Attn: Joe De Livera Infant Reflux and ConstipationHello- my two month old was prescribed zantac and prevacid at one month for reflux. Unfortunately, we have been using it and although it has stopped her constant crying, she is still spitting up and has become VERY constipated. We have used suppositories and those seem to work, but she seems unable to move her bowels on her own.
I am breast feeding her and I have tried eliminating trigger foods to see if that helps, but have seen no improvement.
I have read through this posthttp://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/282037/
and can relate completely to her son's situation. I am wondering if Nat Phos 6x is also a possible solution for my daughter. I am wondering what the dosing specifics would be for her and what will help her constipation?
Thanks so much,

and communicate with him and read more cases if you wish.
You can start your baby with a 1/2 tab of Natrum Phos 6x cell
salt, which you can buy at Whole Foods or Vitacost online( hylands
You give the baby this after a feeding, I think it is easier to
dissolve the tablet into a tsp. of water and spoon it or dropper
it in, to make sure the baby gets the remedy.
Do not do more than 5 doses in 24 hours. Try this for a couple days.
Joe suggest that bf Moms also take the nat phos and Arnica.
Many Moms who are not doing bf, just use the nat phos and it
works fine. You should make sure your own diet is not
acidic ( coffee, vinegar, etc, and eliminate gassy foods like
onion , cabbage etc)
Try this for a couple days and see how it works for you- reduce
the doses as the child improves. There are other remedies for
this if this does not work out.
