Gaviscon Infant Sachets will help to keep your child comfortable and ease the distress they may feel when reflux makes them spit it up or even experience heartburn.
What is gastric reflux?
Gastric reflux happens when your stomach content works its way up from your stomach into your food pipe. This will then cause irritating symptoms like heartburn which can be very distressing when it happens in babies who don’t understand what is going on.
What are the symptoms of gastric reflux?
- Being sick.
- Spitting up more than usual.
- Bringing up milk during or shortly after feeding.
- Becoming distressed.
- Being unsettled during feeding.
- Crying and not settling.
- Not gaining weight as they’re not keeping enough food down.
- Coughing or hiccupping when feeding.
