My baby had acid reflux and later on developed with colic and the only thing which helped with both issues was Babies magic tea!

Hi,

I know it's a terrible feeling that you get very desperate.

My baby's reflux was so bad that the doctor did a Nissen Fundoplication (commonly known as the Reflux Op) at 5 and a half months. I honestly don't know of any babies who totally outgrow reflux. There will always be a permanent remainder of it right through adulthood. My husband and I were both Reflux babies and still both battle with heartburn and the GERD.

But all you can do is stay positive that she will improve with time, and bide your time before having her operated on should it become necessary. ( The best thing I could've done was to send Ethan-Mikyle for his operation!)



Good luck!!!
