    I cured my Acid Reflux or GERD by taking following homeopathic medicines. Go here https://tr.im/CureYourAcidReflux

    * Carbo Veg 200 (liquid): take 6 drops of Carbo Veg 200 in half cup of water after meals twice a day

    * Natrum Phos 6x (tablets): take 4 tablets of Natrum Phos 6x after meals twice a day (for 2 months only)

    https://tr.im/CureYourAcidReflux

    Drop Natrum Phos 6X after 2 months and continue with Carbo Veg 200.

    Note: Keep 30 minutes time difference between medicines and do not take anything after 30 minutes of taking medicines.

    my 2 year old son has acid reflux. His father also has it. His doctor said it is worse in children but will get better as they get older. Do not feed him/her things like spaghetti for dinner and certain acidy juices. Or anything with tomato sauces. Basically what will happen is he or she will wake up in the middle of the night or early in the morning throwing up and it will have a nasty smell, they will not have a fever. You can give them watered down gatorade and cheereos

    They are VERY irritable - especially when layed down after a meal. They cry is you rub their bellies b/c they're sensitive. Their breath may smell bad. They refuse to eat.

    There's a lot of different symptoms. Only his pediatrician will know for sure. So, if you suspect acid reflux, take him in for a check up.

    One of my twins had it when he was about 3-4mos. old. Symptoms that he exhibited were arching of his back (dr. says that's a big indicator), he spit up a lot and frequently, and crankiness for what is generally a very happy baby.

    When you take your baby to the doctor, they will give him baby Zantac. The stuff smells AWFUL, but my son seemed to really like it. And it worked!

    Good luck!

    not acid reflux but its something else. usually involves puking of food a little bit after eating and crying. damn i am drawing a brain fart. not sure how young your baby is but try a different formula that will be soft on the tummy. i had to do that with mine..oh Colic is what its called. if your using formula the iron in it is too much for the babies tum to break down. so in return you get a irritably, crying...puking baby :(

    My friends daughter who is 7 months now has acid reflux. We just had to take her to the doctor because she kept throwing up more then usual and it looked like gelly kind of mixed with formula..so it was a gooey texture coming out whereas regular spit up is jus the milk mostly. you can just tell the difference. anyway her meds just needed to be up more. they had to up her dosage. Just look out for a lot of spitting up and it looking different then normal.

    My son has reflux. We took him to the docs because he was constantly crying, wanting to eat but screaming while he was, constant spitting up, coughing, gagging, arching his back, etc......it just wasn't his normal days....We actually thought it was Colic, but it was reflux! He has been on Zantac since he was a month old.....He has been MUCH better!!!!!! If you think it might be reflux, call the docs!
