infant reflux 3mo oldMy son is 3 mo old (12/12/06) & has reflux. He is 14 1/2 lbs, 26'. Normal birth, 3days early. High bilirubin 1st 3 days. No projectile vomiting. Takes Alimentum formula w/ 1-2 tsp rice cereal in bottle, 7-8oz every 3 hrs. He sleeps 6-7 hrs at night, short naps throughout day. His is happy, smiling, not a big cryer, alert. Likes to be held, sleeps on his belly. Very smelly poops (loose but not diarrhea), maybe its the formula?. Acidy breath. Spits up to 2 hrs after feedings. Most of the boys in my husbands family have reflux. Dr. prescribed zantac which i refuse to give him. Ive read about chamomilla & silica. Which is better? Whats the dose?
Any help appreciated before his christening this Sunday!!
