    I was just going to ask about flavoring the zantac because my DD also hates it - and I don't blame her, it tastes terrible! I still think I may ask the pharmacy to flavor it because anything would be better.
    Me (32) + DH (34) + (IVF x 2) =
    T (5 years, born at 26w) + M (2.5+ years, born at 38w)

    Back for IVF#3 after a failed FET - in 2ww

    We used to do grape that seems to hide it pretty well.... they would add extra flavor to it.

If it doesn't work there is pepcid or prevacid. I had to switch all the way up to Prevacid.
    Wow, I didn't even know that this thread existed!! Thank goodness. My little guy is 9 days old and I took him in today for reflux (my ds had it too so I recognized it immediately) I mean when they are projectile vomiting through nose and mouth and quit breathing, it's a no brainer. My dr. put Brody on .7cc of zantac/our pharmacy does recommend flavoring it. and we do that every 8 hours and every bottle in between we do mylanta (1ml) Seems to be doing better...constipation is gone and baby is sleeping wonderfully! Thank goodness for this thread!
