Preemie baby with acid refluxHi my daughter was born premature by 8 weeks and was said to have acid reflux while in the NICU within the first 2 weeks there. She was put on Zantac and has been taking ever since. She is now 2 months and 3 weeks old...which really means she is 2 weeks old. We have increased her doses 3 times already and my wife and I are finally realizing that it is not working anymore. She has reflux while she eats now and it sometimes is to the point where it comes through her nose. I do not want to give her meds anymore. My wife and I were looking at Nat Phos 6x and doing some research on it. She is on the way home with the bottle right now. My only concern is how much should I give my daughter? I have seen some do half a tablet and others do a whole tablet. She is 6 pounds 5 ounces and 18 inches long. If you could please help it would be greatly appreciated.

I am glad to note that you have also prescribed this remedy and you may like to read my therapy copied below which has helped many babies.
I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.
The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:
Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.
You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby's digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.
You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.
It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.
You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.
If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.
