My 4 week old daughter ( weight : 8 lb 8 oz) is on Prevacid and Pepcid. We started with 7.5 mg Prevacid in morning at 2 weeks but dint help so added 2 mg Pepcid at night. Despite this when daughter has 3 weeks old she started aversion . After Pepcid we started another 7.5 mg Prevacid just a day ago. So total she is on 15 mg Prevacid and 2 mg Pepcid. Her pediatrics is out of town and was hesitant to give her this high dose after consulting with Gi who we don’t see until 7/29. Luckily the other pediatrician we saw in our regular peds absence incaresed the dose to tackle the aversion.
Is this dies too high for her weight?
Daughter is given expressed BM and I have been dairy and other acidic foods free since she was a week old. We have also tried probiotics . We have older daughter who had reflux which developed into severe aversions to food. She s 6 years now and doing great with food but first 3 years were bad. She only sleep fed the first year and so we are trying to prevent this in our newborn .
