Many parents do not have problems conceiving babies.
Unfortunately, that was not the case for my husband and I. We struggled with infertility and had countless IVF procedures for 5 years.
Finally, we were blessed with our miracle son! He was born 6 weeks premature and spent time in the NICU. Approximately 1 week of bringing him home, the crying started. Crying and screaming in pain every time we fed him. He arched his back, grunted, spit up constantly, frequent hiccups, and the constant crying.
My first pediatrician told my husband that I was causing this. My anxiety was causing my baby’s pain, and he wasn’t suffering from reflux but from his mother’s anxiety.
Doctor and after doctor we saw said that he did have reflux and he would just grow out of it. He had laryngoscopes, bronchoscopes, endoscopies, and colonoscopies. He even had a pH study in the hospital that showed over 130 reflux episodes.
The “specialist” pediatric GI said that this was not abnormal. We tried Zantac and it worked for a week. We tried nexium, Prevacid soliutabs, and omeprazole. It would work for a short period of time and then the bottle refusals and crying would start all over again. I am a healthcare professional and never felt so let down or alone from the medical community.
How could my profession let me down so horribly? I then began to research and research on the internet. I spent hours upon hours on the computer.
One night I came across Infant Acid Reflux Solutions. I found out Dr. Prince and Dr. Phillips.
I immediately filled out the questionnaire. Dr. Phillips happened to be on vacation which be never does. It was actually his first vacation in years. He was on a boat in the Caribbean with very limited cell service. He took the time to call me and talk me through all of my fears and concerns about going rogue against my son’s doctors.
What kind of person and human being that does not know me or my son be so willing to help me as soon as possible?
An absolute angel and passion to stop needless suffering and pain in GERD babies.
I took the plunge and have never looked back. My son has been on a PPI treament for 1.5 years, and without it, I am not sure my son would still be with us with his FTT and refusal to eat.
It’s very difficult for me to talk about his struggles and my emotional health during this period of time. I still have PTSD symptoms related to babies crying or if my son doesn’t want to eat.
This company and people are nothing short of a miracle! Without them and the constant support of Infant Acid Reflux Solutions team, our family would be in a black hole.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
