    Default acid reflux

    i suspect my baby has acid reflux. we are both miserable. i've heard of giving maalox to relieve her symptoms, does anyone know the dosage for an infant?

    Have you thought about whether or not you may have an overactive letdown (forceful letdown), rather? That could cause the baby to be fussy and gassy too. Here's a link:
