What age do most babies stop spitting up?
My first baby really never did spit up, now my daughter has acid reflux and spits up alot.
I know it is common so I'm wondering evens average for them to stop?

Spitting does usually slow down by the time a baby is sitting, but they can still do it longer from time to time. You have to remember that babies don't have any muscle tone and the little valve between the esophagus and stomach, that allows the food to enter the stomach and is supposed to keep food in, is a muscle. When the tummy is full, and there is any pressure on the stomach the food will go the path of least resistence, which is up. There are very few babies that are walking that are still spitting up much, so it will get better.

my son stopped at about 9 months but he had reflux. my 2 month old spits up non stop it used to bother her but i think it's not hurting her anymore, she doesn't do pain face anymore.

My daughter had reflux too. She pretty much stopped spitting up around 6 months. They're stomach muscles are usually mature enough at that point to hold down their liquid diet.

Depends on the kid. My girls were 'happy spitters' and were mostly done by 9 months. My son had reflux, but always spit up less than his sisters. I think he was 'mostly' done by 6 months. The 10 month old that I watch doesn't spit up often, but it still happens.
