  • Yes, very bad. But it was due to prematurity. He almost had to have surgery it was so bad.

  • Yes, my son does. It made him very uncomfortable and irritable, but he still gained weight adequately, so I think it's a moderate case. Feeding smaller amounts more often throughout the day helped some, since he spit up more if he ate as much as most babies at one time. I usually tried to keep him upright (either holding him or in a bouncer/swing) for about 20 minutes after each feeding too. It seemed to improve as he started eating solid foods, but he still has problems occasionally.

  • My son was a 33 week preemie. He had reflex. It lead to him choking and he would stop breathing and then his heart would stop. He had to sleep upright in his car seat for almost a year before it got better.

  • My son spits up a lot, I think it is reflux. I put rice cereal in his bottles. He has had adequate weight gain even before that. But I was still concerned about him spitting up. He is nearly 6 months now and still does it.
