The Wedgehog - Positioning; Positioning; Positioning!

The worst positions for a baby with Reflux are lying flat on his back, upright and slumped, or with pressure round the tummy. This means during and after feeds and all times in between!

Sleeping Positions

Studies have shown the left and tummy positions to cause the least amount of reflux in babies. Talk to your doctor about swaddling and putting your baby on the left side. A baby sleeping positioner may be helpful in keeping your…

Infant Gaviscon Information

Some babies with reflux will respond well to thickening their feeds. The added weight of the thickener in the food helps to keep the food from splashing around in the baby’s tummy and can help keep it down. In the UK Infant Gaviscon is generally prescribed, but speak to your doctor before putting any thickeners into your babyfood.

Feeding: Solids and Reflux

Not much is written about how solid foods can react with some babies who have reflux. Most of the information on the internet is parents’ experience and what works and doesn’t work for some or others.

One of the key points to mention here is that the discussion over when to wean a baby 4 months or 6 months, whilst being relevant, shouldn't dictate your own circumstances. If you feel solids are going to help your baby keep their all important milk feed…

Feeding: hints & tips

Food Breastfeeding is better for a baby with reflux because breast milk is digested twice as fast as formula. Formula changes can help – if the baby has a milk or lactose allergy or intolerance; giving the baby formula that is milk based can make reflux worse. Discuss this possibility with your health visitor or doctor.

Thickening Some babies with reflux will respond well to thickening their feeds. The added weight of the thickener in the food helps…

hi, i've just found you on this website. I had my baby on the 13th October 2007. I am sure my baby is suffering from this condition and the health visitor and midwife want to wait to see what happens with the weight gain ? none as yet from the initial loss. My gp says i have a colicy baby. I cant stand the pain she is in. My gp wont refer me to a peadiatrician, any suggestions? how did you get diagnosed by a health professional?

Hi Fern :)

Sorry to hear about your baby's reflux - I would say get a second opinion as GP's are often wrong or slow in diagnosing reflux.

Contact Rachel at www.babyreflux.co.uk as she had some great advice for me.

Let me know how you get on!

Jessica.
