In brief: Reflux is common
Reflux occurs when you bring something up from the stomach into the mouth.
It is universal.Any baby who burps or spits has natural reflux & some have it bad enough to loose weight & experience heartburn symptoms. Symptomatic reflux is gerd & i see many that peak in their symptoms around 4-5 mo. After they sit or stand most of the day it tends to improve.Meds help some.
