Description

Known as the Magic Sleep Fairy, I am a published author, Specialist Baby Consultant and expert in Infant Reflux. Through working in nursing and as a maternity nurse I have become one of the top UK baby consultants specialising in Reflux and related issues. I have helped literally 1000s of parents get their baby sleeping through but also helped them get the help they need when the medical profession isn't listening.

Look at this little cutie who has come to visit The Magic Sleep Fairy at home in Swanage! She's only 3 weeks old and was born with such awful reflux and intolerances which made her scream & cry inconsolably 😔 for hours and hours. Her parents reached out to me for help but having just had surgery on my foot I was unable to go and visit them, so......I invited them to come to my home instead! So here we are 24 hours in and this little beauty is now settling, sleeping and feeds are getting easier through an intense management plan of her reflux which is of course over-seen by my great colleague Dr Muftah Eltumi. Happy days and by the seaside too!

CLARIFICATION ON PRESCRIPTION FORMULAS: There is currently some confusion and panic that the NHS are changing their policy on prescribing infant formulas for those babies that have Acid Reflux, GORD or Dairy & Lactose allergies/intolerances. My understanding is that they are no longer going to prescribe, soya based formulas, pre thickened formulas or lactose free formulas as these are all now widely available and the price is roughly equivalent to that of ordinary formulas. However, THIS DOES NOT AFFECT EXTENSIVELY OR FULLY HYDROLYSED FORMULAS SUCH AS NUTRAMIGEN OR NEOCATE.......so don't panic!

A wonderful email I just received from more happy parents.......and a VERY happy baby 😍 Hi Alison I've been meaning to write before Christmas but time got away with me. My husband and I just want to say a huge thank you for your help with James and making our lives happy ones again! You were the only one prepared to come and help us with James and since you've been James has really flourished. He's now taking to some solids which is great and he's full of joy and laughter! It's amazing really how he's changed. He's almost crawling too and loves trying to grab Thomas's toys from him. Anyway here are a few photos of James and again a huge thank you. Hope you and your family have had a wonderful Christmas.

This little beauty, at 5 months had really struggled with undiagnosed CMPA and associated acid reflux. In her parents words "they were so worried about her screaming and wired behaviour that they were thinking that she was born with ADHD!" Three days in from when Dr Eltumi switched her to Neocate, prescribed losec mups and I've worked my Magic teaching her to drink and sleep- they now know that it was a medical condition causing much pain & discomfort that drove her previous 'hyper' behaviour 😐 She was literally calmness, personified this morning after the best nights sleep she's ever had and took 200 mls of thickened Neocate, from her mummy, in 15 minutes flat. HAPPY CHRISTMAS - and 'CHEERS' to Neocate once again. (And me, and Dr E, and Carobel, and Losec, and Mam bottles, and to her parents for not giving up when they knew something was wrong and to little baby R for coping & being such a smart cookie and quick learner😍)!

Another 13 week old refluxer, who is now sleeping 12 hours at night and happily taking four, 7oz feeds each day 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 This little one had previously been diagnosed with acid reflux and CMPI by a top paediatrician at GOSH. He had been prescribed Lansoprazole and had also recently had his formula changed from Aptamil pepti to Neocate. However he was feed refusing and taking over an hour to drink 3 to 4 ozs, was dummy reliant and waking loads in the night. What did I change then? You may ask........ 1. Changed to Mam bottles and moved up from size two to size three teat. 2. Added correct amount of Instant Carobel to each feed. 3. Fed him lying back on a cushion instead of holding him in arms. 4. Taught baby - and the parents - how to feed more efficiently and feeds now take 20mins max! 5. Administered the lansoprazole in a more effective way - 30 mins before feed one, so it was on an empty stomach instead of after a feed as was previously being given. 6. Removed the dummy and nighttime feed, as this was actually making his reflux worse. 7. Tweaked daytime nap schedule and allowed him to self-soothe and then wake naturally..... So to achieve all of the above over three days we've been through - a couple of unsettled nights (they were previously horrendous with wakings every hour) - A few projectile vomits - A couple of days where timings and routine went haywire - An amount of parental uncertainty that it would ever 'work'... But all has culminated in another very happy, smiley baby with parents who are simply astounded at the positive change in their beautiful baby. An early Christmas pressie for this London family. 💗🎄💗
