Baby Digestion and Reflux Directory

It's common for new babies to have tummy troubles. Babies with digestion problems may have gas, constipation, diarrhea, or they may spit up a lot. In fact, more than half of all infants under 3 months old have a digestive disorder called gastroesophageal reflux, or GERD. Reflux occurs when the contents in the baby's belly move backwards up through the esophagus during or after a meal. Changes in your baby's diet or formula may help ease digestive woes, but sometimes medication is needed.
