As most mothers already know reflux is normal (it is called physiological reflux) and it happens to more than 50% of babies. They vomit excess milk immediately after feedings (they do not express pain), and this is because the babies’ gastric system is not yet fully formed.
The sphincter (the valve that exists between the stomach and the esophagus) is still forming, and it is loose and cannot close entirely when the liquid/milk passes through it causing it to return. With maturity, as the baby is able to firm his head and stay seated, this situation starts to improve (between 6 to 12 months).
The peak of incidence is close to 4 months of age, and most regurgitate once, twice a day without showing another symptom, which is normal. These babies are generally healthy, and most of them are normal after six months of age. But if the baby vomits several times a day after breastfeeding, in large quantities, he may have gastroesophageal reflux disease. It can manifest itself in boys and girls in the first days of life.
The most common symptoms are frequent vomiting, pain or colic sometimes signalled by crying, choking and coughing, weight loss, impaired development, wheezing, pneumonia and ear infections, which are inflammations in the ears.
