5 months acid refluxDear homeopaths,
I am a mother of 5 months old baby girl, who is suffering from infant acid reflux. She is a formula fed baby at the moment. She started showing symptoms when she was 2 months old. Has at-least a week to 10 days every month which are worst with gas and reflux. We got prescribed with Zentac and it use to wrk before. Now since 3 days her crying and symptoms are worst and the medicine is not of much help it seems. I tried to do some research and came to know about homeopathic treatment by Dr. Joe for infant acid reflux. I would love to try Nat phos 6x to treat her acid reflux. But wanted to make sure that I should give 1/2 tab after each feed mixed with milk. If she does not respond then should increase the dose to 1 tab.
Should I give her veronica or not?
She is feeding OK. But is vomiting and crying after feeds. She gags a lot during and after feed and sometimes I feel that the acid has gone to her respiratory track and make her really up set with constant crying and a lot of sneezing.
Please help us to get out from this very stressful situation.
I will only start the dose after your green signal.
Thanks from a crying mom :(

Wait and watch the changes you see in her symptoms for the next few days.
If you see a change, you can repeat this remedy whenever required.

Can I mix it with her formula milk?
For how many days should I try it at first to expect any changes?
I heartily appreciate your help.

If you buy it in the pellet form, you can dissolve 2 pellets in a tablespoon of water and give it to her.
Don't mix the remedy with formula milk. Try to give the doses when you are not giving her feed one hour before or after.
Do it for a single day only, that is some 4 doses only. Observe changes from the next day for the next few days.
You can also try 30C potency instead of 12C.
