Introduction

If you feel your baby may have Reflux, speak to your health visitor or Doctor straight away. Sadly many parents feel they aren't being listened to, here are a few tips.

Keep a Diary

Keep a diary for a few days, take videos of your baby's episodes… and present them as visual evidence. Make them listen!!

Ask a Friend

Ask a friend to come to the appointment with you, someone who is sleep deprived. You may be exhausted & emotionally charged, this won't help get your point across.

Don’t Feel Embarassed

Do not feel embarrassed, keep going back time after time. Don't be fobbed off! If you still have no joy, and finances will allow, go private to a specialist.

Support is essential, visit forums and chat to mums online. Have a look at Living With Reflux.

Trust Your Instincts

Finally trust your instincts.
