COMMON CHILDHOOD ILLNESSES AND CONDITIONS


GE REFLUX

GE Reflux is spitting or vomiting because the opening between the esophagus (food tube) and stomach doesn't quite close completely. A mild form is common in newborns and resolves by about 6 months of age when your child starts to sit up and eat food.

HOME CARE:

  • Feed smaller amounts of food
  • Wait about 2 1/2 hours between feedings
  • Cut back on pacifier time
  • Burp your child several times during each feeding
  • Avoid pressure on the abdomen
  • Place baby in an upright position for a half hour (30 minutes) after meals

  • CALL YOUR DOCTOR DURING OFFICE HOURS IF:
  • Your baby isn't gaining weight normally
  • Your baby has been walking for more than 3 months and is still spitting up

  • CALL YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY IF:
  • Any blood is seen in the spit-up material
  • The spitting up causes your child to choke or cough
