Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease affects up to half of all babies under the age of three months. It can happen several times throughout the day, especially after meals. When food is swallowed into the stomach, but subsequently regurgitates back into the oesophagus, this is known as regurgitation (food pipe). It may then return to the stomach (and down the gastrointestinal tract), or it may wash up to the mouth or beyond, resulting in a vomit or feed spill.
