Possetting or Reflux
It does not seem right that anyone should be bringing back up what they have swallowed – except that babies are still developing, including their digestive system and that can take time. It is fairly common for babies to do that.
That can happen while breastfed or the bottle feed, so what can you do ?
Feed them in upright position if you can. Start with smaller and more frequent feeds and burp them regularly. Check the bottle teat size is right for them so milk should not be coming too fast.
There are products you can safely use for your baby to reduce or control Reflux – in our experience looking for complete control over reflux might not be possible. As babies do tend to grow out of it.
We look for how persistent reflux is and/or if there are other associated signs you might have noticed.
We can help you choose the first step, explain what you have to do and what could require further investigation or input from GP, with which we will help you.
Take a photo of your baby’s affected issue or we can do a direct video call to your baby, whichever is easier for the littlen.
We will give expert independent consultation, with diagnosis.
Our Pharmacists always asks the list of medicines/remedies you have in home so you do not spend money buying same/similar unknowingly which is of no help to you.
Where a referral is needed to GP or other services, we will provide a referral note so you will not have to repeat everything again.
