I have never heard of prilosec for babies! Especially with the side effects that they are finding in adults. It can cause brittle bone disease after prolonged use, so I would NEVER use it for a baby! Babies spit up, that's a fact of life, you just deal with it, it doesn't hurt them, they don't get sick or die from it, they just spit up!
Ive put off meds but the Dr said its probaley a good idea for the amount and discomfort of his spit up. She told me that it reduces the acid in his stomach which helps the discomfort,of course babies spit up but he is pretty bad. I just feel sooo bad for my lil'man :(
