Then reflux happened.
The upset baby, the vomiting, the constant night-wakings, the helplessness of holding your screaming baby, unable to take away or explain their pain, and it's easy to lose sight of our dreams.
In this step-by-step guide, Aine shares her simple process to answer the only question that matters: "What Is Causing Your Baby's Discomfort?"
You can have a happy baby. You can be free from reflux. You can get a relatively decent night's sleep. You can have the answers you've been searching for.
Within hours of opening this book, you will have a much deeper understanding of what is going on for your baby and the tools to define a clear path of action you can take to help them.
We know there is something going on and if we could just find that one thing to help our baby we would do it.
It seems like the days passing by, the nights get eternally longer and perhaps the doctor was right, perhaps we just have to wait it out. For how long? And how much pain does your little one really have to endure?
Aine Homer, The Baby Reflux Lady lived this story and after months of being pushed away, took control of her baby's story and rewrote the ending. In The Baby Reflux Lady's Survival Guide, she shows you how to do the same thing.
You can have the family life you once dreamt of.

"Written with compassion this book is a comprehensive guide on the causes of reflux and colic in a manner not presented before. Áine connects with the reader through her own story. She addresses everything parents need to know about reflux, food allergies and intolerances in babies.
The second half of the book presents a logical and new way introducing food: recognising that baby’s have a naturally immature digestive system and by working with it rather than against it that reflux can be managed effectively in the early years. The last section of the book dives into the emotional and relationship aspects, because reflux affects more than just baby.
Full of practical tips, information to inform parents understanding of reflux, and true stories to which parents can relate to know they are not alone, this book should be on the shelf of every parent of a baby with reflux."
is a comprehensive guide about reflux, silent reflux, colic, CMPA and other food intolerances and allergies.

"I only just received my book yesterday and already can see this is going to be my Reflux Bible! After 16 months of trying medications, milks, diets and frantically googling with very little support (no support before the age of 1) from medical professionals all I can say is THANK YOU! Xx"
"Aine ‘s book is incredible! So comprehensive, so helpful. We've been having a bit of a nightmare since introducing food but her section on this has now shed some much needed light on a very complicated issue. I've done a lot of reading on this subject and this is by far the best and most complete book on reflux that I have come across. Highly recommend this to all parents of reflux babies!"
"I just want to say a big thank you to Aine as her book changed out lives. I read the book and it was my baby to a T - finally someone who understood. Thank you so much!"
"It is so far the best Reflux book I have ever seen! It has charts and diagrams. ANY question you could possibly have, this book seems to cover it. I even has a chart of all the different milk and what they do and contain. EVERYONE who has a baby with reflux, tongue tie, colic, allergies , intolerances etc NEEDS THIS BOOK. Bloody well done Aine Homer."
"I'm finally enjoying parenting...I would recommend every pregnant lady and new mother read Aine's book."
"I now truly believe about treating the cause, not the symptoms, it's working for us. And to my friend handed me the book and Aine Homer for writing it, I can't thank you enough."
"Your book absolutely saved us. At the time, my son and I were in a desperate situation. Every time I fed him we were both in tears. He was screaming and kept pulling off, and I was so upset that something was causing him so much pain. It was your book that gave me hope and resulted in a very happy mother and baby team."
Aine Homer, AKA The Baby Reflux Lady
"Feeling like a failure, questioning if I should even be mum, and being let down by every GP, midwife, health visitor and allergist we asked for help, I had no choice but to figure it out on my own."
Aine Homer is a mum and wife first. With a background in Mechanical Engineering, Maths, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Nutrition for Food Allergies and Intolerances, she brings a truly unique perspective to baby reflux.
Her professional background has always been focussed on finding the root cause to every problem, and her children's reflux was no different.
What she discovered was eye-opening, yet beautifully simple:
Reflux is a symptom, not a disease, and when we read each baby’s symptoms and behaviours we can decipher the underlying cause.
This gives us a Baby Centred Approach to Reflux, CMPA and Colic.
This allows us to take specific action for every baby rather than a “try this, try that” approach.
This book is designed to be dipped in and out of, there are reference sections for most of the things you need to know about reflux, how to help your baby and then how to start improving your own life too. When you read this book, you are going to:
This book will help babies everywhere because reflux doesn't discriminate. It does not matter if baby is formula or breast fed, via breast or bottle. If doesn't matter if your baby uses a dummy or nor sleeps in your bed, your room or downstairs. These characteristics do not determine your baby's reflux.
There is an entire section devoted to explaining formula milks, how they differ from each other and how they can affect a baby with reflux.
Another section is devoted to the diet of a breastfeeding mother. The rest of the book is equally applicable to all feeding methods.
If your baby has already started solids, that is also dealt with in this book
