  • Mine started on Zantac in the NICU after her esophogeal surgery. They ended up switching her to liquid prevacid, she gets 1/2 a tsp once a day. You'll notice it help your baby in a few days if its working. They also have those over the counter drops you can get in Walmart and such. My daycare provider taught me to put a few drops in her bottle- it kills the bubbles. I dont really use the drops anymore, just her meds. Good luck.

  • The Zantac never worked for my baby. She was switched to Prevacid and it worked pretty much immediately.

  • It took a few days to a week before it worked for our son.
