We tried it all!
I was a foster Mom for three years to a beautiful little girl. She was 13 months old when she arrived in my home. I immediately took her to a pediatrician who referred us to a pediatric GI doctor. She was placed on Nexium once a day and a high calorie formula but her vomiting continued. She rarely slept more than an hour at night or during the day. She was fussy and cried a lot. She was always sick with respiratory illnesses and fevers. She was not getting any better.
After a year with no progress, I noticed that during one nap she stopped breathing. I immediately called both the GI and pediatrician. I was told that I imagined it and that her reflux was well maintained. However, I knew it was not. I was frustrated and exhausted.
I found a new pediatrician that led me to a new GI doctor. G was 2 1/2 years old at this point and still vomiting daily. She was still choking on solids and I was pureeing all of her food. The new GI sent us for allergy testing and we were connected with a feeding therapy program at the hospital.
In the process of all of this, G was hospitalized with pneumonia. The GI doctor was running out of ideas. Removing milk, egg, and soy helped to control her vomiting but she was still struggling with reflux and awake several times a night due to choking.
Then, after hours of online searching, I found Infant Acid Reflux Solutions and read a lot about Marci dosing. I made the decision to give it a try. It was amazing, G started sleeping through the night and was happy.
I also decided to order TC Max and I never looked back. She was sleeping through the night, she no longer complained of an 'ouchy' belly. She was such a different little girl.
I am so very thankful for all of the research and the dedication to helping babies and toddlers with GERD. Not to mention the help it is to families. I think if I had found this group from the start, a lot of what we went through would have been so different. I am so very glad that when G finally met her forever family this past March, she was a happy healthy little girl.
Once we started Marci dosing and using TC Max, all of her other medical needs disappeared. She was no longer sick all the time and she was eating normally and growing.
