About this information

NICE guidelines provide advice on the care and support that should be offered to people who use health and care services.

This information explains the advice about reflux, regurgitation and heartburn in children of all ages that is set out in NICE guideline NG1. NICE has also produced information for the public on indigestion, heartburn and reflux in adults.

Does this information apply to me?

Yes, if you are:

  • a child or young person (up to ageĀ 18) with reflux, regurgitation or heartburn

  • a parent, carer or family member of a baby, child or young person with reflux, regurgitation or heartburn.

This information has been written for children and young people, parents, carers and family members, to help them understand the care that should be offered.
