One Mom’s Story: Kimberly and Baby CJ
If you Google infant reflux (or GERD), you come across loads of discussion boards where mom’s are at their wit’s end trying to help their refluxy baby. Constantly spitting up, long periods of crying, having to sleep upright–reflux is no fun. Infant reflux medications can be prescribed, but often, due to the lack of testing (Zantac, for example, has only been tested on babies one month and older while Prevacid has been tested on those one year and older), mother’s are unsure if they should administer them to their children. This is where Kimberly, mother of CJ, found herself.
CJ not only had reflux, but he was colicky as well which meant Kimberly was being hit with a double whammy. She remembers it like this, “CJ was very fussy at night. Very gassy. He would not sleep, I had him in a car seat in his crib so he could sleep up right.” When CJ was two months old, Kimberly could take no more. Although he was on Zantac for the reflux, things weren’t getting better, especially his colic. So, she Googled “colic” and up popped Colic Calm. After reading that Colic Calm not only helps with colic, but infant reflux as well, Kimberly decided to give it a try. And did it work? You bet–Kimberly describes it as a “lifesaver.”
Kimberly would administer Colic Calm to CJ before bedtime. She says, “With Colic Calm he would sleep in longer periods.” He was also able to sleep on his back, in his crib. Best of all? Kimberly was able to take CJ off the Zantac. She says, “I absolutely LOVED Colic Calm. It was a life saver. And since then, even though my son is no longer taking it [he's now three], I refer anyone I know with a newborn to Colic Calm. I swear by it.”
