In brief: 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.
