Product Description

Gaviscon Infant helps to prevent infant reflux by thickening the gastric contents. It contains Sodium Alginate and Magnesium Alginate (alginate is a naturally occurring substance found in brown seaweed) that interacts with components of milk feed in the infant’s stomach leading to contents thickening. It is designed for babies aged 0-12 months who are either breastfed or bottle-fed. It is non-systemic (does not go through blood stream) and well tolerated.

Each sachet contains 225mg of Sodium Alginate and 87.5mg Magnesium Alginate that serves as gastric contents thickener in the infant’s stomach

For breastfed infants, mix each sachet with a teaspoon of cooled boiled water to form a paste. Add another 2 teaspoons of the water and mix. Give using a spoon or a feeding bottle part way through the infant feed. For all other infants up to 2 years, give at the end of the meal.

For bottle fed infants, mix each sachet into 115 mL of milk feed in the bottle and shake well. Feed as normal

Use 1 sachet for infants under 4.5 kg, use 2 sachets for infants over 4.5 kg

If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
