'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

I have a 2 year old with severe GERD. He is in prevacid and zantac 2xday since 6 weeks old.

Thanks for the add. I have a 2 year old with severe GERD. He is in prevacid and zantac 2xday since 6 weeks old. Just looking for some helpful suggestions.

My 3 1/2 year old daughter has severe GERD also and has been on meds since 6 weeks old. You've probably tried everything her gastroenterologist has suggested with our kids suffering from such a young age. Diet helps my daughter along with her medication and bed elevated.

Thought we had it controlled but it has recently gotten much worse. Meds no longer working as well. Chris Nfamily- How do you keep your daughter from rolling to the foot of the bed?? Shirley- I'm so happy he's reflux free!

Tara Blanchard , Just a thought. Depending on the age of your child you may be able to use a weighted blanket. This is used on children with Autisim. It might work. Just a thought now.

I do not understand how little ones have acid reflux.

My daughter's bed isn't elevated very much because she does roll down too much when it is. I keep repositioning her during the night to help her sleep as much as possible. It's hard when they're this young. I hope your son has a great gastroenterologist like my daughter does at Children's Hospital.
