Heartburn issues?: Short answer: avoid spicy & greasy foods, tomato-foods, mints, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, chocolate, late night meals before bed. Long answer: distinguish acid versus non-acid causes of reflux & rule out motility problems of the esophagus & stomach. You may want 1st to try behavior & diet changes above, assess response to otc acid blockers (h2's are weaker than ppi's), & see GI doc if persistent.

Very likely: You seem to be describing acid reflux. Treatment usually starts with an otc anatacid. Ask you pediatrician which one is best for you.
