    4 month old with acid reflux
    An_255791 posted:
    My 4 month old has had reflux since birth. We are starting to give her food and I was wondering if it would be better for me to make my own baby food or if store bought is ok. she loves peas and is ok with them, she also likes carrots but she spits up more with the carrots. I want to start sweet potatoes but I am nervous if she will spit up.

    This is something that you should discuss with your daughter's pediatrician. You want to make sure that she is getting adequate nutrition and discussing your plans with your doctor can insure that what you feed her will be beneficial for her health and growth. Here is some more information on acid reflux in infants in case your are interested.

    Best wishes,
