refresh my memory...teeth coming in can cause flares right? I'm not crazy...Z has had a terrible couple weeks of eating...throwing up a handful of times...he was complaining on monday that his mouth hurt, so i took a look and sure enough...two molars coming in... Please tell me that could be causing this flare...I cannot go backward...we were doing SO well!!!!

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
Not to worry... Yes teething does a huge number on their reflux. I was working on weening Ryan off the meds as I thought he was all done with it. However last week I noticed him coughing and swallowing more and being more picky about what he was eating. He happened to have his 6 month dentist appointment and the dentist pointed it out. All four are coming in at the same time. I will be waiting to take him off the meds.

PS. I have plenty of packets of caracream if you want me to send you a couple. You open 14 capsules of Zegrid, add 100 ML of water and one packet of caracream. Makes a 2 week supply. Works wonderfully. 2 packets is all you would need to get him through the teeting. Email me if you want it. (I lost your email address) Otherwise you can order it thorugh www.refluxsolutions.com. PSS. How is that baby coming along? Is she almost ready to join us on the outside?

You are absolutely correct! MOLARS = NIGHTMARE in our house, ugh!
Check with your
doctor first!
