Infants with Acid Reflux

     I am in the process of completing my pediatric boards re-certification. This process ensures that doctors keep up with current medical recommendations and put in place steps to improve medical care within their practice. One of the activities I have been working on focuses on acid reflux, especially in infants. One of my sons had acid reflux during his first year of life.
     As part of my focus on acid reflux in infants I have found some good resources for parents with infants with acid reflux. I want to share them with you. This is a link to from GI Kids about coping when your infant has reflux. There is lots of good information here. Another good resource is here, also from GI Kids, that includes a checklist of common symptoms. GI Kids main page on Acid Reflux can be found here. My own handout (protocol) on Acid Reflux is here on our website, Hilliard Peds.
     I hope this information is helpful. If you have questions or concerns about acid reflux and your child, call during routine office hours.
