Infant Regurgitation

Regurgitation is when the stomach contents flow back up the esophagus and into the mouth. It is a type of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) – the other type being occult or silent reflux. Silent reflux is when the contents of the stomach only go part way up the esophagus. Infants tend to have more regurgitation episodes than silent episodes of GER as compared to adults.
