Hey - try taking them off of anything that has gluten in it - i.e. breads, pasta, anything that contains wheat rye barley. Sounds restrictive but it isn't that bad.

I agree that it is more than likely a food allergy. Children that young typically don't get acid reflux.

Gluten allergies are genetic and can cause everything from ear infections to acid reflux. Do a Google search on the subject - you'll be amazed.

Hey OP
how about you give a little info...like when did the symptoms begin...what's the child's diet like...was the child breast fed or bottle fed...what seems to trigger these acid reflux attacks, etc?

Acid reflux is among the latest diagnosis from pediatricians. It's a new market to sell Rx for little ones with acid reflux. I'd recommend you check into the PH of this child's system. I'll bet it's outta wack......OR.....nah.....couldn't be that ol' "introducing a new vaccine" thing......

vinegar- and yes, acid reflux needs more acid vinegar because antacids stop acid production, then much more acid is produced, anyway.

I would say alkaline foods. Also, papaya and pineapple have natural digestive enzymes that can help. I would try to buy fresh pineapple. Peppermint is good for acidity. A stick of peppermint gum for a quick fix?

No dairy, no sodas, papaya enzymes and elevate the top of the bed on some blocks so he/she sleeps with the head higher than the feet. Some trigger point work right at the base of the sternum into the muscle there when he/she is having an attack...

apples have an excellent stomach tamer...but no greasy foods, skip the happy meals, white meats, lots of fruits and veggies.

Had an infant with GE reflux due to the muscles at the base of the esophagus being underdeveloped, critter almost died from aspirating...had to do all of the above plus learn infant CPR keep the lovely on a apnea monitor and upright all the time. Critter outgrew it but it was a very tense first few nights when we stopped using the monitor.

Old family recipe, ginger and anise tea before and after any meals. If the baby is over one (mandatory modern day pediatric disclaimer), you may sweeten this with honey. Of course, back in the olden days, granny gave me the honey when I was barely 6 months and lo and behold, here I bees...

It has to do with the childs sleeping habits, tonite, try laying child down on back, take his/her pillow and pin each side overlapping their head to the bed causing something like a U shape, with the childs head being the bottom of the U. Hold for approx 10 minutes, this will alleviate all symptoms. Permanantly.
 Quoting: Richard Fondler 441723


wtf Dude you have some serious issues!


OP Could the child be lactose intolerant? Possibly try to cut out all dairy, and use just soy products.

Both of my little ones had this problem when they were little, but eventually grew out of it.

Was the acid reflux diagnosed by a doctor? Is it acid reflux or just reflux?

Ive never heard of the honey and SIDS but I do know that you are'nt supposed to give babies honey, because honey has bacteria in it that an adults stomach acids can eliminate, but a baby doesnt have enough acid in their stomach to do this.

Im not sure if a two yr old is more capable of handling honey, but I wouldnt, just to be on the safe side :/

Yes this is wonderful advice! Do watch though to make sure that the baby is on time with the developmental milestones.If not get him tested ASAP!!!!! It IS unusual to have weak muscles anywhere for a baby and there can be many culprits some of which are genetic. My step grandson had this, along with many other problems, AND a mother in denial that DID NOT HELP!!!!, and when he was older was diagnosed with Fragile X syndrome. The earlier specialists become involved in the care of these little ones the better. Early intervention is key!This baby has made incredible progress in all the devepmental areas and has no trouble at all now with his GI system. Good luck with your little one hf! It is such a worry! hf

A two year ols should not have acid reflux. Milk is
a perfect natural antacid (calcium). Gluten girl may be
onto something, cut out the wheat, barley, rye and all
products containing gluten for awhile.

If your 2 year old actually has acid reflux, get the child to a doctor immediately. That should not be happening. Seek medical help.

Re: what naturally would help a 2 year old with bad acid reflux ?
A very good doctor save my 2yo kid from reflux with this simple method:

- One spoon of Maalox 5 times per day
- No drink and no fruit and no sweets
- Solid food

In two days the reflux is over. But you must continue the method for one month. The kid will be free from reflux forever.

The method is scientifically validated. Can be used with all children. Here in the EU is well known.

The young kids have reflux because they have an internal tiny valve (dunno in english) which sometimes doesn't close properly. Maalox and dry diet help to fix it.

Don't bring your kid to doctors giving him strong medicines or horrible tests.

Hope this helps.

Could easily be that he/she is eating too much in one sitting.

Give him/her more time to digest. Spread out feeding times and give him/her less each feeding time.
