Infant RefluxI'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.

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.
