Regurgitación en los bebés

Los bebés comúnmente regurgitan debido a que el esfínter que se encuentra en la parte superior del estómago está casi siempre suelto. En los bebés sanos que están presentando un buen desarrollo, la regurgitación es generalmente de leche en lugar de ácido estomacal. En términos generales, la regurgitación alcanza su pico máximo a los 4 meses y desaparece a los 7 meses de vida, aunque puede tomar más tiempo. Para ayudar a disminuir la regurgitación es necesario hacer eructar al bebé mientras y después de que se lo alimenta.
