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. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about baby digestion and reflux, what the symptoms are, how to treat it, and much more.
