Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (Child) [English] Permalink Public

“Reflux” means “backwards movement.” The esophagus is the tube that leads from the mouth to the stomach. So gastroesophageal reflux is the backwards movement of food and acid from the stomach into the esophagus. Burping, and spitting up are common after a baby feeds. Most babies spit up to some degree without discomfort and it usually fades by the first or second year. This is called gastroesophageal reflux(without “disease”). Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when there are symptoms of discomfort, or poor weight gain.Older children and adolescents may also get GERD. Audio available. (English)
