Reflux - An Acid Problem? Finding Feeding Solutions

Reflux is a very common worry for parents, and is often misdiagnosed in babies due to a misunderstanding in the differences between normal reflux (GOR) and reflux disease (GORD).  Research suggests that only 0.9% of children have GORD (reflux disease), yet many babies with normal GOR are treated for GORD.  

Baby Sleep & You

How their baby sleeps is a concern for most parents.  Caught between the perceived society norm of a "good" baby who sleeps long stretches, and the reality of a young baby who wakes frequently and needs help getting back to sleep, we're often confused as to what is normal, or if our baby has a sleep problem.  

Breastfeeding & Food Hypersensitivity

Allergy rates are rising in babies, and many families find themselves querying whether their fussy baby could have a food allergy and is reacting through their breast milk.  Many breastfeeding mothers find themselves cutting foods out of their diet without any guidance, and unsure of how to help their baby.
