Reflux in infants arise when food backs up from their stomach, resulting in them spitting up the food. It is a common occurrence in babies and isn’t unusual, hence it is not considered to be a serious condition as it rarely transpires after they are past the age of 18 months. Nevertheless as parents, seeing babies in a difficult or an uncomfortable situation can be heartbreaking. There are several types of reflux - here are some milk formulas that will help to ease these conditions.
