Julian's Reflux Tale
Hey my name is Julian and I am a much happier baby now that my reflux is under control. It was a rough couple months getting here. I was diagnosed with reflux at two months but my mommy knew way before this and even had to switch my pediatrician just so I could get help.
Every time I tried to drink my bottle I would scream, arch my back, spit up, it was really bad. Nobody could feed me but mommy, and that made me sad. I wanted to spend time with my daddy and grandparents too. Even when I wasn't eating I would have episodes of reflux which wouldn't let me nap or sleep much at night. Luckily I have a very sweet twin sister who didn't even mind that mommy had to hold me all the time.
I finally found a pediatrician willing to treat my reflux. She put me on Zantac which worked great....for a couple weeks. During that time I got to show mommy and daddy my first smile. I was finally feeling good which made me very happy.
But then it came back.
My pediatrician increased my dose but that still didn't help. She then prescribed me compounded prilosec. Yuck! I did not like that at all! I spit it up almost immediately. And when I did get it down it gave me horrible tummy aches and that was even worse than my reflux.
After a few days and lots of research my mommy said no more to the prilosec compound. It wasn't worth it. Luckily she found TummyCare Max and ordered it right away. While it felt much better on my tummy I wasn't very happy when mommy and daddy would wake me up from my nap to give me medicine and wouldn't give me my bottle afterwards. I couldn't believe they'd wake me up and not feed me! I had to wait at least thirty minutes and no matter how much I cried they wouldn't give in.
I was so happy the day my TummyCare Max came in the mail and I could drink my bottle whenever I wanted. Still my acid reflux was really bad. And after ten days on TummyCare Max mommy and daddy started to get scared it wouldn't work. But then it finally started working. Every single day got better and better.
I started doing my tummy time again and learned to roll over. It was awesome. My sis was a lot happier too. We got to go on our walks again and spend more time playing!
I am now five months old and have been on TummyCare Max for the past two months. I don't know what I would do without it. I never want to be in pain like that again. I'm so happy that I can now spend my days flashing smiles, laughing and showing off my singing skills.
Thank you tummycare max!
