Re: When is the spitting up considered reflux??

It is considered a problem when baby is uncomfortable, or starts to lose weight. Both of my kiddos had very severe reflux, and my dd ended up on a feeding tube at one point. I WISH i had a seen a dr earlier. She is now 3, on meds , and doing GREAT! MOST kids outgrow reflux by age 1 and most are easily treated w/ meds. Reflux is becoming more and more recongnized, there are many meds that can be taken to make him feel better, and there are a lot of things you can do at home to help w/ the spitting up. (like keeping him elevated, small frequent feeds, etc)
