Why is my baby's reflux persisting?

Needs time: Reflux is a condition that children must outgrow. I usually tell parents that if you do nothing they will outgrow it by a year. Once you introduce food it often improves. It can worsen between 6-8 months as the child gets more mobile and "shakes himself up" with crawling.
I have had great success with chinese medicine helping reflux. Check in your area for practitioners.

Hoarseness: In cases of severe reflux, one can develop hoarseness. However, most of the time the acid does not travel high enough to reach the vocal cords.

At what age does reflux peak in babies and when does it resolve?

2-4 months: Reflux and spitting up peaks for most babies in the second month of life (contrary to the popular notion that babies spit up a lot when they are first born). More than 50% of 2-month olds spit up, versus less than 10% of 12-month olds. As you can see, reflux gradually improves for most babies over the first year of life.

Maybe: Every person is different in their triggers for ace reflux and i would look at how your body reacts to it. There are some reports of cinnamon helping gerd and certainly it may trigger the symptoms in others.
