Is my baby suffering from acid reflux.

How do I know if my baby has acid reflux? And if he/she does, what do I do about it? Take this quiz to help you answer those questions and figure out if your baby's spit-up and fussiness are signs of acid reflux and are more than just a laundry issue.

Please note that this quiz is only designed to help you recognize whether your baby MAY be suffering from acid reflux and would benefit from treatment. It is not intended as medical advice and should be followed up with your baby's pediatrician if you believe the results are accurate.
