    Default Does having one baby with reflux make you more likely to have another with reflux?

    My DS had reflux and I'm wondering if I'm more likely to have another bub with reflux because my first had it???

    Same!! I was fully prepared for DD to have the pain and the chucking, but NO it didn't happen! I actually thought there was something wrong with her when she WASN'T chucking! lol

    And not only did DD get to wear the same outfit all day but so did I!

    All of mine have it to a different degree

    Girls had it mildly & didnt need medicating, just mylanta when needed.

    DS is a whole different ball game, his has reflux disease (GORD) & will never be reflux free. Some days/weeks/months its managed, others its not

    We have a feeling DS's reflux has been inherited from DH &/or my nan.

    I had one with reflux, one without. BUT we did have one reflux episode, as soon as that happened, I came off of dairy - it was like someone had flicked a switch! She was back to my happy baby
    DS also suffers from CMPI, we didn't recognise it then though
    When I asked our paed at DD's 6 week checkup and hip check, he actually said to me, I'll see you in a few weeks then
    No thanks

    Its a bit hit and miss with reflux, but some doctors believe there to be a genetic link through families.

    DD1 had absolutely none, DD2 had GORD, hers started heavily but luckily I knew what it was instantly and she grew out of it rather quickly. Funny thing is both have had dairy intolerances, DD2 from 7mth to 14, and DD2 from 2 months.

    Yep...I was going to say the same thing.
    I have 7 and 2 have had severe reflux leading to failure to thrive.
    Two of my others where mild happy chuckers.
    The other three nothing.

    (if I don't laugh, I'll cry, I'm sure you all get it!)

    I'm due in June, after having an awful time with ds and his reflux (still medicated and on a horribly restricted diet), and I am terrified (as is my husband), of another refluxer. I can tell you now, if this one does, that WILL be the last child!!!! !!! lol

    My doctor did tell me that having one, does increase the chances of having another, so to take that on board before TTC.

    In the same breathe, I read research, that if you have 1, the chances of having another are low, so go figure! lol

    All I can think, is that I will no which paths to follow early this time, it took us such a long time to get it all diagnosed with J, I certainly won't be listening to a GP this time! referal, referal, referal!
