This book is simply awesome. Get it and read it. Its available from the RISA library but I thoroughly recommend buying it.
In fact, if you’re a reflux parent, I’d be keeping a copy of this, Reflux Reality and Colic Solved on the shelf. And use the regular baby books to prop up the cot!
Read on for information about alternative treatments to reflux medications, appetite stimulation and long term use of laxatives.
This book is written by Dr Joel Macht, an educational psychologist from the US, and documents what he has experienced over several years working with 200 children with eating problems. Dr Macht talks about creating an individual plan for each child, and acknowledges that what worked for one family may not work for another as each child is different and must be approached individually.
This book was published in 2004 and again in 2007. The 2007 version is vastly updated and I think much more useful. It contains some excellent chapters in Part 3 of the book called “Discussions from Experts in the Field”.
Thanks to those who’ve provided feedback on the book. Here’s some first hand parent testimonials about how its helped:
