overweight baby?My sister in law has a 4month old baby boy.both parents are overweight significantly.currently the lil boy weighs 17.5 lbs and is 26in long.he was 3weeks early weighing in at 6lbs and 13oz,and 21in long.he eats often,like every 2-3 hours but he is a formula fed baby.is this weight unhealthy?I believe he suffers from reflux as he has many of the same symptoms as my 9week old daughter who has reflux.I've tried talking to them.does anyone have any suggestions on this or how homeopathy could help the baby?

Your niece's 4 month old seems set to outgrow his parents and it is essential that they take steps to not overfeed him. He can be given another brand of formula and can be checked how he responds. If he suffers from reflux he can be given 1/2 tablet of Nat Phos 6x in his feed and hopefully his reflux problem should improve. Nat Phos will also help to reduce his weight gain which it does by accelerating the passage of food down the gut thereby preventing it from being fully absorbed by the body.
In the case of a Baby however this may have to be taken with caution as it is possible that the essential elements a baby requires may be reduced.
Nat Phos 6x has helped many to reduce their weight and the parents can also take 2 tablets twice daily and they can expect a reduction of over 1kg per week. No coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon (Saltpeter) and no canned beverages. NP will not work to reduce weight in the presence of other drugs.
I remember prescribing Nat Phos to your baby a few days ago.
Did it work?
