Thanks! Will try rennies too.

Milk or fruit Flavoured Rennies, I cannot bear Gaviscon or anything minty.

Peppermint tea is fantastic

I had horrific heartburn from 16 weeks with DS. This was not resolved by my 6+ pints a day milk craving!

Rennies were the only thing that helped, the green pack (spearmint?) which came in convenient (weekly for me) boxes of 96. I still cannot bear Gaviscon.

Thanks! I will try milk and almonds and see how that goes. Anyone tried banana?

Almonds. Or a teaspoon of vinegar in a glass of water. Apparently bicarb soda can fix it too, haven't tried that one myself though.

Ricepudding saved me when I had the most terrible heartburn used to be up all night- midwife said to try it and it really worked

I second the milk. I have found that if I eat chocolate it makes it worse so I have to avoid that now (booooooo!)

I found milk worked better than anything from the chemist. Try and sleep propped up if possible.

Liquorice root from health food shops (the stick like stuff) Break off a half inch and chew until it has no taste, then discard the waste.

Yoghurt or ice cream

Yoghurt! I always took a couple of pots up to have during the night when it kept me awake!

Milk is good

Hi,

The dreaded heartburn is back at 22 weeks sad

Which foods have helped relieve your heartburn? Any tips or suggestions? I hate Gaviscon and would prefer not to go down that route if possible.

Thanks!
