My daughter had "milk reflux" really bad. I didn't cause her any discomfort or problems gaining weight. She was the happiest little thing...with milk running out of her mouth and a wet bib. I just changed her clothes and bibs a lot so she wouldn't get cold. And she was fine. She outgrew it at around 7 months. But prior to her outgrowing it, I did try putting cereal in her bottles (with EBM at first and then also with formula). That didn't work so I stopped. My pediatrician told me he'd write her a prescription for something but I declined...because it really wasn't a problem.

They say it comes from the top "valve" (or sphincter muscle) of the esophogus not being fully developed. It's different than acid reflux and vomitting, etc.
