  • I did but it didn't seem to work very well.. I also tried Tummy Soother made by Gentle Naturals it worked alot better.. You can buy this at Walgreens and if I remember correctly it is cheaper.. Goodluck

  • we were recommended Zantac and got a prescription from the doc for it for reflux.. if your baby just spits up but not excessively then he/she prob doesn't have reflux and mylicon for the belly or the tummy soothers that PP suggested would probably work. If your baby spits up a LOT or in big amounts then he/she may have reflux and need a prescription. Check with your doctor first!!

  • mylanta no!! pepto no!! I don't suggest them,, get something that is recommended for the right age. Talk to your pediatrician. Spit up happens, If it's really bad then you need to get him checked for reflux and gerd. mylanta is for adults, it even says on the bottle DO not give to anyone under the age of 2!!
