Doctors are being accused of over-prescribing reflux medication for babies.
New research shows that in many cases the treatment could be doing more harm than good.
It has been discovered that medications rarely help and have pretty harmful side affects like gastrointestinal infections and pneumonia.
More than 40% of babies suffering reflux are prescribed treatment.
If your baby is not thriving then it is recommended that you chat to your doctor about seeing a specialist who can help find any underlining causes.
