Something Special from Kittys Mum
We hope you enjoyed reading Kitty's story, it truly reflects how experiences of parenthood can be so different from our original expectations.

KITTYS LIFE SAVER

KITTYS LIFE SAVER
I was bought a book by my oldest friend.....a book on how to look after your baby......my friend had used the book and swore by it.......

There are a range of medical antacid treatments including infant Gaviscon, Ranitidine and Losec Mups which by reducing stomach acidity will lessen the burning pain experienced through a reflux attack. Reducing CMP and lactose in milk either by changing the diet of a breast-feeding mum or using a hydrolysed formula which has had ...
