Reflux in 18 month oldHi Joe
I have read so much about Nat phosphate helping reflux. My little girl is,18 months and was diagnosed at 6weeks. She is on losec mups to help control it but I'm anxious to take her off this medication now. I tried few times an symptoms of reflux returns. She can be very restless at night I don't know if her reflux is the reason.i can't get Nat phosphate in tablet form here in Ireland but I purchased it n tissue salts which is in liquid form. Can you please advise if this is same and how much dosage to give. Thanking you in advance.

The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.
You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) 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 every 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 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.
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.
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.
You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

And last question as I mentioned I have Nat phosphate in liquid form (tissue salts) is this,same as tablet form? It states on bottle to give two drops directly on tongue few times a day? Or should I try and order tablet form Nat phosphate online?

It is only this specific product that will help to treat GERD.
You do not need to give your 18 month old baby the NP 6x as it is very likely that she does not suffer from Baby GERD today. If she still does however, you may give her a tablet after a meal.
You do not also need NP6x especially today as you are expecting your baby in a few days.
