Suspected infant refluxMy daughter is 1 month old and gets very fussy after feedings. She spits up a couple of times per day but most of the time she becomes very stiff and looks like she is going to spit up and makes a sour face. She is also very gassy and only pooping once every 3 to 4 days. She is exclusively breastfed and is gaining weight well. She was 8 lbs 10 oz at birth and was 10 lbs 6 oz at last appt (4 days ago) and just turned 1 month old.
She also does not sleep well unless held upright, especially during the day.
I suspect that I have a strong letdown and have tried to recline while nursing.
I have read on several sites that Nat Phos 6x can be very helpful with reflux. I have the tablets here but have been hesitant to try. What would the dosage be? Any guidance would be helpful so my sweet baby can be happy. Thank you!

You can start from one pellet. Twice a day. For two or more days. Although there is no side effects of these salts. If someone is giving even a wrong salt it will remove from the body.
