Question: 5 year old with heartburn

 kabeebabee - Thu Dec 18, 2003 4:46 pm

My 5 year old has heartburn 3-4 times a week. She takes a rolaid and it goes away. Is it normal for a 5 year old to have heartburn like this. She doesnt eat spicy foods. I'm pretty sure its not the foods shes eating. It is usually right after she has eaten or drank something. Can you offer any advice on this? Should i be worried about this?
Thank You

It is fairly for young children to show signs of acid reflux. Talk to you pediatrician about possible remedies for her age.
