Reflux

You can find all posts written specifically about Dotty’s Reflux below.

Each post is a bit like a retrospective diary entry that I’ve tried to write as honestly as possible. I’ve learnt that Reflux can affect babies (and adults) in lots of different ways and I’m by no means a specialist. This is only a personal account of my little girl’s experiences as I remember them happening.

Some posts will contain references to recordings taken of Dotty having her “turns”. You can find these in the drop down tab labelled “Videos” under the “Reflux Diary” tab at the top of this page.
