Why infant reflux matters

by Carol Smyth | 25 March 2021
PAPERBACK
Many babies are fussy and spit up milk, and in recent years it has become common for them to be diagnosed with 'reflux' and medicated with antacids, thickeners and acid suppressants. However, research tells us that reflux is normal in young babies and that many of the symptoms associated with it may in fact be misunderstood baby behaviours rather than clinical symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). In Why Infant Reflux Matters Carol Smyth provides a simple and practical guide to understanding reflux that will help you avoid unnecessary medication if a simple change in feeding technique or care can help reduce your baby's symptoms. She explains what reflux is, why it happens, the difference between reflux and GORD, the role of stomach acid, and what research tells us about treatment. The book also explores the symptoms commonly attributed to reflux and looks at whether they might have other causes, and includes a plan you can work through for your individual baby to help you make informed decisions about their care.
