What treatment would my help my baby's acid reflux?

This quiz is designed to help you decide which medication(s)your baby would benefit from in treating his/her acid reflux. You can take this quiz to help you determine the best treatment plan regardless of whether your baby has been on several different medications or whether this is your first time even considering acid reflux as a possible cause for your baby's problems.

As always, this is not intended as medical advice, but just what we would do given your particular set of circumstances. It is always best to discuss possible treatment options with your child's pediatrician. These are tools that you can use to learn about the possible medication options and discuss what you want to try with your baby's doctor. If you decide to use OTC medications for your baby, please know that you alone are responsible for your baby's safety and appropriate dosing, etc.
