My Failure to Thrive/GERD Baby...Then and Now ;) *PICS*

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm just looking back at old pictures tonight and am SO thankful that my little man has over come so much! This is him with Failure to Thrive and Severe GERD

Now 9 Months, 4 hospitalizations, and a surgery later, here he is =) Happy, walking, and even starting to talk!

I just HAD to share. I am SO proud of him!

What surgery did your ds have?

Kedryn had a fundo and has a gtube.. he eats solids by mouth but just doesnt seem to gain! He will be 2 in june and weighs 17lbs.

Right now the fundo and omeprazole are doing wonders for his gerd... but when it flares up bad i give him caffiene free chamomile tea!


Quoting Ctink8189:

I know what you are going through in that case! Yes, he did have a gtube for about 6 months and after his surgery it took him a good while to start feeding by mouth again. What are they doing for your little guy? Trying meds, weighing down the formulas? I hope that his does not come down to surgery, but if it ever comes to that, please know that it was the absolute BEST decision we have ever made for him. 


Quoting KedrynsMommie:

My son has ftt and gerd (+ other issues) did yours require a gtube? If not how did you get calories in him?



He looks to be doing awesome mama!!

So precious. The pictures of him when he was so tiny made me just want to snuggle him.

Same exact thing.. fundo and gtube (he got the tube same time as the fundo).. does he have any food allergies that you are aware of? The doc is recommending that Owen stays on toddler formula until atleast 2 (added into his normal diet of table foods of course). Maybe talk to your doc about that. There are ways to make it taste better for him as well
