Hi Simone

Thanks for your reply.

Can I ask, what foods you had trouble with? At the moment it seems like I can't eat anything...

Thanks again,

Hi Sara,

I don't understand- what do you mean you cannot eat
anything? Are you having reflux yourself?

If breast feeding, they say avoid acidic type foods, like
coffee, vinegar, chocolate, tomatoes and gassy foods like onions
cabbage, beans etc

thanks Simone, I meant for foods that pass through the breastmilk

I know what you mean Sara-I am sure you can
google around and find good diets for nursing Mothers-
But it can be difficult if you want to BF and then
have to navigate an entire new menu of food for yourself
that is not what you normally would want.

Hi Joe, my daughter responded to NP the first day, when I started her on half pill she started to throw up again, should I keep her on one pill on the second day also? And if she doesn't respond to NP what should I use nox vomic or arnica 30 c? Does arnica liquid extract works the same as arnica 30 c?

How do I use nux vomica?

Hello, nat phos worked a lil on my daughters acid reflux can I use nux vomica to reinforce it, as I still haven't gotten the arnica liquid solution, ty

You have not indicated how old your Baby is and for how long she has suffered from Reflux and for how long you have given her Nat Phos 6x which is my default remedy for Baby GERD, and if you have given her a tablet after every feed.

You have asked for instructions to use Nux Vomica but this is a remedy that may only be used under supervision and at this stage it is best not to use it till you give the details requested above.

You will NOT give baby Arnica as this is a remedy I prescribe for the mother. Do not experiment with the various remedies I have prescribed to hundreds of mothers as they may cause more harm than good.

I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.
You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby's digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.

You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

Report progress in 24 hours or as often as you wish on this thread.

My daughter is 55 days old, I started NP on her 3 days ago, I stopped the third day and she started to throw up again and I'm giving her half NP, today which is the third day she threw up once an hour after her bottle it was a lot of vomit first was all the milk and right after a lot of clear liquid. What's my next step.
fafagriswold 7 years ago
I noticed that she started to have acid reflux about 30 days ago it was mild I toke her to the doctor and he confirmed and it started to get worse until I gave her NP she it's not throwing up every bottle but still throwing up once or twice a day every day.

Hi Joe, my two previous post above say a lil about my daughter improvement, thank God and thank for your help my daughter is almost 100% acid reflux free, I stopped giving her NP on the third day and she started to throw up once a day on day 3 and 4.... I stopped again on day 5 and she didn't threw up for 24 hrs, but day 6 she threw up again so she is back on half NP after every bottle, I also noticed that the day she didn't throw up her burps still have the smell of acid reflux on it or sulfur smell, you asked me to let you know if NP alone wouldn't help so you could prescribe her something to go along with NP. I'm so happy to see her improvement and that we are almost there. Ty in advance.
fafagriswold 7 years ago
Glad to note that she has responded well and is almost well.

I note that you have stopped the NP for a few days till she throws up again.
You can avoid this status by giving her half tablet after every feed and you must know that Nat Phos 6x is NOT to be considered as a DRUG. It is a Cell Salt which works in a different manner to heal. Do some reading on Cell Salts on the web.

You do NOT need the other remedy as she has responded to the NP alone and you must follow my instructions above.
Joe De Livera 7 years ago
I believe that NP it's safe just was wondering if she would need something else to reinforce NP as she is on day 6 taking it or if I just keep giving her half NP for a lil longer and for how long would be ok to keep giving her NP in case she still need it? She will have her two months Doctor app. On the 6th should I advise the pediatrician that she is on NP? She will have her two months shot I read your post about wait with the shots but I have two more kids and I feel safe having her vaccinated.
fafagriswold 7 years ago
As long as Nat Phos 6x is helping her at half tablet after a feed you can consider that you are fortunate as the majority of mothers have to resort to a full tablet after every feed.

You can safely give it to her for many more months in the future till she shows that her digestive system, which in the majority of babies is not fully developed, is able to cope with your breast milk without reflux.

You will be doing babies and their mothers a big favour if you spread the news to them and your pediatrician that Nat Phos 6x used as prescribed by me, helped your baby in a manner that the dangerous PPI drugs they usually prescribe, like Zantac Prevacid Nexium, cannot equal.

Hello Joe, my last report was that my daughter was on half NP after every bottle I had to put her back on one full NP because she is not responding to half NP anymore...today she threw up 3times which she was spitting up once a day before, at nap or sleeping time she is always swallowing and gagging more often cuz of the reflux comes up and down to her throat guess she has silent reflux also, she can only have one ounce of milk every two hrs but she still crying for more if I do give her 2 ounces every two or three hrs she will eventually throw up, she is so skinny right now even knowing she is doing a lot better spitting up much less but still don't seem gained any weight since her last visit to the doctor...will report her weight on Monday as she is going for her 2 months doctor visit.
fafagriswold 7 years ago
On the basis of your latest report, I believe that it is time to give her Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose which I presume that you have read on this thread how to make. (3 drops in a 500ml bottle of spring water).

You will give her just 1 teaspoonful twice daily and report progress in 24 hours.

I note that you will visit your doctor in a few days and you must know that vaccinating her when she is still suffering from GERD will only make her condition much worse.

My advice is to vaccinate her after she is a year old.

fafagriswold 7 years ago
Sorry joe I'm very confused over here the Nux Vomica I have it's pallets little pills just like NP, can I use it till I get the liquid version? Ty
fafagriswold 7 years ago
Yes you may use the Nux Vomica 30c in the pellets.

You will insert 6 pellets into the bottle of spring water and give baby a teaspoonful twice daily.
