Prevacid Shortage - Need BB Instructions for Mixing with Prilosec!!
Apparently there is a nationwide shortage of Prevacid - all our local stores are completely out of it! My husband went out to get some so we could make a fresh batch of Buffer Babies (now called Belly Buffers), and he couldn't find it anywhere.

Does anyone use Marci Kids' BB with Prilosec? Can you please post the mixing instructions for me here? It looks like we're going to need to sub Prilosec for Prevacid until Prevacid is back on the shelves, but I have no idea how to mix up the BB using Prilosec. PLease help!!

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
I used Caracream Z with OTC Zegerid. I have some packets left over. I can mail them to you if you want. If so, just send me a note on FB.

Thanks Karen! I actually was able to find some Prevacid on Amazon. $44 for a 42-ct. box. :( But, it's on its way. We ran out of Prevacid on Friday so Kylie hasn't had her BB since then. She actually seems to be doing ok...we've been weaning and were down to 12 mg/day split now I'm not sure if I should put her back on the Prevacid right when it arrives or just keep watching for signs that the reflux is bothering. I wonder if she doesn't need the med anymore...
Check with your
doctor first!
