Patient Comments: GERD in Infants and Children - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your infant's or child's GERD?

Comment from: gscott, 0-2 Male (Patient) Published: March 07

I am a first-time mother of 3-month-old Ethan who was diagnosed with GERD when he was 2 weeks. He would spit up 1 to 2 ounces of formula with each feeding, and he would cry erratically either right after or an hour in from feeding. This has brought on his wheezing, wet hiccups, nasal congestion and such. We are scared! There were a couple of times when he choked. He currently is on Prevacid, but we're not seeing much relief yet.
