Prevacid Side Effect or Teething
Well, we have compelted 2 weeks on the Prevacid Solutabs 15mg a day split between a 6am and 6pm dose. He is also still on Nutramigen but I have been also halfing it with Alimentum because I have so many Similac cupons. Everything seems to be going good. He is taking about 24oz a day for the past 5-6 days (up from 14-17oz) and isn't spitting up as much but I still do hear the girgle and swallow sounds so I know it's still happening even though it's not coming out. I hope that I can get him up a couple more oz in the next couple weeks. He is eating baby food and/or ceral twice a day with out any problems. We were in for a follow up this past friday and he only gained 10oz in the last month but he gained and I was suprised with 10oz since he's barley been eating. Anyway to my question, Mason alway, I mean ALWAYS slept through the night since about 3 weeks old but now he wakes twice a night crying and I have to put his passy in and pat his back so he will go back to sleep. It's started since the Prevacid but I also have noticed he's getting a tooth on the bottom right side. Could this new waking be a side effect of the Prevacid or just due to teething. VIGILANTMOM - I also wanted to see if you could give me some pointers on how you transitioned Ryan to eating while awake. Mason still takes most bottles sleeping.

My guess is that it's the teething...
