Silent Reflux

What is silent reflux?

Silent reflux is a condition where infants/children do not seem to have any outward symptom’s of reflux. In other words, they usually do not vomit, which can make a diagnosis difficult, as one of the main symptoms is not present. Some infants/children may (after refluxing) swallow the stomach contents (vomit) back down, or stomach contents may not come up high enough to reach the mouth or throat, which may cause aggravation in some children (commonly known as oesophagitus).

If you are at all concerned or suspect your infant/child is suffering with silent reflux we recommend you initially consult your medical professional. You can also take a look at our page: what should I look out for?
