SPITTING UP, INFANT REFLUX
AND GERD - HUG-A-BIB BABY BIBS & CLIPPY CLOTH BURP CLOTHS
Spitting up, also called
gastroesophageal reflux, GER, reflux, is common in babies and is usually
deemed normal. About 40% of young babies spit up
sometimes, since their digestive systems are immature,
making it easier for the stomach contents to flow back
up into the esophagus. The peak age for spitting
up is 4 months.
Doctors used to call this an "under-developed
stomach valve" which is what my daughter was diagnosed
with. Babies spit up when they've eaten too much
or when they've swallowed too much air while feeding.
Spitting up usually occurs when babies burp. It can also
happen when your baby is drooling. It usually
resolves itself by 6 months to 1 year of age.
A small percentage of babies experience discomfort and other
complications due to reflux - this is called Gastroesophageal Reflux
Disease (GERD). Babies might have this disorder if they spit
up or vomit often, scream or cry for hours, refuse
feedings, or don't gain weight. Approximately 1 in
300 infants will present signs and symptoms of GERD and
it is more common in children with neurological
impairments. This condition requires a doctors
care. GERD is particularly common in
preemies (due to their immaturity) and in babies with other health
problems. GERD usually improves by 12-24 months.
There is a wealth of information on this conditions both on the
internet and at your local library or bookstore.
