If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
Moms and dads: reflux occurs after a feed for about 30% of babies below 1 year of age.
Why is this happening? Well, your baby’s gut is immature and the liquid diet is a contributing factor as well. While the problem normally resolves itself before your child’s first birthday, it can continue after this point too.
If it persists, we know how distressing it can be, which is why we’re here to help. Gaviscon Infant is specially formulated to stop baby reflux. The easy-to-use powder sachets can be mixed with water and given to babies during or after breastfeeding, or mixed with milk and given to babies who are relying on a formula.
Gaviscon Infant is designed to form a thickening gel, one that stabilises the stomach’s contents and reduces reflux episodes.
Easy to administer, Gaviscon Infant is sugar-free, and suitable for children between the ages of 1 and 2.
If your baby is under a year old, ask your doctor or pharmacist before administering Gaviscon Infant.
