My interest in GER began in the early nineties when, as a pediatrician, I was uncomfortable passing babies off as having "colic." Since that time, I have replaced the term "colicky baby" with the more accurate description "the hurting baby," and it turns out that many so-called colicky babies actually suffer from this treatable condition. My favorite feature of this book is that it teaches what I believe is the best medical model for the treatment of GER: the pills-and-skills model. This is the model that I follow in my pediatric practice in treating infants and children with GER. Besides the "pills," or medications, that you will learn about to treat GER, you will also learn the many infant and childcare skills and feeding skills that will help alleviate this painful condition... I wish that every healthcare provider who counsels parents for GER will "prescribe" this book. Read More
