Is your baby unsettled at night?  Does she cry as if uncomfortable and remain fretful?  This could be due to reflux.  Ann Richardson helps us to understand what reflux is and how it can affect your baby’s sleep. If your baby has gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR), it may be a contributing factor to her lack of sleep. GOR is usually caused by an underdeveloped valve between your baby’s stomach and her oesophagus (the food pipe to her stomach). This valve will strengthen with age, but meanwhile the acidic content of her stomach (milk) is constantly being regurgitated into the...

Q: Hi there, Please help me.  My baby is 5 months old and battles with Acid reflux.  Each day is a complete nightmare.  We have started him on solids in the hope that it helps the reflux but he simply just refuses to eat most of the time.

Q: Hi Please can you help with our 5 month old baby. She has suffered from both colic and reflux since approximately 6 weeks. The colic did not last very long (a couple nights worth of crying) and we have put her on Zantac to help ease the reflux.

She is currently waking at least 3-4 times per night, which is a substantial improvement from...

I think she just wants to be held by me and not be separated  Am I creating...

Q: Hi, I have 2 questions: I follow the Baby Sense principles and also play the Wound to World CD for my baby daughter when she goes to sleep and while she’s sleeping. She is 4 weeks old and generally a ‘goodish’ sleeper. She has however developed problems with winds and we are constantly struggling to get these ‘loose’ so that she can fall asleep. We would ‘burp’ her for a few minutes – aware that this should not take too long as this could over-stimulate her, and then 1 of 2 things would generally happen. She would be drowsy and we would then lay her in her cot.  As soon as we lay...
