When will this messy phase end?
Don't worry, the day will come when you won't need to do laundry after every feeding. While it may seem like your baby is spitting up more as he gets older, that's only because he's eating more. GER symptoms tend to decrease around 6 months, once your baby's digestive system has matured and he starts sitting upright and eating solid foods. By the time your child is 12 months old the problem will probably have tapered off completely, although a few babies continue spitting up until 24 months. But don't be surprised if it gets worse before it gets better; some children's symptoms reappear when they learn to crawl and their stomach contents shift around.
