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.

Have you considered using Digestive Enzymes instead?

I never even gave it a thought it was just something we did and it worked so i left it alone. well i should say somewhat worked because she had a scan that still showed severe delay even on the meds. have you used them yourself and how are they administered. thanks for the input!

Some parents have used Augmentum in the place of EES.

The only other option is Reglan.

I used a brand caused Enzymedica digest. It's in a capsule. I opened it and put half a capsule in the morning bottle and half in the night bottle. The gal at the health food store said she recommends it for people on PPIs since there is less acid in the stomach to aid digestion. Supposedly there is a saliva test to see if you are lacking certain digestive enzymes. I used the try it and see method. I tried it with him and liked the results so I stuck with it. Lots of different kinds out there.
Check with your
doctor first!
