Infant acid refluxCan anyone help with infant acid reflux? My baby was diagnosed with MSPI and Reflux at 3 weeks of age. He is on Neocate formula for the MSPI as I wasn't able to BF. We tried Zantac and Bethanecol with no success. He is currently on Prevacid solutabs 15mg daily. The Prevacid has helped about 60% which for me isn't sufficient. We have also been prescribed Carafate. This makes my baby sleep awesome (about 10hrs at night) but I only give it to him when we're desperate because its contains aluminum which has been linked to autism. I've read a little about the Nat Phos 6x, but am very confused. Any tips would be appreciated. My son is 9 weeks old today. Thanks in advance for any help. :)

DO NOT GIVE him 'Zantac and Bethanecol with no success. He is currently on Prevacid solutabs 15mg daily'
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. If you discover that baby does not respond to the half tablet you can increase the dosage to a full tablet given after every feed but not to exceed 5 tablets in 24 hours.
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 .

Thank you so much for replying to my post, as I am sure you are a busy man. I wanted to add that we exclusively formula feed with a prescription formula due to a milk protein intolerance and inability to breast feed. Does this change what we need to do?
