Unfortunately for both parents and babies, reflux can have a dramatic effect on a baby's ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to keep your baby safe and secure whilst improving their sleep habits. In this blog we will explore the main signs of reflux, how reflux correlates with your baby’s development and some safe and useful practices you can implement into your baby’s sleep routine.
Colic and silent reflux are two very difficult conditions to deal with in your baby’s early stages of development. Both of these conditions are extremely common in newborns and share some similar symptoms, hence why they are often confused with one another. In this blog we will help you to understand both conditions, how to spot the difference and what you can do to effectively soothe your baby.
Tummy time for a one-month-old looks considerably different from tummy time for a three-month-old. However, most parents are unaware of this when informed that their newborns should be having tummy time.
Reflux is a common problem in babies, and it usually starts in the first two months of life. More than half of babies spit up, and the majority of babies with reflux are considered ‘happy spitters’.Reflux, in more acute cases, can cause pain in babies. Reflux is easily recognised in babies who spit up and have irritability symptoms, however some babies may not spit up at all. This is referred to as silent reflux. Other signs of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in babies with silent reflux include fussiness and poor feeding habits. Parents of babies who do not spit up, on the other hand, may confuse their babies symptoms with colic.
All babies have wind, which is essentially air bubbles in their stomach. It's only when these air bubbles become caught in the stomach as a result of inhaling a lot of air at once that it becomes painful (usually through feeding or gulping).
