Infant Reflux

I've seen quite a few posts about treating infant reflux with Silica, but I'm still confused by the dosage. I bought Hyland's Silicea 6X.. And if I understand correctly I should take 1 tablet/day for 1 week. Is this correct?

My son is being treated with Pepsid, but his twin sister is showing some signs of reflux, and I'd like to try the silica before I give her meds too. They are 7 weeks old.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
My preemie daughter had reflux. She was given reglin(liquid) and when she got a bit older they just gave her zantac. With the medicine we couldnt even tell she had it!

I have recommended Nat Phos 6x for adults but have no experience with babies. If however you intend giving Silica which is a deep acting remedy it may be better to consider giving Nat Phos 6x (biochemic) instead. Dose for a baby is 1/2 tablet dissolved in the feed.

Pepcid may work for children but the after effects are far from desireable. Suggest you use Nat Phos 6x instead. The adult dose is 2 tablets after a meal but for children the dose can be reduced to 1 tablet after meals.

The results will be noticed almost immediately after a meal within a few minutes.
