Spitting Up in Infants Treatment
If the child is otherwise well, no specific treatment may be needed other than the feeding techniques mentioned for home care.
Occasionally, the spitting up may be so frequent that the infant may not gain weight appropriately. This is much more concerning and may require specific tests and more aggressive treatment. If the testing confirms gastroesophageal reflux, the treatment may include careful feeding techniques and possibly medications.
