Infant reflux helpMy daughter is 3 1/2 months old and is suffering from reflux. The doctors have put her on prevacid and zantac. The prevacid caused her to become constipated and I am really not happy having her on such strong meds. I have read on different threads and seen a lot of recommendations for nat phos. I have also seen some other suggestions and I am just wondering what I should try first. She has silent reflux so her symptoms are arching her back and crying while you can hear her gargling in the back of her throat. She has a lot of trouble nursing and is constantly pulling off and choking. She likes to be held upright. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Aethusia 30 is the ideal homeopathic medicine for those babies who cannot tolerate breastmilk and have vomiting, regurgitation and/or silent reflux. It has been said to give this medicine twice a day until symptoms improve. Best to consult a qualified Homemopath to confirm.
If you are breastfeeding it is important toremove all dairy products from your diet for 3 weeks and see if your baby inproves. Your baby may be lactose intolerant or even allergic to the whey, so if you are bottle feeding place your baby on a lactose-free or whey free formula for 3 weeks. Hope this helps.
