Re: Growing out of GERD

DS1 had reflux. The Drs said it would get better when he started being more upright - though when he started sitting up the vomiting actually worsened because of the pressure on his stomach. When he was standing and walking it got a ton better.
He is not still on meds - we only ever gave him zantac, and weaned him off it when things seemed to settle with him standing. But he does still have issues with it from time to time. When he is stressed out he'll complain about heartburn, and he can't eat many sweets at all without having some reflux - I've heard from a lot of adult sufferers that sweets are a common trigger.

I think most kids do outgrow it, to some extent, but when is different for all of them.
