The National Health Service defines reflux as babies passively “spitting up” whatever they have just swallowed. Reflux is bringing up acid from the stomach into the throat, which can in some instances, be painful. It’s common in the first year of life, but by 12 months it does usually resolve.
Although it can be upsetting for parents, its important know that reflux is normal, and often the result of a baby’s underdeveloped food canal. Typical symptoms are:
- Frequent gagging
- Inability to relax
- Failure to put on weight
