  • Does he drink a lot of soda or eat a lot of acidic foods?

  • Maybe he is lactose intolerant, or drinking soda. Also, if he swallows too much air when he eats.

  • If this is new, maybe he is coming down with a stomach bug.

  • He is a pretty good eater....he will have cereal for breakfast and then a healthy lunch at school. When he is at home he has a normal dinner....not many sweets or dairy, if anything you might be able to blame him for having too much juice. He may be eating too fast, he is a growing boy and loves food, lol.

  • We are going to give it another week and see. Might do the yogurt idea in case it is yeast. Will keep the Prevacid going too and see if eventually it helps. So bummed my lil' man has these couple of is so stressful on the mommy who is not able to put a cap on it and call it 'this' or 'that'. :(
