7 month old with reflux

My son was diagnosed with reflux at 3 months and put on Zantac...I hated giving him medicine...so I researched methods of soothing and have been using them since with no real problems besides spitting up after eating a little....well since he hit 7 months old he is showing all symptoms of the reflux again...barely drinking a bottle and up literally all night screaming and groaning and grunting in his sleep...last night he had 5 instances in a row where he stopped breathing for a few extra seconds and gasped and gagged for air...I am increasingly nervous and scared I have brought him to the regular drs and they keep telling me he is fine and trying to push meds down his throat...I'm looking for any help I can get...he has not slept well in 3 nights please any advice is welcome

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

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

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

It is essential 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 .


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.

Thank you so much for your quick response. I didn't mention that he is formula fed and he also has been on solids for a month now without and reflux symptoms until just recently after his 7 month birthday....my apologies on that...So is there anything else i should be doing besides the dose for him? i am very greatful for your response

I note that you started him on solids as early as a month ago when he was just 6 months old.

I believe that this is the reason for his current distress as his digestive system is programmed to process milk, formula or breast, till about the 10th month when baby can be slowly introduced to solids.

Continue with the Nat Phos 6x after every feed and increase the milk feeds he gets today.

Yes his pediatrician said we should be starting solids at 6 months of age....I will start the dosage you suggested thanks again for your help very much appreciated

hello, this is indirectly related - have you ruled out a possible posterior tongue tie? They can be hard to see/diagnose without really looking, and often times are overlooked. My daughter had a posterior tongue tie and was not found by the doc or lactation consultant...I figured it out myself.
Just a thought, as a parent I left no stone unturned. http://kiddsteeth.com/dental_topics.html#evaluate_and_diagno....

best to you-
