Friday Favorites: Treating Reflux in Babies with Diet

Treat the cause of infant reflux with maternal cow’s milk elimination.

Maternal diets can have a direct effect on breast-fed babies, as I previously covered in Treating Infant Colic by Changing Mom’s Diet ( ) and Infant Seizures Linked to Mother’s Spirulina Use ( ).

But for mothers who are able, breast is still always best. See The Best Baby Formula ( ) and Formula for Childhood Obesity ( ).

For even more on dairy and infant health, check out:

After this video was published, I released another one on reflux. See How to Treat Reflux in Children with Diet ( ).

Even after removing cows milk (mom fidnt breastfeed for long) and giving him the stinky non dairy formula (literally smells like a farm) he still throws up. Hes started soft solids several months ago and he still throws up. Mom is reintroducing fairy now that hes one month old

      1 month old baby should only be drinking mother’s milk. Until 6 months old their guts cannot digest anything else and in fact permanent damage can be done to their gut by feeding them anything else. From 6 months to 1yr old they should be mostly drinking mother’s milk and according to the WHO guidelines every baby should be breastfed at least until age 2. I was breastfed til age 5 and I thank my mom every day of my life for this. She did it for my health but she also felt a lot of spiritual bliss from breastfeeding. If the mom cannot breastfeed they must get to a lactation consultant ASAP and meanwhile try to find a wet nurse.
