Your baby is crying and screaming in pain constantly, won't eat and when your baby does it's just more crying and screaming. Let's not forget the never ending vomit and spitting up.
Being the parent of a baby with acid reflux disease, it's hard to imagine what it would be like to have a happy baby that eats and loves it, that smiles and laughs and can actually be left with a loved one or baby sitter. These are precious times with your baby.
We've worked with hundreds of families and their medical teams and we want to help you too!
TummyCare Max® is a buffer that assists in administering proton pump inhibitors to your little one with acid reflux disease. They contain, flavors, sweeteners, thickeners and buffer. It makes the PPI more palatable and protects them from stomach acid.
TummyCare Max® works with proton pump inhibitors (PPI): Such as omeprazole or lansoprazole whether they are over the counter (OTC) or prescription (Rx) in accordance with the treatment regimen outlined by your infants medical provider team. Once they decide which product best fits your baby's needs, your local compound pharmacy can blend it for you.
7-30 Days worth of treatment: This will depend on the dosing regimen your baby’s healthcare team has determined is appropriate. The cost of using TummyCare Max® could work out to be much less than $3 dollars a day and that includes the price of the proton pump inhibitor. Use our dosing calculator and product cost calculator to assist you and your medical team.
Turns into immediate release formulation: When a PPI is compounded with our product it will become an immediate release PPI rather than a delayed release. That means more rapid absorption of the PPI.
MSPI and FPIES allergen friendly: MSPI stands for milk, soy, protein intolerance. FPIES stands for food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome. We went to great measures to insure that our ingredients (listed here) are allergen friendly and meet the very special criteria for babies with MSPI and FPIES. TummyCare Max® is gluten free, milk free, corn protein free, is not tested on animals and none of our products contain any lactose milk protein, soy protein. Your baby's health is our number one priority!
Primary Buffers: We use calcium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide as primary buffers and a very minimal amount of sodium bicarbonate as a secondary buffer. Sodium bicarbonate can be the cause of digestive gas. So less sodium bicarbonate could mean less gas for your baby and the discomfort associated with gas.
Stable for 30 days: Our stability testing documents stability of TummyCare Max to be stable for 30 days (with omeprazole or lansoprazole).
Product Guarantee: We stand behind our products and want you to feel confident you and your medical team are doing the right thing.
It tastes GREAT!: The special blend of non-acidic flavorings and sweeteners in our product also mask the bitter taste of a PPI medications such as omeprazole or lansoprazole and make them taste great. Just think how easy it will be to give your baby their GERD medications when they actually love the flavor. Babies LOVE TummyCare Max® because it tastes like vanilla ice cream!
