In brief: All do some
Reflux vs reflux disease: all kids/adults reflux.
Burp once & u just had a dry one. Infants all do and it seems to increase a bit and peak naturally around 4m as they get stronger & generate more abdominal pressure with rolling & flexing. As long as they have no heartburn or other troublesome symptoms (barfing thru nose, wt loss) they grow out of it over time. Meds can help with symptoms.
