Spitting up a lot, and I could hear milk in his throat all the time.  He would also have apnea from it but I only knew that from apnea monitors.  Try keeping him upright for at least 30min to an hour after feedings and try and keep his head elevated when he sleeps if possible.

They were spitting up a lot. So we went into the chiropractor and I told him about it. He said that they had reflux. We did an adjustment and that helped a lot of a while. We just did a few adjustments till they out grew it.

 That's exactly how my DD was. Every so often she'd actually projectile it straight out of her, but for the most part we'd hear it or see it depending on how we were burping her then we'd see it disappear again w/only a small drop coming out of her mouth. My DD is FF and is on Alimentum now which kept it at bay for a little bit but we ended up needing to get her pepcid...and now that she's eating more I think we have to increase her dose because she's starting to act the way she was before with a little spit up and getting really beastly and not wanting to sleep again.

how's his latch?  does  he ever choke or gag on the milk flow?  lastly, you can look at diet change... there are several things to explor before before jumping to reflux, reflux is way over diagnosed.
