When your baby struggles to sleep, it’s often reflux that lies at the root of the problem. Babies who find it hard to drift off and wake frequently during the night not only experience sleep disruptions but also bring discomfort to themselves and their entire family.
Recent research has shed light on a common underlying cause of this issue—a physical ailment, typically gastroesophageal reflux.
In some instances, a baby’s sleep challenges may result from inadequate conditioning or a lack of consistent routines. This might lead to the perception that they’ve been “spoiled” due to a lack of well-established rhythms.
In my perspective, resorting to sedative medications in such cases is counterproductive. Instead, the solution often lies in re-establishing appropriate routines and conditioning for the child.
