Infantile reflux

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. Christopher Ayers is on the case of infantile rexlus.

Typical symptoms of reflux in an infant include crying after eating especially when laying flat, arching of the back and vomiting for up to two hours after feeding.

You can prevent infant reflux by frequent burping, having a lower flow nipple so that formula or breast milk is not swallowed too fast, leave head elevated for at least 20 minutes after feeding and allow the infant to sleep at an incline.

This illness happens often in infants. Please contact your physician if your infant is experiencing pain with reflux.
