Customer Question

My 4 year old son has been burping a lot over the past 4 days. He almost never burps, now it is one burp about every few minuets. He's eating fine and does not complain of a stomach ache.

Has there been a change in his diet? More gassy vegetables, more soda, spicy foods? Has he ever had reflux before? Is there a family history of reflux in the family?
Have you tried any mylanta or maalox? You can give 1-2 tsp to help.
