  • Mylanta is safe; eat small bland meals and sit upright after eating. Sips of water can help.

  • I also used tums, they didnt work that well. If its really bad your OB can prescribe a low dose zantac, its safe for the baby.

  • Ive been taking Tums daily and now they dont work. I have switched to Mylanta and it is working so far. If my body gets used to this as well then I will switch to pepcid. All are safe

  • I've heard that milk or yogurt help. Personally, water makes it worse for me. Drinking coke helps me though (and my husband, lol). GL!
