Acid Reflux in Infants
December 22, 2014 - No Comments - permalink

Because infants can’t talk to tell you what is wrong, you as a parent must look for the signs.  This underdiagnosed problem is quite common since runny noses and spitting up is attributed to allergies.  This underdiagnosed condition leads to crankiness because the child is uncomfortable.  The key to symptoms I spitting up combined with a runny nose and an arched back in an effort to rid the reflux of acid.  Keep in mind babies do not have the same kind of bacteria as older children since the acclimation takes time. This is why parents should not feed table food to babies and should be weaned slowly off baby food to allow a variety of bacteria to take hold.
