Does anyone know how to deal with infant reflux?

How intense is the reflux and how often? If it’s after every feed and sort of falls (vertically) out of your baby’s mouth onto his clothes, I’d recommend holding your baby upright for 20 minutes after eating so they have a chance to fully digest before being laid down to play, etc. You can also elevate the mattress slightly under their head (a slightly folded towel should do the trick). If it’s a more forceful reflux with projectile spit up, I’d consult with your pediatrician.

Either way, a baby’s digestive system takes about three months to develop and mature, so you should continue to see improvement as they get closer to 12 weeks old. Hope this helps!
