I want to let you know that I hear you, and yes, like you said, you know I too had a pretty shitty time and so I thank you for reaching out to me.
I will share a few things with you... firstly, it took me three years of denial, snappiness, grumpy "I'm-just-tired" remarks, and...
Reflux, ranging from no vomiting (silent reflux) to competition-winning projectile vomiting is distressing, for baby, mum and dad.
When we visit our doctors to ask for help, we are told that "reflux is normal", that "baby will grow out of it", and that we "don’t need to worry about it".
In every village, in every county and state babies are screaming.
They are screaming for help.
Screaming for someone to listen.
Their parents listen, they hear their pain. They can do nothing about it.
Or can they?
Our evidence-based medical world has decided in that a baby with colic or...
I'm afraid that this isn’t something that your doctor will ever tell you, yet there are many, many babies out there who’s parents will tell you that either they didn’t have reflux until their jabs or that their baby’s reflux got markedly worse after jabs.

“You’re going to have a baby, hate being mum, feel a complete failure at it, develop postnatal depression that...
It really is time to call time on so many myths about reflux, colic and food allergies in babies.
I believe that these myths are more doing far more harm than good. They let the medics off the hook for treating babies properly, they allow longer term suffering to continue and they completely...
Histamines. Something we are starting to hear more and more about in relation to reflux.
