Silent reflux in 6 week old baby girl. Please help!

My baby girl is 6 weeks, almost 10 pounds, 23inches. She is healthy overall but does not nap for more than 15-20 minutes, waking up with a choking noise, i can hear the liquid coming back up and all she does is swallow back down. She does NOT ever spit, everything stays inside. She is a good eater and likes to sleep since she is always trying to but keeps getting woken up by the liquid coming back up. She is exclusively breast fed. She poops just fine, usually after every two feedings. Sometimes she is fuzzy at the breast and sometimes she does struggle with intestinal gas. Overall, she does not seem to be in pain but extremely bothered and of course, she is not able to sleep. At night time we have to co-sleep, she sleeps next to my breast so every time she wakes up she looks for it and attaches herself. I need help in finding something that stops the milk from coming back up her throat.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Look-up CALC PHOS.

You can try giving her in 6C or 12C potency one dose and see if it produces a response.If it doesn't produce a response, just give one dose of 30C after a days of observing her.

Don't repeat the dose unless she relapses.

Thank you for your response. I have been digging around and it seems that the possible best salt would he NAT PHOS. Why is CALC PHOS recommended instead of Nat?
Thanx again!

Cal-P is the right remedy based on totality of symptoms. I'd recommend 30c potency, two doses taken 12 hrs apart and report back.

One dose is made by dissolving one pill of the remedy (or one drop, if you have liquid remedy) in half a glass of cooled, boiled water. Stir it and take one tea spoon from it.

Thank you for your response, i had already started her on nat phos, i will have to allow 24hrs of dosage before starting her on tha cal-p (that is if she doesnt respond to treatment). I will post back once the 24hrs elapse. Thank you so!
