As new parents we quickly learn that “poop” becomes part of one’s daily conversation. People are constantly asking how the “diaper changing is going?” and “how does Daddy do with diapers?"
You start to calculate how much and how often baby poops. The doctor will ask you what it looks like. Poop becomes a fact of life. When baby is suddenly not pooping, everyone gets concerned. Especially if your child is cranky or crying while pooping. This can be a sign of constipation.
Introducing solid foods to your baby can seem like a daunting challenge, but with some helpful guidance this task will be a lot easier—especially for those babies that struggle with infant reflux or Infant Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (Pediatric GERD).
Currently, medical research indicates that roughly fifty percent of babies are born with some degree of infant reflux. Sadly, in many cases infant reflux is misdiagnosed as colic and as a result many months may pass without the simple diet modifications that will make your baby healthier and more comfortable.
