Takes time to improv: Kids on this rx generally have reflux that causes heartburn . This process will improve gradually as the meds begin to help, but continued wet burps are quite common & sometimes persist in spite of rx.As long as baby continues to gain weight, you can continue rx & have a recheck periodically.
