Baby with Gerd/acid reflux

Hello my 2 and 1/2 month old baby girl was just diagnosed with GERD and prescribed Zantac. I would not give her this unless all else fails. What homeopathic remedies could help her?

When she was only 2 days old she choked on spit up and stopped breathing and turned blue. Thank God we were still at the hospital. They suctioned her and saved her life. She went to the NICU for a week. The last 2 months she has been a fussy baby from 5pm to 12 pm at night, struggled with spitting up, whenever she spits up it comes through her nose, she also has done a few episodes that last about 15 seconds where she tenses up, turns bright red and screams in this high pitch painful rattling scream.

Please help. :)

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that this remedy will also help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

Hi Joe

My Nat Phos 6x just arrived, however, it did not come in liquid form. They are tablets of 6x potency. Can I make a mixture with water in a tincture? Or would I dissolve half a tablet in room temperature in a tincture? I give her 1, two oz bottle a day with her probiotic. Would this mean that I would have to give her a bottle after each feeding?

Please get this straight.

A TINCTURE is a medicine made by dissolving a drug in ALCOHOL.

You CANNOT possibly give a baby alcohol as it can end in disaster.

I can see that you are NOT reading and UNDERSTANDING my therapy as I have clearly stated above in my last post to you:

'Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. '

Nat Phos 6x is always sold in TABLETS which are soluble in milk or water. Start with half tablet but if it does not help baby's GERD you can safely increase the dose after every feed to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

Stop the Probiotic which is not indicated for a baby and also the Zantac.

Thank you Joe for you quick reply. I did read your whole message and was just confused with the tincture instructions in the last paragraph you wrote. I was wondering if there was a dilution I could make with breastmilk or water that I could then give her a set # of drops after each feed.

She is definently NOT on any Zantac. Thank you again. I will report her progress in 24 hours. So far she took one dose last night before be and she hasn't woke for her morning feed yet. She was fussy last night with a little gas

I believe that you are just stressed perhaps to breaking point.

Take the Arnica 30 and the Nat Phos 6x I have already prescribed and it is likely that they will both help you to relax.

I do not read any mention of a TINCTURE in my last para which you referred to.

Please do not give baby anything I do not recommend.
