3 week old with reflux


I have a 3 week old with reflux ( screams during and after meals sometimes, spits up a lot, difficulty burping). His pediatrician prescribed Zantac but it didn't seem to be working well. I stopped the Zantac and started doing nat phos 6x. 1 tablet after every feeding the first day and half a tablet after every feeding the second day. The first day he seemed to be responding well. Today, the 2nd day, he has been spitting up, screaming during and after feedings, not sleeping well and only wants to be held. I'm not sure if it's because I stopped the zantac or if nat phos is having a adverse effect. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Stop nat phos for 24 hours and see what happens.

When you have too much of a remedy then it can cause the same thing you gave it for.

Cell salts wear off after a time.
The baby may need a half tab one time, every two days or so and then maybe once a week, and less and less.

Or child may need a different remedy.

Thank you very much for your reply. I will stop the dosage. I will try half a tablet every 2-3 days and see if he improves, then continue to taper off the dosage

For now, after 24 hours, see if child is
Doing better.

If so, then do not give any more, wait until symptoms show up again.

1. Wait- if after 24 hours no better then nat phos is the wrong remedy.
2. If better then you know overdose wore off.
3. Wait again, for symptoms and then try only one half tab.
Only dose when symptoms are there
And then wait a day.

My baby is doing much better.Thank you very much for your help. His symptoms have decreased. The only thing that still seems to bother him is gas during a feeding.

Good! Dosing has to be done /
Monitored on each person as everyone is different in reaction/sensitivity.

For gas, check on what you are eating. Onion, garlic, beans, cabbage etc and see if you need to stop these foods until nursing is over.

You can use some mag phos 6x
Couple tabs in a quarter cup of warm water, give child a tsp every 20 minutes to see if that helps.

I've just ordered mag phos 6x.
I'm bottle feeding only so I will give this to the baby as you instructed.

Is it 1 tsp every 20 min just for a day or as needed?
Elttrut 4 years ago
Just as needed. You could try 3 tsp
20 minute intervals . If no relief then it is not going to happen.

Hi , my baby is 5 weeks old . She was referred to an ENT at 2 week because of heavy and noisy breathing. She also cries and bring food back in the mouth when sleeping. I'm giving her probiotics and gas drops. I gave her half tab Nat phos 6x last night twice. She couldn't sleep well and keeps bring food back up in the mouth while sleeping. I know because I see her swallowing. Also she wakes up and starts crying after putting her down. Should I continue dosage or stop.
