Re: Reflux flare ups?

It should all be done by weight. As kids grow, the dose is adjusted. But a 10 day old dose should still be fine.

Good luck mama--Prevacid just cuts the doesn't stop the physical reflux of fluids. The esophagus closes naturally as kids get older. 90% have it close by 10 months, and 95% by a year. Sadly, my son is in the other 5%...

The congestion comes from the vomitting. It makes a cycle...vomit, congestion, extra mucous in the stomach and coughing=vomit more=extra mucous...blah blah blah. Hope it gets better soon.
