What to Eat When Your Infant Has Reflux

by heather
What can you eat as a breast-feeding mom with a baby with reflux? When we were in the worst period (for us it was 2 to almost 5 months) of my baby's reflux, in addition to increasing medications I was very careful about what I ate. (Keep in mind the list of things that can aggravate reflux)  Occasionally I would snap because I was so hungry I was going insane and I would eat a brownie or a bowl of ice cream.
