Question for moms who have/have had toddlers with reflux...If your toddler's reflux is generally well-controlled with meds, do you still avoid foods that are typically considered "acidic"? Or do you feed your child whatever you want?
I would like to introduce tomatoes/tomato sauce into Kylie's diet - it would make things so much easier - but I've been paralyzed over the decision to do it for days. I am afraid it will make her reflux worse. And, because she is so little (13 mos old), it's all still such a guessing game - she can't tell me, so if she starts waking up at night or starts eating less, I have to try and decipher the reason from among several different possibilities.
What do you guys do when it comes to acidic foods? If you are avoiding any foods, will you please share which ones?
Also, just as a survey, will you please share what dose of PPI your toddlers are currently on? I know that babies metabolize PPIs faster than older kids and adults so some babies are on high doses - I'm wondering when most people start tapering down the higher dose of PPI.
