    Hello, Sorry about that. There is a regimen used in the treatment of peptic ulcer most especially if H. pylori is identified. Considering your baby, you need to see your Doctor for the regimen and instructions on how you will go about it. The food to avoid: Spicy foods, peperish food, caffeine, smoking and alcohol. Avoid going on an empty stomach for too long, eat regularly even if it's in bits. Avoid NSAIDs when you want to take analgesics. Hope this helps? Take care
