7 week old daughter with questionable reflux

My name is Courtney and I have a 7 week old daughter. When she was 5 weeks old she was hospitalized for high blood pressure identified at her nephrology appointment. She was born with right renal agenesis. From her nephrology appointment we were admitted directly to the hospital to monitor her blood pressure. We stayed for 3 1/2 days and during that stay, they diagnosed her with reflux and started her on Zantac. During that time, they also gave her a blood pressure medication x1 when her pressure got severely high. They wanted to discharge her on zantac, but I did not feel comfortable, as she presented with no reflux symptoms I could identify. I wasn’t very keen on putting my 5 week old on medications either. On top of that, she presented with thrush and had completed a 3 week treatment with Nystatin. Ever since we arrived home (approximately 2 weeks ago) she has been quite fussy, especially during the 6-8 o’clock hours. This is completely new, as prior to admission to the hospital she was very calm, rarely cried, would sit in her swing and play on her play mat with no issues. Now, she tolerates about 5 or so minutes before crying. She also began showing symptoms of reflux since the Zantac and nystatin. She arches her back during feedings, (I exclusively BF), spits up frequently after feedings, and at times is inconsolable.

I began Culturelle Probiotics for Baby, a probiotic and Vitamin d drop. I am attempting to cut out all daily in my diet, I feed her with her head elevated and she also sleeps with her head slightly elevated in her bassinet. I recently purchased Nat Phos 6x. Would I administer 1/2 or a whole tablet after feedings? I know packaging says ages 2 and older. Also, is there something I can give for her thrush? It appears to leave and come back again. I have been doing one cup of water with 1 tablespoon of baking soda, use q-tip to wipe inside of cheecks after every feeding.

Thank you I’m advance for your help, it is greatly appreciated!
