Anyone else out there still dealing with reflux? Based on what I've heard, most reflux in babies clears up by 6 months or so and that the worst cases often clear by about 18 months.
D is exactly 12 month adjusted today (today was his due date, but he was born in October). He's been on Prevacid since before he was term and our current dose is 4mg daily, 2 in the morning, 2 in the evening.
Recently he's been throwing up in the middle of the night and he also frequently throws up his bedtime bottle. Google has sent me various places including worrying about a brain tumor, but I think it's probably the reflux.
I found this list of symptoms on ask.com:
*Abdominal pain above the belly button
*Burning sensation in the esophagus
*Extreme pickiness about foods or refusing food
*Eating only a few bites despite hunger
*Gagging or choking
*Poor weight gain or weight loss
*Constantly runny nose
*Frequent sore throat
*Respiratory problems (such as bronchitis, wheezing, asthma)
*Nagging dry cough
*Poor sleep, frequent waking
*Frequent ear infections and/or ear congestion
*Excessive salivation or drooling
*Intolerant of pressure on the stomach
So I'm curious how reflux looks for your lo and what med/dosage lo is on:
1. Lo's Name and Age
2. Medication and Dosage
3. Reflux-related issues you are dealing with.
