Babies get heartburn, too!
Ask for Help
This is not the time to feel self-conscious because your beautiful, much-anticipated baby has turned into a screaming, milk-spitting creature. Ask your friends and family for help. Encourage them to take the other children for an outing, to sit with the baby for even one hour so you can have a respite, or fix you an occasional dinner.
There also is a national non-profit support group called PAGER—Pediatric/Adolescent Gastroesophageal Reflux Association. Started by parents whose children had GERD, PAGER offers information and support to parents, patients, and physicians. You can contact them at www.reflux.org or by calling 301-601-9541.
