These are the symptoms: vomiting; posseting; regurgitation (vomiting and spilling is not always present, there is silent reflux where the stomach contents will only come partially up the oesophagus); repeated hiccoughs; sleep disturbances; irritability and excessive crying; failure to thrive; feeding interruptions; feeding problems- either comfort feeding or food refusal; screams during or after feeds; back arching; appears to be in pain; repeated coughing; recurrent chest infections. Not all of these symptoms will be present. If you suspect that your child may have gastric reflux, then seek the help of a health professional. For support email [email protected]

I contacted a naturopath for all information so it is accurate. I use natural remedies alongside prescribed midicines, it works well.
