    You would definitely know, there was no questioning if something was wrong with my son he screamed and did so constantly, for at least 3 hours after eating and was just miserable, much better now he's medicated.

    My daughter was a happy chucker, she threw up all the time but was never on pain. Just keep an eye on things and of they worsen go to a dr but they are often hard to convince about reflux anyway. I'd say the bad feed was a one off from fast flow, try not to worry

    DS had silent reflux and was a miserable baby who would not sleep lying down at all during the day for 5 months He did sleep ok at night once we finally got him to sleep but the pead said that was because he was exhausted. You would know if your baby had a problem with reflux. Might just be a happy chucker

    My 2nd and 3rd had terrible silent reflux. Looking back, I guess DD1 had reflux too- she did huge vomits after every feed, but was generally a happy, settled baby. So, I think she had reflux, but it didn't seem to bother her and even in hindsight I wouldn't have medicated her for it.

    It does sound like reflux, but moderate. Any form of continual spewing is reflux to my knowledge.
    I've had two with reflux. Both I considered moderate. My sons was enough to concern me that I did consider medicating at one point but he was gaining tons of weight.
    Both grew out of it at around 7/9 months.
    If he's generally ok there's not much to do but try to prop him for sleeping, I had a foam wedge cut for my boys bed or people elevate the cot on bricks. And try to keep him upright after feeds and no tight clothes, all that stuff you can google.
    To say it's not reflux I do find a bit strange as it isn't 'normal' for babies to spew at all really, especially not everyday. Just sometimes it's only mild, but still reflux.

    I agree with this also. I had a SIL do the same. She had a reflux bub and felt my dd was reflux, but I don't think she was. Maybe moderately, but she outgrew the chucking :-)

    I was going to say this. Reflux babies scream, and it's a painful scream, they arch their back. DS had really acidic breath. If your baby isn't upset by it, then as others have said, you just have a happy chucker.

    You will know if your child has reflux bc every single feed and the HOURS after is hell. It isn't just one feed of crying and discomfort, it's a constant problem.

    I've read it's only reflux if they're distressed by it (ie it burns). If they're just spewing and still happy then it's not reflux. DS spews constantly but never upset by it. Their digestive tracts are immature so stuff comes back up easily. Also think he's a greedy water and fills himself to the brim!
