newborn with constant abdominal pain

my baby is 4 weeks old today and dosnt stop crying with what looks like abdominal pain, nothing helps him, we tried different position, gripe water, warm bath, nothing helps!!!! the only thing that calms him down is to nurse him, i end up nursing him every 10 minutes, i know its bad but thats the only thing that helps, the doc suspects reflux and im not interested in giving him zantac, after doing some research i see that Natrum Phos 6X might help, but would love to know if there is a more specific treatment i can give him, thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your baby has colic and they don't know the actual
cause of this.- usually this can go on to 3 or 4 months
with what looks like cramps, pain in the abdomen.They
gain weight, are hungry and want to suck.

The right hoomeopathic meds can solve this in a few
minutes to an hour. You have to find the right one and
experiment till you do.

A. excessive bloating and gas- Magnesia Phos
B.Doubled over with knees to chest-colocynthis first
and then Magnesia Phos.
C. Very fussy, inconsolable babies, often arch their
D. Frequent belching and better after belching-carbo veg
E. Gets bloating and gas from anything the mother eats
before nursing the baby- Lycopodium.
F. Baby is happy except when colicky and sweats a lot
on his head- Calcaria Carbonica.

The nat phos 6x is a cell salt and used a lot when
the baby is spitting up the milk. It does not sound
like this is what is going on.

On the above remedies you start with 3 pellets of 30c dissolved in a couple tablespoons of water. Give this every 4 hours till improvement- when improved only dose when
things return-

After 3 doses and no improvement switch to another
remedy. I would start with the magnesia Phos 30c and
see how that goes.

One of my kids had colic, and screamed all the time, for
a couple months. They have constant gas pains is what is going

If your pediatrician has checked the child out and the child is
eating and having bowel movements, and gaining weight,
then most likely it is gas.

The homeopathic remedies are at whole foods, the health stores.
I would go out and get, Mag phos 30c and get the natphos 6x
which will be in a bottle made by Hylands and says cell salt 6x.

Try the mag phos first, if it does not work try the half tab of
nat phos before you feed the baby.( dissolve it in
a tablesppon of water to make sure baby gets it)

Also look at what you are eating, maybe you have to stop coffee,
onions, and gas forming foods.

Always check with your doctor first if you are worried and it seems
that you have done that. The only thing that worked for me (
I did not know about homeopathy then) was driving the baby
around in the car, which stopped the yelling.) It was an exhausting
time, but they grow out of it.

thanx so much for your help, even driving dosnt help :( and yes i've been to the doc 3 times and to a lactation consultt also but no luck.
so if i understund you well, i start with mag phos 30c? how much do i give him?

3pills is one dose. Dissolve them in a couple tablespoons
of water. Spoon it into the mouth or use a dropper.

Then see if improved. Try this 3 times with a gap of 3 to 4 hours.

If nothing changes then it is not going to work.

Go to the next remedy.

Why are you seeing the lactation consultant? Do you have
enough milk?

PL also try
1. Chamomilla-30 3 drops in one teaspoon water thrice a day for 2 days and then let me know

Goldie, are you in usa?

If so, pick up the chamomille 30 c bc we do not have
liquid here, and have that on hand to try the same
way as mag phos. One of these things is going to work.
simone717 9 years ago
seeing a lacatation consultt because he wants to nurse every 10 minutes so wanted to check that im doing it right and was also worried of oversupply syndrome.

i should try chamomilla together with mag phos?

also when do i give it to him, before or after feeding?

yes i live in new york

Ok- if child is gaining weight and milk supply is good-
then they want to suck bc it soothes them. My
child did the same behavior.

Do you have a pacifier? You should use one, so you
stay on track.

No, do not give together. You try one, if it does not
work, try the next one.

Try one 3 times, if it does not work , then try
the Chamomille.

Give it before the feeding.
simone717 9 years ago
ok thanx, im gonna start today. i do give him a pacifier but it dosnt always work, 75 % of the time he refuses it, he looks like he s always in pain, even in his sleep.
