It is important to remember that reflux is a symptom and not a disease. If you suspect that your little one is reluxing definitely get it checked out, but don't medicate it into submission. Find someone who can tell you why the babe is having the problems. For example, dd had severe reflux issues due to a neck injury. SHe also had a torqued diaphragm which caused her to spit up just about everything she ate. After chiropractic care and craniosacral therapy she exhibited no reflux symptoms at all. I decided to go that route after my pediatrician tried to put her on meds, telling me that they wouldn't cure the reflux, she'd still reflux and have pain, it just wouldn't make it out of her mouth. Since medication couldn't fix it anyway I figured I'd find something that could.
