Infant Acid Reflux
Just as in adults, the esophageal sphincter valve relaxes and
allows the food and acid in the stomach to splash or be forced
up into the lower esophagus. This is called acid reflux. Many
refer this as burping or spitting up. Hence the spit up milk
The way you feed and burp your infant can make a difference in
the acid reflux of spitting up and regurgitation of its milk.
If you are nursing, what you eat is included in what your infant
gets in your milk. If you eat foods that will create gas in you,
then you can be sure that it will create gas in your infant.
Making sure that the infant gets a firm deep hold on the nipple
will assure that the infant will not be sucking in air at the
same time it is nursing.
Keep It On A Slant
It is always important to nurse the baby held on a slant, with
the upper body higher than its bottom. The esophageal sphincter
valve naturally will stay open to allow the milk to continue
to flow into the stomach.
It is also much easier to nurse, if you cradle the infant in
your arm then lean back or lie down. This will put the infant
where its stomach is lower than its head and in the right position
When bottle feeding the baby, it is easy for the infant to suck
air. There are special bottle nipples to eliminate sucking air.
Again the infant should be fed with the head and upper chest
higher than the stomach. Always hold the baby rather than lay
it down. The infant will be more comfortable and content if held
close to the body.
Stress in you or around you will also cause an upset stomach
for the infant, with possible acid reflux. Things need to be
kept quite and peacefull. If need be take a few real deep slow
breathes and smile. Speak or sing quietly or softly. This will
relax you and your baby. It will also decrease the infant acid
Crying And Colic With Infant Acid Reflux
Much of the infant crying or screaming with colic is from laying
the infant down with a bottle. Lying at the wrong angle, it is
easy for this acid reflux situation to start up. The air either
comes up or becomes large bubbles as the food is passed on down
into the intestines.
Just as a baby should be fed in an upright position, it should
also be propped up in an upright position for 15 to 20 minutes
after eating. Quite often the infant goes to sleep while you
hold it and will remain asleep after you lay it down in it crib.
Do not lay the infant on its stomach to sleep. Many people find that a infant acid reflux wedge will keep the baby at the proper angle when you put them down after feeding, so that acid reflux does not occur.
How you hold and feed your infant now can determine its health
later on. Infants and small children can and do get acid reflux . It is hard to know what to do with a crying baby in
pain. Hope this has helped you to see what steps you can take
to prevent the infant acid reflux.
