Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that your 2-year-old son is still suffering from severe reflux. This is a difficult condition to control in adults and even more so in young children. Using the correct diet for him as an individual can help a great deal and I would urge you to consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will assist you with a diet that avoids foods that can potentially worsen the reflux (any spicy or fatty foods, drinks containing gas, etc) and also avoids all peanuts, but still promotes normal growth and development.
Do take the lad to a dietitian ASAP
