I hope this hasn't been asked before, but I'm wondering if my son (9 weeks old) could be allergic to Prevacid.
We took him to a GI specialist almost two weeks ago because the poor baby was clearly miserable and in pain. He would scream during feeds, arch, cry, etc and then he stopped eating more than 1, maybe 2 ounces. He's a big boy and he was only taking 15 ounces a day. He also was pretty depressed, no more sweet smiles and our pediatrician found blood in his stool.
Specialist took him off breastmilk (exclusive pumper, here) and on a two week Neocate trial and he was IMMEDIATELY better on Neocate, sucked down an entire bottle the very first time and we were so happy to see our happy baby again. However, after 5 days we introduced the Prevacid BACK in and the fussiness returned - arching, screaming, hitting the 2 ounce wall an not taking another sip, etc.
Two days off the Prevacid and he is happy and eating again. So, is he allergic to Prevacid? Does he even have a dairy allergy at all? Inquiring minds want to know. Any of you with sweet little ones allergic to Prevacid have any insight for this new momma? Of course I'm calling the doc on Monday, too.
