    James’ Story

    I watch James sleep snuggled up to me on the sofa, holding onto his cuddly ‘Tilly’ dog and study every inch of his face.

Frustrated, I asked the nurse for advice who force fed him and that soon ended up all over her. Nevertheless, they insisted it [...]

In our case, we were parents for the third time, but this time our 6 week old daughter Willow, was diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux/GOR for short, most [...]
