  Have a quick question for all of you. I suffer from GERD, IBS and a whole grocery list of other things. What I am wondering is if GERD is Hereditary? The reason I ask is because last night I was having a flare up after dinner and my 2 year old threw up in the shower for no apparent reason. It got me to thinking. He has done this a few other times and it always seems to be the same time I am having issues. May just be coincidence but thought I would ask. It usually just like he spits up not really a full on puke and it doesnt slow him down at all. Just seems strange that the few times it has happened it is also when I am not feeling well. How would you get a child this young tested???

Possibly the anatomy part is defective and is hereditary. There is plenty of research on pedatric GERD, I have even seen articles on testing infants with reflux.

Try searching pediatric gerd over on google and google scholar to see what comes up.

 I try to stay away from playing Google doctor, usually with little success..lol. But I will check that out. I pray everyday that my children dont have to grow up or develop any of my issues. It is a miserable life.

There is a link between cow's milk allergy and reflux in infants. It's not a good idea to make major dietary changes without professional support, but you could keep a food and symptom diary for both of you and see if that pinpoints any trigger foods.

All babies have some degree of LES laxity, so it could be just one of those things that passes with time. And some toddlers never throw up but others do so every time they have a sniffle, so I wouldn't leap to any conclusions yet, especially if the little fella is a good weight and otherwise well!

Discuss this with his doctor and see what they say. I knew a little boy who had a lot of trouble with his LES. He threw up half of everything he ate. He's now three and has stopped doing it for over a year now.
