    I think Jack has acid reflux :cry: he has all the symptoms :cry: i tried infant gaviscon on his last feed and just wondered if anyone knows how long does this normally take to work.

    I heard it was pretty much instant - it lines the throat so the acid doesnt burn? (I think...)

    I found with Morgan that there was an significant improvement within the first couple of feeds... but got the full effect after about a week really.

    She still gets it bad from time to time, but no where near as bad, and she's been on the Gaviscon for about 6 weeks.

    I would say try and persevere for about a week, but if you don't see much improvement, then go back to see the GP.

    Absolutely... EVERY feed. Morgan is bottle fed, so I add a dose to every bottle.
