Reflux in preemie newbornHi. I had my daughter at 28 weeks via c section due to severe iugr. My placenta was not providing her with proper nutrition.
In the nicu, she was in vent, Cpap, feeding tube. While in nicu, she began to drink 40-50 ml of milk on avg 8 times a day. She did not show signs of reflux.
She came home Friday and I have been struggling to feed her. She wakes up hungry and wants to drink. After burping first time, it's hard to have her drink more. She arches her back and head, and moves bottle out of mouth. Her avg is now 30ml
Her pediatrician diagnosed her with reflux yesterday and has prescribed Zantac. Initially she wanted me to use Prilosec but insurance won't allow it.
She is drinking similac neosure 26 calories. Her current weight is 6.3 lb and 19 inch. She sleeps well when at an incline.
Please help me with a remedy!

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. Please note that you must get the Biochemic Cell Salt of Nat Phos 6x which is always in tablets and not in pellets which is the Homeopathic version of the same remedy and will not help the patient.
It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.
You will STOP all other drugs to enable the Nat Phos to cure Baby.
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.
