What are reflux and regurgitation?
Reflux occurs when the contents of the stomach move back into the oesophagus after feeding. Regurgitation (or posseting) means the stomach contents come up into your baby’s mouth.
If you think your baby has reflux, speak to your health visitor or pharmacist for advice.
