Reflux is a very common worry for parents, and is often misdiagnosed in babies due to a misunderstanding in the differences between normal reflux (GOR) and reflux disease (GORD). Research suggests that only 0.9% of children have GORD (reflux disease), yet many babies with normal GOR are treated for GORD.
