PT – How to help if your Baby has Reflux
Reflux is the medical term for when some of the stomach contents comes back up from the stomach and travels up the oesophagus (tube from the stomach to the mouth). The stomach contents are acidic which can cause irritation and discomfort. This can make your baby vomit or regurgitate milk – they may cry for long periods, arch their backs and refuse feeds.
