My DD had silent reflux/gas bubbles and she started off with 1 ml of Zantac 2x a day along with gas drops and that didn't work well so the Dr upped it to 1.5 and nothing. Desperate for a solution, and with the claims of Baby magic tea, it almost seemed too good to be true, but it worked like a lifesaver.

My son was given Zantac but he hated it so much that he would spit all of it out instantly. AND he also vomited even more than usual and one of them was a massive projectile. He literally covered my bed, me and him. I felt uncomfortable giving it to him so I actually went with a homeopath's advice and drank a lot of chamomile tea and gave him a tiny bit in a bottle (on her recommendations). He improved dramatically within a couple of weeks. He is fine now. He has a few bad days every now and then but I think that's more related to food I may have eaten that he doesn't agree with. Good luck :)

My son was started on Zantac, and although it did work to some degree, it wasn't working as well as we had hoped. At 4 months we switched him to Prevacid, which works much better. The one drawback is that on our insurance, the Prevacid has a much higher copay than the Zantac.

My daughter started out on Zantac and it worked for about a month but started to kind of wear off. She was switched to Prilosec a few weeks ago and she is a new baby I love it and highly recomend it.
