Acid reflux is not only common in adults. Children as well as babies experience acid reflux too. It can occur in various age groups among children. As we all know, acid reflux happens when stomach contents backflow into the esophagus. When this happens, acids in the stomach cause irritation and discomfort. In children, an immature digestive system is one the reasons why acid reflux occur. When acid reflux occurs, the stomach contents may come out of their mouth. This causes them to vomit forcefully.

Acid reflux has many symptoms. It can be a combination of all or just one. To know what the symptoms you need to watch out in your children, here are some of the common symptoms in children:
