8 Year Old Daughter with Acid Reflux - Questions About Remedies

Posted by K on 03/28/2009

Hi,

I was reading, on your posting, about using baking soda and apple cider vinegar for acid reflux. I have an eight year old daughter, who has had reflux since birth. It has gotten better since she was a year old. I was hoping that if would go away on it's own, but it has not.

Do you know of any remedies for children? Is there some way to make it more palatable? I have trouble ingesting "odd" things with an empty stomach. It usually does not stay down. Could you mix or chase the baking soda/vinegar mix with broth or something?

Thanks
K

Children seemed to like the fizz in a lemon and baking soda remedy. That's 2 tablespoon of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water. Because of their small size at 1/2 the weight of a small adult 100 pounds, they can drink even just 1/4 of that.
