A baby with a chronic illness may need to have one or more
medications, possibly for long periods of time. Often these
medications are given at home by the parents or a caregiver.
The parents and/or the caregiver of a chronically-ill baby may
find times when he or she is under great stress. When this happens,
attention to detail can go lacking, and a resultant problem could
be improper dosage of medication given to the child.
However, you can take steps that can help you reduce errors in

Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) occurs when stomach contents come back up into the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach) during or after a meal. A ring of muscle at the bottom of the esophagus opens and closes to allow food to enter the stomach. This ring of muscle is called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). This sphincter opens to release gas (burping) after meals in normal infants, children, and adults. When the sphincter opens in infants, the stomach contents often go up the esophagus and out the mouth (spitting up or vomiting). GER can also occur when babies cough, cry, or strain. Most infants with GER are happy and healthy even though they spit up or vomit. Symptoms GER occurs often in normal infants. More than half of all babies experience reflux in the first 3 months of life. An infant with GER may experience these symptoms: Spitting Vomiting Coughing Irritability Poor feeding Blood in the stools Only a small number of infants have severe symptoms due to GER. Mo...
