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
Hi!! How did the GI appointment go? Did you end up ordering the Caracream? - Karen

Hey there, I was so surprised by the support we got from the GI. (Usually I feel like I'm fighting the drs. to help her...while they're telling me just to wait it out...she'll start eating when she's ready!) Upon weighing her, she was now in the 11th percentile. We are trying a different med combination and dosing schedule....thought I would give it a try before ordering caracream...although the GI was completely supportive both ways. Also, waiting for the results of some allergy testing. In the mean time, GI wants me to increase her calorie intake to 24 per ounce. So far, the new meds seem to be more effective at controlling the pain... she is up to eating 2 1/2-3 ounces per feeding instead of only 2. I am giving the meds 2 weeks to work before I make any other changes... thanks so much for all your help and support..and most importantly for remembering my little one :)
