Nat Phos 6x for a 6 week old babyHi,
I just bought Nat Phos 6x on someone's recommendation for my baby's acid reflux. The baby is 6 weeks old and weighs about 11.5 lb. I really need advice re: dosage, as the directions on the bottle do not indicate dosage for babies (only 2 y.o. and up).

his site http://www.joedelivera.com and read on it and
talk to him.
He suggests people start with a half tab after a feeding not
to exceed 5 half tabs in a 24 hour period. You can dissolve
it in a tablespoon of water and spoon into the mouth or
use a dropper. I think that is the easiest way to know the
baby actually got the remedy. As things improve you can
reduce the amount of times till not needed. Try this for
at least a day or so to see the effects. Sometimes there is
relief but the baby may need an entire tab for a few days
and then down to the 1/2 tab.
There are other remedies for this if this does not work. But
you can talk to Joe specifically for this method.

I've tried Nat Phos, and I'm not sure it worked for my daughter. She was even more uncomfortable during the three days that I administered it and eventually got a bad case of diarrhea. So, I stopped after 3.5 days. I feel like the reflux is getting worse, she doesn't spit up as much, mainly it comes up to her throat and she swallows it back. Her sleep is constantly interrupted by it and she seems miserable.
You said there are other remedies. Can you recommend?
Thank you in advance!
