Calcium carbonate.: Try giving him some oral antacids, such as Tums or rolaids. These contain calcium carbonate, which neutralizes the hydrochloric acid made by the stomach. Do not exceed the recommended dose on the package of whatever you choose. If this is frequent, a pediatrician should evaluate your son for more serious digestive problems, which would require more extensive treatment.

Food: Food is the usual cause of heartburn, which is a burning sensation or sour taste in the back of your throat. Severe cases can be due to ulcers and can even lead to cancer of the esophagus. Avoidance of foods that cause heartburn is the primary recommendation but daily medication may be necessary if symptoms continue or occur during sleep.
