Anyone have a Second baby after a Reflux/Gerd baby ? Did #2 have reflux also?

I had a Son with GERD/Reflux and he was on Prevacid till he was 2. Hubby and I want another baby but wondered about the chance of our second having reflux.

Anyone have #2 or #3 ? Did they also end up with reflux?

  • My older son had pretty bad reflux although his doctor never prescribed medication. We dealt with it with cereal in his formula and just dealing (he also had colic which was unrelated to his reflux). We went on to have 3 more kids after him. The girls (born 13 months and 4 1/2 years after him) showed no signs of reflux at all. Our youngest (now 6 months) son has it but it's not real bad and he seems to be growing out of it. He doesn't throw up half as much as he did as a newborn.
