Reflux precautions

a complex of measures, which are used both as

a prophylaxis and a therapy of GER.


  •  Diet (as above). 
  •  Eating smaller portions of food, frequent feeding of infants with smaller portions of breast  milk or formula.
  • Position in a bed (in a crib, for infants) 30 degree head side up.  Holding an infant for (at least) 30 min. upright after a feeding, and avoiding a horizontal position after a meal for 2 hours in older children, and 30 min. in infants.


Surgical therapy:   is rarely needed, but in some cases of severe GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), unresponsive to a full range of conservative measures, surgery may be necessary.
