Attn Pls-Dr. Joe: Silent /Acid Reflux in 5 week old baby

Hello Doc Joe, I was blessed with a baby girl on 14th March 2014. she was tiny (ard 5.15 pounds) as compared to my first son (ard 7.2 pounds) but she didn't have to be in ICU or any other faciliy and we got discharged after 2 days only. My baby had little high billurubin level but at her 1 week appt, she was completely fine and weighed around 6.5 pounds.

We were very happy that she is finally catching up. But from second week, she started crying for long hours mainly at nights, sometimes gets restless after feeds, back arches a lot, had very frequent hiccups and milk came out of her nose while lying down. At her second week screening test, she weighed 6.11 pounds so doc advised her to give gripe water for gas & fussiness and to give her smaller, frequent feeds, to keep her upright for 15-20 mins after feeds and to keep her pillow elevated.
For few days, gripe water and these options worked, she slept peacefully but some days after smaller feeds also, she cried a lot, started gurgling and vomitting little bit and also milk comes out of her nose while sleeping. So we visited our doc again at 3rd week, now baby's weight was just 6.14 pounds, so doc told us that she might have to go on to reflux medicines, if vomitting and crying increases.
At her 1 month appointment, she weighed 7 pounds. She is still having all the problems. Her vomitting also increased even after smaller feeds, and she cries for long hours in the evening /night, gets very restless and in pain, vomits milk or curd after few feeds and milk comes out of her nose while taking burp, some times she is content and sleepy after feeds but other times has coughing like sound in breathing and starts vomiting, seems to be in pain, has lots of wet burps in which liquid comes out in her mouth and cries a lot. Now she is 5 weeks old and exclusively breastfed. We are thinking to start Prevacid to give her some relief from Silent Reflux, as advised by doctor. But I really don't want to expose my little girl to these medicines. I have absolute faith in Homeopathy and used it frequently for my son. My Indian Homeopathy doctor prescribed Aethusa 30 (2 drops in boiled water) twice a day to my baby. But I could not find it here and not yet ordered it online.

We are from India and live in Dallas, Texas, USA from last one year. We don't know any good homeopathic doctor here and medicines are also not widely available. I am so tense and tired, So I thought of consulting you before ordering all possible medicines to cure this problem. Please help.

With thanks and Regards,
Anita

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi Anita,

Please google Mary Aspinwall ( master homeopath in Santa Barbara, ca)
or Lia Bello ( master homeopath and nurse) in New Mexico.

Both of these women will do Acute complaints like colic on the phone for $50 and that
includes some follow ups. They are both also homeopathy teachers, well known
and respected.

This is a great resource for moms bc things are always coming up with
kids.( Remedies are available in Whole Foods in Dallas and in Vitamin shoppe-
They usually have them in 6c to 30 c and they have the cell salts 6x-
other potencies you can order online from this site if needed)

Mr. DeLivera ( not a Dr.) has his own site-www.joedelivera.com and you
can talk to him easier on that site- he has one method for colic and uses that only.

Regards,

Simone717

I was advising on a post which is at the top of this forum today entitled:
'The Arnica Miracle Continues'

http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/79462/3

I came across your post and note that your baby seems to suffer from Baby GERD for which I have pioneered a therapy which no other Homeopath uses so far and which I shall copy below:





I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies and 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.

Thanks a lot Simone for your quick reply.
I enquired in Whole Foods on Preston Rd, Dallas but they didn't have Aethusa 30/Nat phos 6x in the store. I will try to order online.

BTW do u know any good homeopath in Dallas, Texas area, I will prefer to visit for any problems /complaints and to get some peace of mind as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot Joe Sir for your response.
I am giving 7-8 smaller feeds to my baby and makes sure to burp after feeds and she is responding better, feeling sleepy when not completely full.

I will order Nat Phos 6x online but it will take one week or so to reach me. So I will report the progress, once I can start your prescribed therapy.

Regards,
Anita

I will look for you for someone good
in your area- Texas has a lot of good
homeopaths.

On Nat phos 6x- it is a cell salt- these
are tablets. Whole Foods carries Cell
Salts- Hylands brand they are near
where the remedies are- you should
call them up and ask them if they have
them.

Vitamin Shoppe if you have that there-
also carries Hylands cell salts.

Otherwise order Nat phos 6x cell salt
from Vitacost online.

Hi-

All the homeopaths are in Richardson- so I guess you will have to go there.

Here are two people recommended by other classical homeopaths.http://jjpruzzohomeopathy.com/about-judith and

David Shapely-.http://www.homeopathydallas.com/

If you google these people there is more info on them-

Best wishes,
