Re: Reflux Mamas check in

  • Aaron still struggles with this. It was better for a while but now it is a lot again. and he will spit up a lot of his solids too. I think we need to up his dosage. currently he is on 1.5ml/2x per day.

  • E is doing a lot better since we started on the reflux meds. It took a week or two for me to notice any difference so I almost stopped giving it to him, but I'm glad I didn't!

     

  • We are still on meds but only 1.5 ml once a day instead of twice.  Hopefully we will be able to fully ween him off the meds sooner than later.

  • He was doing a lot better since starting solids and we even had stopped the meds. But last week he started puking and spitting up a lot, even solids. Now he is back on meds an we got a referral to a specialist...
  • LO has been on zantac since 1 mo. Dose has gone up twice and he has been getting 2.5mL twice/day (which seems a lot higher than above posters) for a couple months now. At his 6 mo appt the Dr told me to take away a dose and see how he does. I took away his night dose and he slept horribly all week so I assumed he wasn't ready to go off meds. It's been about 1.5 months since I tried to take it away, should I try again?

  • LO has been on Prilosec since around 5 weeks old.  He gets one 3 ml dose a day.  He was on 2 mls twice a day but the doc had us switch and it still seems to be under control.  I haven't noticed a real difference since introducing solids.  He gets his rice cereal in his bottles (we have cut back significantly though) vs. with his fruits or veggies, so I think that helps for him.  It still flares up real bad when he gets a virus or any other type of illness, so I don't think he's ready to be taken off the meds.
  • We are still on meds. Had to up the dose at her 6 month visit. Solids have not helped, I think it's somehow made it worse. At least there is a lot more puking than there used to be. I'm hoping she'll grow out of it sometime soon, but it's not looking like it. 
  • Zantac (2ml 2x a day) since he was 8w old and still spitting up after every feeding albeit a bottle or solids. It's frustrating and I wonder when the heck he'll ever stop. He also has had a few choking episodes that have freaked me out.

  • Wow, I'm feeling really fortunate, Ben has improved a ton after starting solids. It took a few weeks but he almost never spits up anymore. We are also off meds, had been 2ml Zantac twice per day. It was amazing how he started to gain weight and fill out almost immediately after getting the reflux under control with solids around 5.5 months. Kind of makes me wish I had tried some cereal in a bottle prior to that. Hope all your little ones start to outgrow their reflux very soon.

  • K2 is supposed to stop taking his mess this week and be off then for a month before we go back to the GI. He was on 2.5 2x a day, so I am very nervous about quitting cold turkey. He has silent reflux so he never spits up so it's hard to tell if his reflux is bothering him or if it's something else. We had to quit offering any fruits because they were making him wake up all night screaming. Does any other lo have that issue? Btw this is kmommy07 but the bump won't let me log in under my old profile so I had to create a new one.
