Infant Reflux - Please Help

Hi! I have a baby who just turned 4 months old yesterday. Since about 12 hrs old he has had projectile spitting with choking. He arches his back & screams after spitting up, burping or having hiccups. Sometimes he just starts screaming from lying down or even being in his bouncy & he will arch, twist & turn as if trying to get away from the burning. He was born at 37 weeks, no drugs for labor/delivery, he did have slight meconium in his water. He was 8 lbs, 10 oz at birth & as of yesterday weighs 15 lbs, 8 oz. He tries to be happy but he is just not a happy baby. Some days are better than others. He is exclusively breast fed & I've done elimination diets with no improvement. We did battle 'overactive letdown' & 'foremilk/hindmilk imbalance' but those seem to be under control now. During that time he would have frequent explosive poops that were slimy, mucousy, & green. His poops have now gone back to the typical yellow color of a bf baby but they are still mucousy, stringy. His ped wants him on Axid. I've read Chamomilla can help reflux. I have some here - 1 is 30x & 1 is 200c. Which should I give him & how often? Is the 200c for a once only dose? Or is there another remedy that would work better? I appreciate any input & will be glad to answer more questions on his history.
Thanks in advance,
Paula

Sex: M
Age: 4 months
Nature of work: Habits:
Batting at objects, rolling, etc. ha,ha


1. Describe your main suffering?
Pain from spitting up, burping, lying prone, hiccups, etc. Projectile spitting up, slimy, mucousy poops.



2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
none other than stated above



3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
none


4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
I'm guessing burning as his will arch his back & twist & turn as if trying to get away from the sensation. Not to mention screaming.


5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
Started about 12 hrs (give or take) after birth. Labor was long (31 hrs) but no interventions, no drugs. Mom caught baby so no head pulling. Did have slight meconium in water when it broke. No breathing problems upon delivery.



6. Which time of the day you are worst?
This varies day to day. Overall I'd say early evening is worst. 2nd would be night.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.
Patting back sometimes help.



8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
Don't think so. I've paid attention to enviromental factors & have propped at 30 deg angle, toned down visual stimulation, etc.

Dear Paula:
Sorry me but I haven't enough symptoms to prescribe. It would be better you consult an homeopath near you. He can advice the best treatment for your baby.
Best regards
