Raising a baby is always tricky. Part of the difficulty is determining when the baby is sick or not. Somehow, as a mother, you can tell if something is wrong with the baby or not. But what if you are not entirely sure of what is wrong with him/her or you misdiagnose his illness for another?
Sometimes, your baby is finding it difficult to sleep, finding it difficult to breastfeed, and when he is overfed, he throws up. That’s reflux at work. In this article, we shall be discussing what reflux is and silent reflux baby natural remedies.
Silent reflux is a type of reflux where stomach contents flow backward into the nasal passages, voice box or throat. The stomach contents don’t get expelled from the mouth; it stays in the stomach and flows back to the back of the throat where it causes the baby distress. Hence, the reason why it is called silent.
Silent reflux creates a burning sensation around the throat area. Since food contents are in the stomach, the food mixes with the acid produced by the stomach and flows back to the throat. When this acid comes in contact with the throat, voice box, or nasal passages, it irritates them, and the baby will always feel like something is obstructing his throat. Hence, the frequent clearing.
