My 2 yr old has stopped eating. I don't know what to do. She was dx with GERD at about 2 weeks old. She seemed to outgrow it at around 18 months, but that only lated 6 months. When she turned 2 she started having problems again.
She is 2 1/2 now, and we can't seem to get it under control. She is on 15 mg Prevacid twice a day. But we are using tums and pepto at least twice a day. She won't eat barely anything. And when she does, she starts crying that her neck and tummy hurt. And doing the coughing, gagging thing. So she ate about 500 calories today and yesterday. And most of that was juice, cause that she drinks.
What next? Are there better meds for this? She hasn't been tested since being a newborn. I'm just lost. I thought we had it under control and for the first month on the prevacid, she did REALLY good, but now it's like we aren't even giving her the meds.
Wanted to add, she's only 24.8 lbs. Which puts her in the 8% for her age. So she's a little thing, she can't afford to lose any weight.
