2 out of 3 babies suffer GERD symptoms in the US.
What is Acid Reflux?
Acid reflux is another name for GER (Gastroesophageal reflux). GER happens when the stomach contents come back up into the esophagus. Infants—babies younger than 2 years—with GER spit up liquid mostly made of saliva and stomach acid. Stomach acid that touches the lining of the infant’s esophagus can cause heartburn, also called acid indigestion, acid reflux, acid regurgitation or reflux.*
What can you do to reduce acid reflux symptoms?
Reflux, GER and gas issues are extraordinarily painful for most babies which translates into inconsolable crying for hours. We urge you to do anything possible to help ease your baby’s pain. Bare® is the only bottle that feeds in upright position + air-free milk + let the baby create suction to control the flow and pace of which he feeds. The combination of these 3 benefits exponentially reduces gas and reflux symptoms in babies.
The fact that other bottles have to feed the baby in “laying down” position encourage the regurgitation of acids in the stomach. The fact that other bottles allow air to mix with the milk causing gas on top of GER/GERD, and easy feeding leading to over feeding, results in disadvantages that vastly worsen GER/Reflux symptoms.
What is GERD?
GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux decease) is a more serious and long-lasting form of GER in which acid reflux irritates the esophagus. Infants with symptoms that prevent them from feeding or those with GER that lasts more than 12 to 14 months may actually have GERD. If you think your infant has GERD, you should take him or her to see a doctor or a pediatrician. Two out of three of 4-month-olds have symptoms of GERD. By 1 year old, up to 10 percent of infants have symptoms of GERD.*
