Im a lurker of your blog- we were on Webmd TTCJSO at the same time.

Congrats on your baby boy!

I wouldn't normally comment, but I have GERD, and wanted to let you know my experience with it. I'm not sure what can be done for it with babies, but I pretty much control it with diet, nothing acidic, not alot of bread. It can be pretty painful at times, It comes on like heartburn but I always think that it's probably for me similar to what a heart attack feels like. I get dizzy and nauseous, and just have a terrible pain in my chest. Since I changed my diet I hardly have the "attacks" anymore and if I do I drink a glass of milk real quick, and that usually subsides it right away. My doctor also prescribed me prescription zantac, but since I changed my diet I haven't needed it.

Congrats again on the birth of your little one.
