Managing babies with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease can be extremely challenging, not least because these babies want to be carried and comforted because they are in pain. Babywearing is just one tactic in helping to manage both the baby, your own household and any other kids you might have running around. And it provides another option to help you get out of the house.
Lifestyle changes can help reduce reflux, and an important strategy is that infants or children of any age completely avoid exposure to tobacco smoke. This includes addressing an older child’s exposure where possible.
