and other passionate members in this revised pinned topic.
I have added a link to an online resource for Infant Reflux.Infant Reflux Support- RISA (Reflux Infant Support Association)http://www.reflux.org.au/
Below is the original introduction by teabags
Hi GirlsUnderstanding Infant Behaviourhttp://www.rch.org.au/kidsinfo/fact_sheets...settled_babies/"A new way to understand your baby's crying"http://www.purplecrying.info/Australian Association for Infant Mental Health Inc:
I'm posting this in a few different threads (Pregnancy, 12 months+ & behavioural problems) & the intention is purely to provide some information should anyone wish to look further.
From being around the boards for a while, it seems that many Mama's resort to or are advised to use CC. A friend of mine who wishes to provide information to help & support parents, has put together the following references for anyone wishing to look for gentle ways to soothe their babies.
Please feel free to circulate the following references. You may copy into your personal email, print and hand out to friends or local baby health centre/clinic nurse, etc.
