  • We actually switched my LO to enfamil lactofree when she was having issues. She is 2 and is still on prevacid. We actually did prevacid and zantac together when she was LO. I totally feel your pain with this. I hope that she does better with the new formula.

  • 9 1/2 times out of 10 reflux is caused by suctioning (which is unnecessary 99% of the time) at birth. The deep suctioning damages the esophagus. 1 of my 3 (the one I allowed unknowingly to be suctioned) had severe reflux- spent the first 3 year s of her life on Zantac (it works better than prevacid)
