For the first 2 months of my son's life I could tell he was uncomfortable. Whenever I would lay him down he would arch his back and start screaming.
Being a first time parent, I had no idea what was wrong or really what to do. At first the pediatrician told me that our son had colic and that it'd go away after a few months. Things progressively got worse for us. I would literally dread nighttime and become anxious as it approached knowing that my son would be in so much pain and not be able to sleep.
During the day he wouldn't nap. Things were rough. My son would also breastfeed for hours and hours everyday to help soothe him..and then he would eat too much and throw up...it was an endless cycle.
After going back to the pediatrician several times and asking how I could help my baby the Dr. Finally prescribed us Zantac. It helped a little for about a week and then we were back to the same screaming and writhing in pain we had before.
Then we were prescribed Omeprazole. This seemed to make a difference for a few weeks and then it was like he wasn't even on a proton pump inhibitor. We were spending a lot on this medication too..and it wasn't helping at all. After going to the pediatrician and being told that there was nothing else they could do for him and he would just have to grow out of it I was very angry.
There had to be something that could help my son!
I then started researching on my own and came across Infant Acid Reflux Solutions on Facebook. After reading post after post about the miracle product TummyCare Max, I was convinced we had to try it.
I also discovered that our sons medication was only stable for about 7 days in the refrigerator so that is why it wasn't working!
I ordered the TummyCare Max and mixed it with ground up Prilosec tablets per the directions. We had an acid battle at first and I didn't think it was working...so I asked the Infant Acid Reflux Solutions support team and they were extremely helpful in figuring out when to give my son his doses.
This product has literally changed my sons life. There's no more endless screaming, no more bouncing him up and down all night to calm him, no more arching his back..and not nearly as much spit up as we had before.
I recommend TummyCare Max to anyone and everyone I encounter who's child has acid reflux...it's definitely been an answered prayer for our family. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product for our babies.
