What is baby reflux?
Baby reflux is a regurgitation of food and stomach acids. It is due to:
- immature valve
- underlying fascial restrictions
- food intolerances
When does baby reflux begin?
Baby reflux usually begins shortly after birth. It usually diminishes by six months and disappears by 12 months.
Silent reflux occurs when the contents of the stomach come back up the oesophagus, but does not reach the mouth.Ttherefore, there is no apparent visual signs of reflux.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (G.E.R.D)
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is not baby reflux and is a serious medical condition and may require surgery to correct.

Cranial Therapy is a gentle and highly effective modality that actively helps the babys body release residual myo-fascial restrictions that can either be contributing to, or be the primary cause of reflux.
