    I've just weaned my DD "successfully" at 6 months I thought the same thing but it's hard to say each bub's reflux is different. She was on losec from 3 months. I tried weaning her a few times and it was horrid .... Until now

    DS was on Zantac from 4 weeks then switched to Losec at about 15 weeks when we reached the maximum dose of Zantac and it was no longer helping. He was on 10 mg a day. I tried weaning him off it a few times from about 12 months unsuccesfully, but stopped it at about 17 months and have not had any issues since. Just in time for DD to be born and start on Losec at 4 weeks She is also on 10mg a day. I think it really depends on the individual child. A friend of mine was able to wean off all meds much earlier than my DS was.

    Our DD has been on Losec since she was 15 days old. Initially 10 mg then 15 mg now 20 mg at 21 months. We have been under a paedatrician the whole time but now we are seeing a gastro pad in April. I don't think she will be off it anytime soon, and we suspect the gastro paed will be doing a endoscopy with biopsy.

    In saying that i do know alot of people who have only needed to give it to their child for a few months.

    Every baby is very different. For us Losec was a God send!
