Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
I was just wanting you to know i was thinking a lot about your post. I had remembered reading about symptoms of eating and acid reflux and something was on the edge of my mind but i couldn't quite place what I wanted to tell you. I did some searching through my research sites and found this:

although comfort eating may be rare in GERD ,it is common in peptic ulcers (caused by GERD). I just wanted to let you know this may be something you want to ask your Dr. about.

i have been thinking a lot about this b/c my emily is constantly complaining that she is hungry even though she has just eaten. (like today i gave her cereal for breakfast, she said "still hungry" i gave her a banana, then strawberries and crackers. an hour later she said hungry, to the point of tears and i made her eggs, she said "still hungry" i gave her turkey and cucumber and it went on...) I have recently taken her off prevacid and i think this might be the cause.

i hope this information is helpful to you :)
Check with your
