How to Reduce Your Baby’s Reflux | Parents

Gastroesophageal reflux is a condition in which foods or liquids in the stomach leak back into the esophagus If your baby is showing signs of reflux such as spitting up frequently, consider talking to your doctor about which formula is best for your baby

Sometimes switching to a hypoallergenic or lactose- free option, can help relieve reflux He may also suggest a formula made with rice cereal added in Keeping your baby in a sitting position during feedings and for at least 20 minutes afterwards and burping partway through mealtime may help relieve some of the discomfort associated with reflux Your baby may also benefit from smaller more frequent feedings Some babies with reflux naturally prefer to eat this way

Others get cranky if they don't get their food feeding at once After a few days though, your little one should adjust to this new schedule So, try to stick with it It's also best to make sure your baby's diaper and clothing isn't too tight because it can put pressure on her tummy and make her especially irritable If your baby's reflux isn't improving or seems to be getting worse, talk to your pediatrician
