In brief: Nothing specific

All babies/todlers/children have some reflux.
You can't burp without it. If it caises no symptoms it remains silent. Heartburn in the absence of spitup is not silent reflux. Most kids go through childhood with there silent reflux and never have any issues later on. As older teens or adults, their diet and lifestyle choices help determine whether this issue returns and becomes symptomatic.
