  • My son was on Nutromagin, it's more expensive : ( and zantac every I think it was 6 hours, just make sure you give the medicine on time, if you forget the poor guy will suffer till it kicks in.

  • Mine refused Neutramagen. She took one bottle and that was it - no more. We ended up on Good Start and she did great.
    She also was put on Zantac which really helped. Without it, she would arch her back, scream, and thrash around. With it, she was much calmer, didn't arch her back and thrash as she was trying to get away from something.
    She outgrew it around 7 months.

  • My little guy is on Similac Alimentum and half a tablet of Prevacid once a day. Keeping him upright as much as possible as helped a lot. I bought him the Fisher Price Infant to Toddler Rocker and it has been a lifesaver. It keeps him more upright than a bouncy seat and the vibrations help to keeps him from being fussy. Another thing that helped was placing a folded towel underneath the side of the mattress where his head lays. He HATES being flat on his back and the slight angle seems to make him feel better.
