infant reflux in my 4 month old

My son has had infant reflux since 4 weeks old. Lately, it seems we are constantly increasing his meds with his weight gain, which I am not a fan of constant medication. He has been in constant pain, especially in the car when he is slumped in his car seat and pressure is on his stomach. He has gotten to the point where he refuses his bottle and makes these crazy dying cat like noise because of the pain. He wakes up in the middle of the night with coughing. I feel so bad for him. I have been reading about the nat phos 6 and was wondering what the dosage would be for a baby who is 16.6lbs. at 4 months.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please review some of the posts by Joe De Livera. He prescribes Half a tablet of Nat Phos 6X to be dissolved in baby's milk bottle. Just search for his cases to reconfirm.

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. 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 .

How long is the nat phos 6 take to work? I started giving it yesterday at his 2pm,6pm,10pm and now this morning at 6am feeds and I still see no change. He's refusing and turning away from the bottle still. He woke up coughing and in pain last night. He's getting 1 tablet per feed. 4 months old.

Please confirm that you are giving your baby:

Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell Salt.
This is always available in tablets.

The other Homeopathic version is in little pellets which do not work for baby.

It will work within the HOUR and judging from the fact that you have given 4 doses it is most likely that you have not got the correct remedy.

I'm giving hylands #10 natrum phos 6x is that not correct? If not, let me know brand you recommend?
lnicky724 last decade
I cannot advise you as I live in Sri Lanka and do not have any information about Hylands.

You can inquire directly from the vendor if their product is a Biochemic Cell Salt which is precisely what you need for baby.
Joe De Livera last decade
It is a biochemic cell salt. I wonder why it's not working.
lnicky724 last decade
It is very rarely that a patient in this case your baby, does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone.

I feel that it is time to add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to the Nat Phos 6x you are giving him.

Please order it from Hylands in the Liquid Dillution and you will use just 3 drops in a 500ml bottle of spring water which is then the remedy. You will give baby about 3 ml of the remedy water twice daily and report results.

London-if you need the nux vomica 30c
get it from Ainsworths or Helios pharmacies.

usa- this site- remedies shop.

Update: I actually have the nat phos 6 to my son 20 minutes before his feed instead of after because he refuses the bottle and has some pain feeding. Well I tried before the feed and he drank the whole bottle, calmly, and burped quickly. I don't know if that is a coincidence or this is a miracle!!!
lnicky724 last decade
I have just seen your post arriving on my computer and am delighted to note that your giving the Nat Phos before a feed has worked what we hope is the 'miracle'. The time in London is 0237 GMT and I am glad that you shared the good news.

Do continue this protocol and report if this improvement continues later today.
