7 week old with acid reflux

Hello! I have a 7 week old daughter who we discovered had acid reflux at around 2 weeks old. She is very fussy and wakes immediately after you lay her down, kicks her legs in discomfort and makes a sour face usually after she eats (breastmilk fed only). We have tried Zantac (which lost effectiveness after 2 weeks) and then was switched to Prilosec compound about 3 weeks ago and now we are running into problems with constipation. I took her to the doctor today and they recommended a suppository which I gave to her for some relief. I have started taking probiotics myself in hopes to pass on some sort of digestive help for her via breastmilk. Please help! We are at our wits end :( Any advice is much appreciative!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hugs frm a 8.5 mths old reflux baby's mum. I am desperate! I will have to tell you that we were exactly like you. My baby still on Losec and is very constipated! Made his reflux worse actually....Trying to quit Losec, cut down to 2/3 capsule(20mg) a day but after a week, baby's been terrible! Just increased to 1 capsule per day and have seen slight result...Will have to wean him off as I think Losec is not good for his digestion develepment. He is now very slow re is solid intake and i have to say his digestion system has not grown much....maybe it is because of all the medicine he took??gaviscon,zantac and losec....
I will try to visit your post again in a couple of weeks time and wish your girl can be better soon.

Ahhh...8.5 months? I was hoping that it was true that doctors say it usually is gone by 3-6 months :( The constipation is awful! Today was day 5 for my poor baby and the suppository finally worked to give her some relief. I found this website from doing a google search and found a mom who wrote here and got advice about Nat. Phos 6x...and swears her son was cured in a short period of time! I am hoping that would work for us but I don't want to try anything until I hear from the doctor on this site :) Good luck to you too...

I am so sorry to hear that. My baby has mild reflux when he is 8 weeks. He is premature, he was born 5 weeks 2 days early. The pediatrician suggested me to add rice cereal into the milk and choose a bigger size nipple.
During February, it was horrible, I hold my son almost 24 hours a day. Every time when he fell asleep after feeding and burping, i tried to lay him down. Unfortunately, after 10-30 minutes, he started crying, I would hold him up and patted his back and he would burp, sometimes with the milk. The pediatrician prescribed my son Zantac. My husband and I and the pediatrician don't really want to use medicine, but no choice.
First weeks, we used Zantac on him, I also used Tummy Calm. I think it worked. When he was 11 weeks, he started to get a little bit better. Now, he is 14 weeks, he is so much better now. When he falls asleep after burping, he sleeps, horray! But sometimes, he may still has bubbles.
By the way, I still add rice cereal into the breastmilk, but I changed back to a slower flow nipple. During the feeding, he is more calm and not fighting with his hand. I doubt the flow of the bigger size nipple was too fast for him. Also, my husband uses Zantac to him when the baby shows the sign of reflux.
Before, I was so scared to feed him, because he might spit up any moment. Now, I still scared to feed him, but it sure is better now.

I am copying a post I have just made to another mother on Baby Gerd which I have had some success in CURING with Nat Phos 6x.



Re: attn Joe De Livera - nat phos 6x From Joe De Livera on 2013-03-23
Please DO NOT GIVE BABY the Prevacid which has various side effects for adults which you can read if you Google:
'The danger of using PPI drugs'

I shall copy my default therapy for Baby Gerd below:



It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

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.

Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose about 300ml after a feed twice daily.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.


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. You may like to know that this remedy will also help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

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

You do NOT have to use Nux VOMICA right now. You will only give him the Nat Phos 6x.

It has been 24 hours since we both started the Nat Phos and she has not spit up today whihc is good...she woke up an hour earlier than usual to eat but went back to bed very quickly! We still have not had a bowel movement since stopping the PPI on Friday....thought we would have seen one by now - could this possibly constipate her?

The action of Nat Phos is to accelerate the passage of food down the gut by increasing Peristalsis. In doing so it prevents the formation of acid reflux.

It also seems to help with Constipation. It will NEVER cause it.

Up to 4 days WITHOUT STOOL can be considered acceptable.

Is this remedy something I will continue to take and give her until she 'grows out of it'?

To ALL MOTHERS on this thread.

Please note that the remedy I have prescribed is Nat Phos 6x and NOT Nat Phos *6.

The dose to be used for a baby with Reflux is half tablet mixed in water or milk to be given immediately after a feed.
