That's a wives tale I have had horrible heartburrn with my kids and they were born bald.

Actually they have proven that's its not a myth. It's just more likely to have hair. Not all of them will but I believe it was 70% or so will have a head of hair.

It's just an old wives tale, but it was true for me lol. For me, nothing really worked after using it fro a couple weeks, but the best thing I did find was a generic brand of Zyntac I bought at Family Dollar (if you live in the US). They have 2 different kinds of store brand acid reducer, but you have to look at the active ingredients and it has to be the exact same as Zyntac. I think it starts with an "R".

TUMS helps. It's not just for stomach aches. They're gross, but when I get heartburn really bad it calms it down.

i personally like tums, but they don't help....at all!
like I said, nothing does..... and I'm thinking shes going to have a head of hair because when I was born my dad said "Damn she has a fro" and I believe my boyffriend had a head full of hair as well!! &&I really have NO IDEA what to do, the milk doesn't work, anything....//:

Myth- I had awful heartburn when pregnant with ny daughter but she hardly had any hair. Also gaviscon cool flavour tablets worked so well for me hope this helps. xx

I had bad heartburn too. I went in for my 35 weeks Ultrasound and the tech told me my baby got hair.

A friend of mine had bad heartburn and her daughter had a head full of hair. Ive been starting to get bad heartburn lately, like constant even ifi haven't eaten something recent. So im wondering if my son is going to have hair! :)
