Homeopathy and Health Forum
Silent reflux in 5month old causing chronic congestionMy baby is 5 months old and has silent reflux which is causing chronic congestion. she was on Zantac but I decided not to continue giving her these meds and want to use homeopathy instead. The last couple of nights have been rough with her waking every hour bc of trouble breathing. During the day I can hear noise while breathing bc of the congestion.
I read about your treatment with nat phos 6x after each meal for baby, but bc of her reflux my baby doesn’t really drink her milk until she’s very drowsy right before going to bed. She does a lot of dream feeding too. Would it be possible to give her the nat phos 6x 30 mins after she eats or it doesn’t work If not given immediately after eating?
I am expressing my milk and giving it to her in a bottle. I also read you recommend nat phos 6x for the nursing mother and liquid Arnica? I couldn’t find liquid Arnica, just the tablets. Would this work?
I also wanted to write you directly to get the specific dosage recommendations and instructions from you.
I’m hopeful this will make a difference for my baby.

I would like to clarify that she usually eats very little at a time, with most of her feedings done as she’s falling asleep. In a couple of hours she drinks 3 ounces of milk and then takes a nap. Very rarely she drinks it all at once. I learned that babies do this because of reflux too. So giving her feeding pattern, is there a time limit at which I can give her the nat phos 6x? Do I have to wait certain amount of time after giving nat phos 6x to her for her to have more milk?
Thank you so much in advance for your help.

jawahar 3 months agoMy 5 month old baby has silent reflux which is causing her chronic nasal congestion. The last 3 nights has been hard where she wakes up crying bc of problems breathing. She was on Zantac but discontinued it since I want to go the homeopathic route.
