Acid Reflux in Children Duration: 42 seconds

Frequency of reflux can be several times a day to once every few days.

We of course would be more concerned as parents with a child that has frequent spitting up or vomiting. But it’s more the consequences of the growth of the child that really matters, not the frequency itself.

We would like to see whether the child is growing and vomiting or not growing and vomiting. Your family physician can help you decide whether this child requires more evaluation or not.
