Our feeding team is inspired to try new things so we've made some changes. Noah's Prevacid has been doubled from 15mg to 30mg and he now takes it in the morning instead of at night. The big difference that we've noticed so far is that now he throws up all over his bed each evening instead of his high chair or carseat in the morning. Anyone know why he might feel the need to vomit an entire meal approximately 12 hours after a dose of Prevacid?
We're also sampling EO 28 Splash in an effort to try Noah off of dairy. Thus far I've noticed a distinct lack of couching, retching, gagging, and congestion in my house. Lots of grimacing over the flavor, though, and a major increase in avoidance behaviors at meals. About the same amount of refluxing - that never changes. We still have 2 more flavors to try before the official test, so hopefully he'll fall in love with one of them.
If the increased Prevacid and/or the lack of dairy don't solve all of Noah's feeding issues, or next step will be to try Periactin. After that we may or may not try Neurontin. If that doesn't work I imagine they'll try to come up with this or that in an effort to look like they're doing something, but the fact that they've recently started to refering to "if" Noah eats real food as opposed to "when" makes me think there probably isn't a lot left to try. Not that it matters to me, really. I mean, pureeing food isn't all that much trouble. Id'd be nice if he'd feed himself, but we're actually making progress with that, so I don't imagine it'll be too many years. That'll be a day to celebrate!
