Confused about reflux remedies

Hi- I am fairly new at homeopathy. I have a 10 week old daughter who has reflux. She is gaining weight, generally doesn't seem uncomfortable (although much crankier than my son was), but she spits up a ton. It doesn't bug me during the day because it's just a mess to deal with but at night, it prevents both of us from getting a good night's sleep. A doctor in our practice prescribed zantac and my doc was out of town, so I used it for a week, but then my doc came back in town and said she prefers not to use it since she's otherwise doing well. I hate medicating my children, so I followed her advice and stopped.

I have seen posts about using silica (she's exclusively breastfed), chamomilla and nat phos. Can I use more than one? Which is the best? I don't know anything about nat phos, so I'm inclined to use the other 2. If I use, what dosages?

Thank you soooo much in advance,
A very tired mom...

I am very concerned that your doctor has prescribed Zantac for your 10 week old baby. I am indeed surprised that this powerful drug seems to be the preferred choice even for a baby and am glad that you have stopped it.

The remedy that I have recommended for reflux in babies and also in adults is Nat Phos 6x. 1 tablet is dissolved in about 20ml boiled water and half teaspoonful is given in the teat to your baby. This will usually help this problem.

Please report your baby's response on the day after you use this remedy which you may like to know is very safe to be used.
