Reflux in babies happens when food goes back up from the baby’s stomach. In healthy babies, reflux happens multiple times each day. Reflux is not a reason for concern as long as your kid is healthy, comfortable, and developing typically.
The illness, also known as gastroesophageal reflux (GER), is rarely dangerous and becomes less prevalent as a baby grows older. It’s uncommon for baby reflux to persist past 18 months.
Reflux in babies can occasionally be followed by alarming signs, including growth failure or weight loss. These symptoms may signal a medical issue, such as allergies, a digestive obstruction, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
