Reflux In Infants

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

The esophagus is television that brings food from your mouth to your stomach. His or her stomach materials come back up into the esophagus if your baby has reflux. Another name for reflux is gastroesophageal reflux. Babies may have GERD if their symptoms stop them from feeding or if the reflux lasts greater than 12 to 14 months. In infants that have reflux, the lower esophageal sphincter muscle is not completely developed and lets the stomach materials back up the esophagus. Once his/her sphincter muscle completely develops, your child needs to no longer spew up. In children who have GERD, the sphincter muscular tissue ends up being weak or unwinds when it should not. About half all babies spew up many times a day in the first 3 months of their lives. GERD is additionally common in more youthful infants. However by their first birthday celebration, only 10% of infants still have GERD.
