Acid reflux

The other day, after my son (13 months) drank. I picked him up off the bed, he vomited on my shoulder, it smelt acid. What is acid reflux, how do u know if this is what is it &  what can I do?

This appears to be a single one off vomiting episode. You did indeed smell acid becuase this was your baby's milk mixed with the normal stomach acid. With reflux babies regularly, usually after every feed, bring up small amounts of their feed.
