Good luck with the GI! Ariana is still battling reflux at almost 15 months (and I'm pulling my hair out[;)]). She had the upper GI a couple months ago. Her appt was for 9am, so we just tried to keep her occupied. They filled her bottle with the barium and she only drank maybe 25% and it was enough for them to see. The only hard part was that DD hates being laid down and held, so she fought hard. Only one of us could be in the room too, so DH stayed to help and I went behind the glass to stand with the rest of the techs. She's been on Prevacid for months now and that seems to be her wonder drug. We tried Zantac right away, and that didn't work. Then omeprazole, which didn't work. Right now we are trying to make the change to milk, but it's not going so well. Once we get her over to milk, we can try to wean off the meds. My girlfriends DD had reflux too and was able to just go off her meds at 11 months. I'm jealous of that![;)]
Good luck and let us know how things go!!![:D]
