6 week old with acid reflux and colic

My daughter who is six weeks old has developed acid reflux. She also has very bad gas pains and the gas makes her belly very distented and bloated! My pediatrition want to put her on Prevacid, but I refuse. I found some posts on here about nat phos 6x and tried it last night. It was the first time in 5 weeks she slept seven hour straight. She usually sleeps maybe 2 hours in the night and in the day she takes maybe 2 30min naps ALL day! I am wondering how long to continue the one tablet 3 times a day or do I need to give her other stuff with it? This is safe for a six week old who is 9 pounds right? I feel like this is a miracle drug :-) I hope it keeps on working...though I have only given it to her once...last night before bed! Any help would be great!

Dear kinnykay,NAT PHOS 6X is a sure cure for GERD,pl continue nat phos 6x 1 tab 3 times a day for long time,& also give calc carb 30 c 2 pills once only.

revert back after 15 days.

May I please put the record straight ?

As one who has pioneered in recommending Nat Phos 6x for gastric problems for adults, I would hesitate to prescribe 1 tablet taken 3 time daily for an infant only 6 weeks old. I am glad that the mother Kinnykay refused to use the Prevacid prescribed and I must state here that I am truly shocked that her pediatrician prescribed it for this baby. This PPI drug should be banned and should never be given to infants.

Anyone interested can type 'PPI Drugs' into Google and read the many cases which warn against their use on a regular basis. PPI's have proved to be a money spinner for Big Pharma and they just cannot afford to stop their production even though they are fully aware of the damage they are doing to patients lives.

Nat Phos 6x is very safe to be used for adults but not for an infant on a long term basis at 1 tablet 3 times daily. If she must use Nat Phos 6x it is best given dissolved in a teaspoon of water. Only half a tablet may be given after a feed not over twice daily and she should report the baby's response in 24 hours.

The mother should investigate the reason for her baby's gastric problem which can be due to the formula that she may be using. I do not think that breast milk can upset a baby and if she is using formula feed she can change the brand.

Thank you for the response. Did you mean to give the calc carb 30c once a day or once only ever. How long can I can continue with that too? What excatly does the calc carb help with both reflux and gas? Headed to the market to get the calc carb!

Thanks again
