get some homeopathic tissue salts nat sulf and nat phos.. is good for acid reflux and can be given to infants and up.. they disolve in the mouth..just give 1 or 2 pills to her when she needs it.. The pills are only about the size of the end of and eraser on a pencil..but a little smaller.. they melt as soon as you put them in your mouth. I use this stuff myself. there are no side effects.. all naturall and is used for infants and up.

I've never had to deal with it but I was born without a top stomach muscle. It meant that everything that hit my stomach came straight back up again.

It did correct itself after 6 months though. The only thing my parents could do was soothe me as best they could. They weren't allowed to feed me extra and no medication would work.

The only thing I would suggest is go back to your doctor and see if there is anything else available. The good thing is she is putting on weight.
