The best bet for this is low Silica say 6x potency --- which YOU take about an hour before breast feeding , twice a day for about a week/10 days --- but stop when the problems go, and do not take any more until the problem comes back.
As a matter of curiosity , are you afraid of dogs and is there any TB in the family history.
walkin last decadethis is a common habit of infants.no need to worry however use aethusa cynapium 200.if you breast feed you can take this remedy thrice daily or pour just a drop of medicine in a little water and rub this water inside of your child lips or you can give him orally in feeder.it will give relief.
sajjadakram635 last decadethanks walkin
yes i am kind of afraid of dogs and no there is no TB in the family..
another thing-- i hv already met a homeopath here who had given me 200c of silica marina one shot. she gave it to me on 30th of june. according ot her it will take 21 days for the condition to improve.
there are minor changes . do u think she is right??
cheenu last decadethanks sajjad for your reply.i will try the silica first as i am already taking it. if it doesnt work i will try aethusa cynapium 200. any help which can bring relief is appreciated.
cheenu last decadeI am always a bit chary of the 200 potency ,,, but anyway the low , repeated potency[6x] will work better with less aggravation.
walkin last decadeI agree with Walkin. I have almost always seen aggravation with 200c potency of many medicines. Either go lower in case of babies or go higher to 1M or more.
homeopathbuff last decadethe question is controversal.the main target is to select the right remedy.this is my belief and long experience.

we went to buy silica. but on the net at the bottom it says silica marina! are they same??
pls let me know asap.
cheenu last decadeNO'''
Something wrong with the information being posted by this site!
Silica is produced from silex , silicon dioxide , flint
Silica marina is WRONG - if the marina part is correct it should read ---
If you cant get the correct item at this site any homeopathic supplier will provide this universal remedy.
walkin last decadehi walkin
the scilla maratima is mostly used for cough or phlegm. thats what i hv gathered fro mthe different websites. pls correct me if i a mwrong as i dont know much about homeopathy. would it treat the gerd as well?
i am writing the symptoms of my baby again---
1) edgy and cranky the whole day. doesnt sleep in the daytime, has to be put upright .
2) rubs his left ear a lot. ( either below the ear or top)
rubs his face also a lot.
3)has phlegm and cough .
4)alternates between good and bad days..
5) throws up curd like substance after feeding.
6) wakes up for burps in the middle of sleep.
i a msorry for questioning but just wants to be sure as they hv already sent silica marina and now i hv to return it.
pls advice asap
