every drug on the planet!! Reglan,Erythro, Gatrocrom, you name it, we tried it! In the end, he really did have to outgrow it...just took foreverrrrrrrrr. I'd feed witha bottle in one hand and a bowl in the other...all while covered in a bathsheet! Insurance post is a good idea. We tried several times to get Elecare covered, but alas, no luck unless he was on a tube.
Check with your
doctor first!
