Trying to soothe my 5 wk baby who has refluxCan anyone point me in the right direction on what to use for my 5 wk baby girl who is miserable with reflux? For reasons out of my control we are not breast feeding anymore so please don't suggest that. We have her on goats milk, which has helped her but she is still suffering. The reflux occasionlly makes her vomit. She burps alot, usually with curddled milk and clear liquid or she simply just spits up. When she is trying to sleep you can her it come up but stops before it reaches her mouth. This will wake her up. She goes into crying fits after eating bringing her legs up to her belly and then violently flailing her arms and legs.Then she wants to drink again, and does so with vigor even if she has already drank many ounces. It is so disheartening to she her in such discomfort. Please help

Reva has advocated the use of Nat Phos 6x which I have been promoting for many years for both Babies and Adults and I shall copy his advice below
Re: Reflux in 2 months old baby
From Reva V on 2011-06-18
Natrum Phos 6x is safe to give for infants.
Patients with poor digestion of fat and hence increasing weight are helped by Natrum Phos 6x, since it improve digestion health (hence no more fat increase)
In summary, Natrum Phos 6x improves digestion, which is needed to your baby.
Joe pioneered this study and his protocol includes Arnica 30 in wet dose, along with Natrum Phos 6x. Both works together in synergy and is important to follow both.
I would recommend to start with Arnica 30 and Natrum Phos 6x. You can reduce the dosage by giving 1 tablet of Natrum Phos 6x and Arnica 30, given only once a day at bed time. If this does not help in a week, then give the following medicine, which is found to help with excellent success
Aethusa 200c, 1 pills, once in 4 days (not daily)
For inguinal hernia, we have a very dependable medicine in Homeopathy: Aesculus hip 6c. You can start this after the Reflux gets better.

Glad to note that your baby girl is OK and I presume that she was OK as predicted by me in under 24 hours. You may taper off her dosage of Nat Phos and Arnica as they are only needed to stabilize her gastric problems which as you noticed were fixed overnight.
Please ignore the advice that another member has given you to take Silicea 30 yourself before a feed as in any case you are not breast feeding her.
I note that you are feeding her on Goats milk but it may be better that you give her a Formula Feed as they are as near as is possible to human milk.
