Brandon has reflux. I think it is pretty common with FTT. I was wondering how many other FTT kids have reflux.

Is this something easily recognizable? Burping, etc.? I don't think Lexi has reflux. We are off to Children's Hospital in September.

Usually spitting up a lot but not always. Sometimes they don't actually spit up they just have reflux that comes up their esophagus. It may cause baby to have tummy problems after eating. Brandon had apnea as a baby and from reading on the subject I think that his apnea may have been related to the reflux. He would need to have a GI swallow test for them to diagnose it. Basically they swallow barium (I think its barium) and watch to see if it comes back up on an xray. With Brandon it was something you could clearly see on the xray so I think its pretty easy to diagnose.
