    From what my Dr told me all newborns have a degree of reflux! Their muscles at the top of their stomach are not mature and strong yet! My son had a above average case of reflux and would vomit at least once a day! When he did, it would be almost like a projectile vomit! It was ridiculous! I had him assessed and he did have reflux! He was put on medication ( almost like an antacid) but by the time he was put on it he was almost 6 months and was beginning to turn a corner with it! He is now almost 10 months and still has issues with it! He still vomits, but not every day! If he coughs too hard or chokes it usually results in vomiting! From what my Dr told me as they grow older the grow out of it as the muscles strengthens! He would also arch his back, straighten out, scream in pain etc!!!!Hope this helps
