Acid reflux in infants usually results in regular vomitings and continuous crying, Sour breath, hiccups, and physical stiffness or discomfort are more typical symptoms. you can try body massage to your baby. Elevate your baby while sleeping and eating Hold baby upright for at least 30 minutes after feeding. while feeding aviod Dairy it can cause the problem because the proteins found in this food can irritate baby’s immature digestive tract.
