Do you know what it's like to have a baby who spits out the nipple of her bottle after just a few sucks? What about a baby who shakes her head back and forth when you put a bottle in her mouth or hits the bottle with her hand violently to have the bottle removed from her mouth?
After 4 months of struggling to get just 20 oz per day into our little girl (usually between 0.5 - 1.5 oz a feed - it was a fulltime job), we finally found this company! Our daughter has silent reflux and was grossly low dosed a PPI for a month because of a mix-up between the doctor and pharmacy. Then, even when following MARCI dosing with the pharmacy compounded PPI, it would lose effectiveness quickly and by day 10 we would again have a baby who flat out refused the bottle.
After starting on the pharmacy compound, we have a new baby who is now THRIVING better than ever! Dr. Prince, pointed us to a proper dosing schedule, we can now give our daughter her medicine any time of day - no more worrying about how long it was since her last feeding or having to wait 30 minutes in the morning for her first feeding of the day. No more worrying that the suspension will become unstable in shortly over a week - we've gone well over 2 weeks without issue.
Infant Acid Reflux Solutions has truly been a life saver. Our daughter over doubled her birth weight by her 6 month birthday when it initially didn't look like she would get there. We would be in a horrible place had we not found TCM.
Additionally, Jeffrey Phillips, PharmD, and Kira Volpi are extremely accessible and responsive should you have any questions regarding reflux.
We are so grateful for all that they have done for us!
