Anti-Reflux Drugs May Be Overprescribed in Infants

positioned so that their bodies are at least somewhat upright after eating will help to lessen reflux symptoms. Another critical thing parents can do, he said, is make sure that children aren't exposed to secondhand smoke, which can increase reflux symptoms.

Keljo said there are certain signs that indicate your baby should be evaluated by a specialist. If your child throws up blood, a substance that looks like coffee grounds, or if there's green in the vomit, your child should be seen right away. Also, if your child isn't gaining weight or is even losing weight, if you can hear significant choking sounds, if there's a chronic cough or hoarseness that accompanies regurgitation, your child should see a gastroenterologist, he said.
