Re: Reflux or something else? (Swallow study?)

They will have him 'eat' something that has a dye so they can track where it goes to see if he is refluxing or not. It would give you an answer but won't solve the problem. Zantac or other reflux meds won't stop the refluing it just makes it not so acidic so it isn't as painful. In general peds aren't usually concerned when the babies are still gaining weight and following the growth curve. Some times kiddos need a more broken down formula like nutramagin, progestamil or the like. Was your baby a preemie? Does he take all his feedings now? I was a little confused at the beginning when you are talking about a g tube. I'm guessing an NG when he was in the hospital right?
