Reflux is normal: Reflux is the term used for spitting up. All babies will reflux to some extent and this is normal. Babies will reflux formula more than breast milk, which is more easily digested. As long as the infant is otherwise feeding well, appears satisfied afterwards, and is wetting several diapers a day, there is no concern. If the reflux is excessive, forceful, or green-tinged, see your pediatrician.
