I am a SAHD, so first off, thanks for letting me in the cirlce! I have a many questions about the use of Probiotics and/or Aloe Vera Juice for the treatment of reflux/colic in my 16w old son. Has anyone had success with these treatments. Any non-success, failure or even negative effect? Which has been more effective? Any experience with a combination of the two? What are side effects? What does your MD say? What does your homeopathic doc say? Is there any reason to fear these methods? What have you been using for dosage?
My son is currently on meds prescribed by our Ped (omeprazole) and I hate giving him drugs, especially the type that require mixing (on or off pharmacy site, it scares me), but my wife is by the book and refuses to go in any direction other than that of our ped. I am anxious to try safe and tested methods of homeopathic treatment, but I must present my love with a strong argument and testimony.
Please help. We are both devastated by his spit-up fits that cause him to lose his breath and puke out his nose. It is awful.
