TCM - the life saver

My reflux girlies
My first born daughter suffered from acid reflux, so when my second daughter was born I thought I was a guru in the reflux industry.
Turns out I was wrong, all the things I did for my first born were not working for my second born daughter. I recognized it was reflux right away because of the signs, so I requested a PPI right away.
Well that wasn't working and it didn't even seem like she had medication at all. She was constantly screaming and crying. My husband and I were so tired. Even my 2.5 old seems like she wasn't sleeping either from all the screaming.
One of my friends reached out to me on Facebook after noticing one of my posts about how tired we are and our battle with reflux. She gave me the Infant Acid Reflux Solutions website and added me to the Infant Acid Reflux Solutions Facebook group. Holy goodness was I ever in heaven!
I did endless reading on the website, learned about Marci dosing, and so many many many other things that I just had no idea about. I got a consult with Dr. P who told me about her dose and a few other things. I went in with my print outs from the website, and I ordered TCM (I couldn't wait for my package to come in the mail!)
I showed my pediatrician the information and explained what tummycare max does. She kept the information as she wanted to read it later on. I wouldn't say she was 100% on board but she didn't fight me and let me do what I felt was best based on the fact that I had medical research to back my request.
I got my TCM in the mail not long after that and I made up my first bottle. Mixing was super easy and I am not going to lie it tastes delicious. I loved the fact that it was safe for babies with dairy allergies because my daughter also had that.
Within a week or so (after the acid battle, even though we were on a PPI the dose was too low causing her to be in constant acid battle) it was like we had a new baby!!! I couldn't believe it. She started eating a higher amount of food. She went from being born in the 80%, down to the 50% and then back up to 70%!!! All because of TummyCare Max. I hoarded my TCM packages, they were considered liquid gold just like breast milk. It saved our lives cause I no longer had to time my PPI dose between feeds (impossible with such a little baby) and I didn't have to worry about taste, she loved it and I knew it had a built in buffer.
I do my best to share the website with other moms that suffer with reflux babies I cannot stress enough how much it has helped. The Facebook group has been so helpful as well and Kira and Dr. P answer all the questions that they can. It's absolutely amazing to see such a community come together.
I know my little one if she could would thank you for ending her discomfort and making her life so much easier.
We love TummyCare Max! And the Infant Acid Reflux Solutions team!
