Baby with silent reflux finds relief with Bare Air-free baby bottles

Quest to find Bare® babies, reality show webisodes S1E3

Bare® Air-free baby bottles help Jace, a 5-week old, suffering with silent reflux. Jace’s mom describes his condition as one of the worst kinds of reflux because her baby doesn’t spit up the acid, he just keeps swallowing it down. Jace feels pain when the acids come back into his esophagus and again when he swallows it. Meal time for him means inconsolable crying, wrestling to get gas out and a lot of crying. Restless nights are routine and loud whining noises makes it hard to even sleep next to him.

 

The first step towards getting rid of this agony was to position Jace in upright position. Jace’s pediatricians suggested to keep him elevated at all times, 100% upright at least while feeding is key. At the same time as gravity is keeping the food down in the belly, Jace has the opportunity to control the flow and pace of which he drinks with suction strength, as Bare feeds only upon suction and in any position. If he stops sucking, no food is dispensed which helps preventing overfeeding. After feeding about 3oz of milk in a Bare Air-free baby bottle with Easy-latch nipple, Jace finally found relief after a meal. First thing he does is smiles at mommy, we think as gratitude, then he takes a long, quiet nap.
