How to Increase Baby's Appetite ??

Hi I'm new to homeopathy. But with my research on books and internet, I wonder if Lycopodium would really work for my 7 month old baby. She's been taking 7oz per feeding for no problem. She has acid reflux and is on Prevacid, that helps her alot with the vomitting. She started Prevacid more than a month. But since a week earlier we had a trip to Hong Kong and back here to Canada, she's completely lost her appetite. She'd stop in the middle of her feeding at 3 or 4 oz accurately. Doctor said she's nothing wrong physically, she just needs time to adjust back to here. But as a parent, it's SOOOOOO....frustrated and worrying, so I wonder if I order Lycopodium online, which format (pellets?) should I get and how to give the correct dosage. Any side effects? Please advise. Help! It's been going on for a week and she's not gaining weight at all, thanks alot!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
As I forgot to add, my daughter has always had almost no interest in eating. I've tried not feeding her for 5 to 6 hours and same thing happened, only 3oz, oh my god! She doesn't take any solid as well. She on 10th of her weight, she's usually a very happy baby, but since the trip back, she has lost her smile ever since, why?? Please help....I'd like to have my 7oz fed happy girl back !!!

On what symptoms did you chose Lycopodium?

There must be atleast three prominent symptoms that should match the remedy, before we consider trying it.

Hi Murphy,

Thanks for the response, as I'm totally new to homeopathy, I had no clue and was searching online. But then I realize she isn't eating little and often, she's just 'eating little'. She used to have a normal appetite, but after the flu, her appetite has completely reduced to half of it. Plus she's almost refusing anything near her mouth, oral aversion I believe. So, any hints? Thanks again !!

Why are using prevacid? What were the symptoms that led to its prescription?

What other medication you are currently giving?
