Reflux or possible GERD

Hi. My daughter is 3 mo old. She was on Prilosec for about a month now for her reflux which did a decent job of helping her but she still was really fussy in the evenings and would arch her back and draw her legs up. Her sleeping did improve once she started these meds at night. Our insurance didn't cover it so last week we were switched to Previcid. Since the switch during the day she seems ok, still spits up A LOT. Nights are awful! She is hard to put down at night and wakes anywhere from every 30minutes to every hour and a half. If I'm lucky I get a 2 or 3 hour stretch. When she wakes she is immediately fussy and I feed her and afterwards she squirms as If she is uncomfortable and will only sleep on her side beside me. She also has gotten extremely gassy!

I am willing to try anything for her to help her feel better and to help me get some sleep! If you think the Nat Phos 6x what are dosages for her? Her last weight 3 weeks ago was 11Lbs2oz and ahe was 22 7/8'. She is growing great!

Thanks!

You can either go down the path of homoeopathy, which requires a detailed discussion of her individual symptoms and personality, or you can go down the path of 'Nat-phos therapy' which is not in any way related to homoeopathy. You will not be able to do both, but it certainly is your choice.

I am not sure which route id like to take. Whatever seems to work best I assume. I am completely new to this.

Most people on this site would say homoeopathy is usually the best choice. I have based my career around it :)

1. What is the age, weight & height of child

She is 3mo old (on 6/20/14), weighs 11 1/2lbs, and is 23 inches tall

2. Physical appearance: Thin, Medium, Chubby

She is fairly lean so I would say medium to thin and tall/long.

3. How is the child mentally & emotionally normally

She is my first buy I would say normal. I'm not sure exactly what this means. She is developing normally from what I read. Normally a happy baby girl (as long on meds for reflux) most of the time. Occasionally fussy in evenings. Does NOT do nights well. Seems very tense and must fight with her to go to sleep for over an hour then only to have her wake every hour and a half (normally to eat as she is EBF). She is alert and smiling often and taking in her surroundings. Not yet grabbing at toys or holding things.

4. How is the child mentally & emotionally during reflux/gerd

She seems uncomfortable or painful. No interest in anything and difficult to soothe. Sometimes lying on tummy for a bit helps. At night refuses to sleep in crib will just cry so will go to sleep in our bed then after a feeding I move her to it and see if she will stay asleep. She wakes at night fussy and will cry, very gassy, and after finishing eating gets very squirmy and takes a while to resume sleep.

5. What are the symptoms of reflux/gerd

Spits up all the time. Sometimes projectile. We both go through outfits daily. She seems asymptomatic through the day otherwise, but only will nap (if I can even get her to take one) in her swing (so sitting more upright with motion), with onset if evening, increased fussing ness, drawing up legs after meals and crying and headbanging(not bad with meds), cries if put on back in crib even when elevated on one end. She is very gassy, exceptionally worse at night. When waking for feeding immediately fussy and crying and passing gas. Eating seems to soothe her and then sometimes she goes back to sleep eating and I can move her or I need to keep her with me bc she is fussy and squirmy if I touch her. She wakes about every hour and a half and goes to bed anywhere from 9-11 (goal is 9) and gets up between 9-11 (goal is 9-930). Naps are sporadic of I can get her to take them. I follow her signs that's she is sleepy but then she refuses sleep.

6. How is the child’s stool

seems normally to me. It's the light brown to yellowish color. Most of the time seedy occasionally more runny. Most of the time one stool a day, sometime she will skip a day or two.

7. Does the child have gas (flatulence), if yes, a lot or less

Yes during the day seems more mild but during the night is is a lot. She aeems uncomfortable and the more she cries the more she passes and vice versa.

8. How is the child’s desire to feed

Great. She is growing great! 70% for her age. She eats all the time and actually trying to distance her feedings a bit. Her only problem is during the day getting distracted and pulling off to look around.

9. Is the child teething

Not that I am aware. Her gums still feel soft and she shows no signs of drooling, pain or discomfort, chewing on things etc.

10. How is the child’s sweat (smell, where, little, a lot etc.)

I don't think it has much of an odor but she doesn't hardly sweat. I've only maybe two or three times felt her forehead clammy or her chest
A little damp but that's it.

Your remedy is: Colocynth 30c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 48 hrs 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.

FOR CHILDREN:
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.

Do I find this remedy on this website?
Also, is it safe for a 3 month old baby?

And we just refilled her Prilosec script. Do I need to finish that first?
My guess is she shouldn't be on anything else...

Thanks!

Dear Firstime,

You can find this remedy in Whole Foods, or at the Vitamin Shoppe if you
have one ( google to see if they have it first)

Or you can google it online, or order off this site remedy shop ( 3 usa suppliers)

You would stop the prilosec when you start the remedy.
