ATTN: Joe De Livera, Infant Acid Reflux

Hello, I'm new to all of this so bear with me!! I'm a first time Mom with a beautiful 14wk old baby girl:) She is suffering from what I believe to be severe silent reflux. We are actually on our way to a G.I. Specialist as right now. My fear is they are just going to prescribe a ppi, and I'm frightened of the side effects....., she is already on Zantac, (really isn't helping much) I really don't want to try anything else like that!! Her symptoms started pretty much from birth and around 2wks really started to get worse. Symptoms are frequent swallowing, gulping, crying, arching back, wet burps, hiccups, coughing, sneezing, wheezing, sounds congested while feeding, poor sleep, a bit of drooling, and she actually doesn't spit up all that much, just a lot of swallowing. She eats well and often as I'm pretty sure she's comfort feeding, but I'm happy with that because her weight has been great the whole time, she's about 13lbs now. She was born 6lbs1oz. I'm just afraid she's going to have feeding aversion eventually because of this, she literally cries all day long because of the pain:( I desperately would like to help my daughter any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Also, she is formula fed.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The remedies that have proved to be very effective for Baby GERD are:

Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed

You will STOP all other drugs prescribed for baby which as you have already seen have not done any good.

Please confirm that you burp baby immediately after each 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.

You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby.

Report progress as often as you wish on this thread .

Thank you for the timely reply. I am currently not breastfeeding so would it be alright to give her the Arnica 30c and how exactly should I do that? How long should I give the Nat Phos 6x? Is it okay to dissolve it in a bit of formula after feeding or should I use water? Thank you again for your time.

You will NOT give baby Arnica 30c which I clearly indicated was for you.

You may however give her the Nat Phos 6x which you can dissolve in a teaspoonful of her feed.

Thank you for clarification, we will start as soon as I get the nat phos 6x, hopefully our local health food store has it, if not ill order it and start as soon as it arrives. I'll let you know how it goes, thanks again!
