My 6 month has GERD and has been coughing soo bad lately.. He is also super hoarse. I just want to know if any other moms that are dealing/ or had this problem with your baby. I feel so bad because their isn't anything I can give him to slow down the coughing.

Yes, we did just see a GI last week and bc he was fighting them so much. A little got into his lungs so they had to stop. We are also going to an ENT in Dec.

Depending on the medication he takes for the GERD, if he has gained weight, you may need to have the doc adjust the dose. You could also try a different medication. Sometimes one will work better than another. Do you see a GI specialist in addition to the pediatrician?

My son has had GERD all his life and he is now 2. He has been on meds all his life. Are you nursing or using formula? I found when i was nursing it help to eat bland food. It stunk for me but he didn't throw up or cough as much. My son doesn't cough, sadly through his is so aggressive it causes him to stop breathing if it is a bad attack.

Yes, he is on reflux meds! does our daughter have a bad cough? my son has a horrible one. I bought a cool mist humidifier and it helps! Does she sound congestion all in her throat?
