Gaviscon Infant for effective treatment of regurgitation/reflux in infants and children.
Gaviscon Infant is suitable for both breast and formula-fed babies alongside existing feed. Easy to use sachets can be mixed with water or milk feed, during or after a feed.
Gaviscon Infant is a powder for oral administration. Each sachet contains one dose. Prepare immediately before use, as directed on pack. Do not give more than six times in 24 hours. Gaviscon Infant is not to be used in infants under 1 year of age, except under medical supervision. Always read the label.
Infant reflux is a common condition that affects 50% of babies in their first three months.
Infant reflux mainly occurs in babies as they have an underdeveloped valve between food pipe and stomach.
Infant reflux typically occurs after feeds in the form of regurgitation but can also give rise to other troublesome symptoms.
Excessive crying often after a feed
Difficulty keeping feeds down
Sometimes arching the back after a feed
Gaviscon Infant works by thickening the contents of the stomach.
This helps to stop the stomach contents escaping into the food pipe and therefore helps to control reflux symptoms.
Gaviscon Infant works in a physical, non-systemic way meaning it is not absorbed into the baby bloodstream to work.
Gaviscon Infant can be used with both breast and formula fed infants alongside their normal feed.
Sachets can be mixed with water or milk feed and given during or after the feed.
If you find a spoon isn’t working, you can try using a pipette when feeding.
