In more severe cases where GERD is diagnosed, a physician can easily guide you through a treatment plan. AND YES, there are ways to treat heartburn and acid reflux symptoms that are safe for both you and your baby (See also: Acid reflux in babies and children) without the need for a house call doctor.
