I've written before about spit up in older babies, but I never would imagine that symptoms would linger far beyond the first birthday. At 18 months we still have some small episodes, albeit in frequent and typically brought about by huge fits of crying, or major belly laughs and hiccups! In any case, parents need to be prepared in the case that issues continue.
Oddly enough, once reflux started subsiding, so did the actual event of "sleeping through the night." I have this in quotes because we've never quite made it an entire night, but have gotten pretty darn close.
How long did your little one continue to show the signs of reflux and GERD, or did they even outgrow it at all? Your comments are welcome as always!

Yea, I went there. Nearly half of all babies spit up, regularly. Some more, some less, and for many it's just plain scary.
