Bismillah, alhamdulillah:

Got asked this question today. I guessed 3 – 6 months based on my own clinical experience and then I had a quick look at UpToDate:

  • 50% at 0-3 months
    5% at 10-12 months
    Peak at 4 months (61%)

In one study of healthy infants younger than 13 months of age, regurgitation of at least one episode per day was reported in approximately one-half of 0- to 3-month-old infants, compared with only 5 percent of 10- to 12-month-old infants [5]. Regurgitation was most common around four months (61 percent), decreasing to 21 percent between six and seven months. The description of regurgitation as being a “problem” was given by 23 percent of parents of children aged six months, and decreased thereafter. A change in formula, thickening of feedings, termination of breast-feeding, and use of medication to treat regurgitation were reported by parents to be beneficial in some children. In most children with regurgitation that is considered to be a problem by their parents, the condition improves and usually resolves by the end of the first year of life [6] (UptoDate)
