6 Month old, Reflux, Sleep

I'm looking for some help for my 6 month old baby. I believe that he is suffering from reflux. Some of his symptoms include frequent wet hiccups, spitting up mucous, arching back and will not settle while breastfeeding. He also hardly sleeps/is VERY hard to get to sleep. During the day he may take 1-2 naps usually only 20-30 minutes a piece. At night he is up very every 10-60 minutes and wakes up screaming/ very upset. He never falls into a deep sleep. He will not nurse laying on our sides. The only way I can get him to sleep is to either wear him in a sling or nurse him. Also his head always feels warm, and any time you touch it (i.e. holding him) it becomes very sweaty. (but no fever) He is breastfed with solid food (fruits/veggies? 3x a day. He is very big (21 lbs, 28in) We have been having these problems since he was born, and are hoping to find something to help!

Thank you in advance.

Your remedy is: Calcarea Phosphorica 30c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 5 days with changes observed.

TIME OF DOSE:
First dose: At night before sleeping.
Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you.

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.
