Mom to two refluxers. DS 4.5 years, on prevacid since 5 weeks. Trial wean this summer...fail. Intolerant of dairy and soy DD born Nov 2010. Currently on zegerid. Had stomach malrotation & surgery at 9 months. Avoiding dairy/soy with her while BFing.
Update on my DD (zegerid)
thank you for the people on this board that helped me get my DD on zegerid. It has greatly helped. She is 8 months old now and had reflux symptoms since birth. Her upper gi recently did show that she has a defect of her stomach...it is not properly attached and basically folds over onto itself. She is awaiting surgery to fix it to the abdominal wall. At the same time, GI doc will do an endoscopy. We are hoping the surgery will help make her much more comfortable. Feedings and sleep have been such a battle. Zegerid has definitely helped make her more comfortable and I am thankful that my pediatrician was on board with trying it. The GI doc was a little hesitant to have her on a high dose but agreed to keep her on it while we await surgery. Anyway, just wanted to update.
Check with your
doctor first!
