Does anyone have their babies on both Zantac and Prevacid?

Re: Reflux mamas ?

  • I don't. But I'm curious....when do you know that your lo has a problem. My dd has been spitting up with her burps. Sometimes it is mixed with mucous. Sometimes it's a little and other times alot. When do u get concerned?
    For now, I'm gonna try to burp at every ounce. But I also noticed that if I change her suing the feeding then she spits up a little then but I guess cuz she is laying down to soon. It makes me worried about night feedings.
  • Is she crying when she spits up? If yes talk to your doc. If not she might just be a happy spitter. Good luck!

    Op, sorry we r only on Prevacid. Curious if any are in 2 meds.

  • She is crying but only because I stopped feeding her to burp her. So then I wonder if she is getting herself all worked up. She doesn't spit up every bottle so that was another reason I wasn't concerned but I just wanted to check.
  • DD was on Zantac but they took her off when the Prevacid was prescribed. What did your doctor say to do?

    i knew DS had a problem when I would put him to bed and he would grunt laying on his back and swallow out of nowhere. Or cry. He has silent reflux and doesn't spit up much. If your LO is uncomfortable take her to the doc   

  • just lurking but my DD was on both. She had  severe reflux so I gave zantac in the morning, 4 hours later prevacid, and at night zantac again. 

    She also was instructed by her specialist to sleep on her tummy because she couldn't lay flat at all and choked on her spit up (turning blue not breathing) once when we had her on her back at an incline in the crib. We got the angelcare after that! DD had severe reflux and colic it was a really rough 4 months and then it was much better!

    She went on reflux meds at almost 1 month old, just zantac, and then at her almost 3 month appointment we found blood in her stool and she had multiple ulcers and damage to the esophagus so the specalist started her on Prevacid too. She cried alllllll day long and only slept upright on my chest (I had to be standing completely upright or I slept upright up against the wall with her in the moby!) I was in that doctors office demanding something else was wrong every few days and kept getting pushed aside as "just colic" and "give mylicon" until I finally went to children's hospital on my own. 

    I had to be on a strict diet (ebfing) which helped the reflux a lot. No milk products of any kind, no chocolate, no soy, no gassy veg, no spicy/garlic. It was rough and I ate very plain food until she was 6 moths old then I slowly added stuff back in and started her on solid foods. 

    Now she is a happy, healthy toddler and outgrew it around 11 months old! 

    On the Mini pill, ebfing, and no AF ever.....16 months apart!

    Thank you for your story. Gratefully it isn't extreme like this, but as I try to cut back the Zantac for the Prevacid it gets worse again... So I'm thinking doing both is the answer but I wasn't sure if that ever even happened. I'm cutting dairy starting tomorrow so that may help... Exhausting having your baby cry in pain for nearly three months...
