Reflux Issues

Reflux Issues

My 4 week old daughter has horrible reflux. She is currently taking 15mg of Prevacid a day and that has only helped some. We are now adding rice cereal to her bottles and going to also give her 1 ml of Carafate 3 times a day. Has anyone heard of Carafate? I am unfamiliar with it and was wondering if anyone has had success with it?? Or do you have any other recommendations that might help her reflux?? I am keeping my hopes up that my little girl feels better soon.

  1. Carafate is often used to coat the esophagus and stomach, hopefully providing your little one with some relief. I would recommend seeing a pediatric GI specialist if you have not done so already. And feel free to “Ask Bundoo” if you have any specific questions. Hang in there – having a newborn is exhausting enough, but a little one who is miserable from reflux is not only hard on her but also on the whole family!
