Aspiration

Silent Reflux can be worse than normal Reflux.

"Silent Reflux" is when the child "refluxes" but then swallows the acid/stomach contents back down. This can cause more damage because the acid has twice the opportunity to damage the esophagus and digestive tract.

Silent Reflux is much harder for parents to recognize. You may see that your child has a lot of the symptoms of reflux but there isn't much if any vomiting. Watch for 'gulping' sounds, choking episodes and bad or sour breath.

Silent reflux is scary because it will often go undiagnosed and untreated yet, because it poses a greater risk for damage it is even more important to treat. If you suspect this is happening to your child contact his/her pediatrician. They can run tests to determine if reflux is present.
