Gaviscon Infant Sachets provide fast, soothing and long-lasting relief from the pain and discomfort of heartburn and acid indigestion for your children.
It can be used to treat gastric reflux (a condition in which the acid stomach contents flow upwards into the food pipe) and flatulence caused by gastric reflux.
Gaviscon infant sachets are an oral powder which is suitable for children ages 1 to 2. It contains two main ingredients, sodium alginate and magnesium alginate. Both of these are known reflux suppressants.
These form a gel in the stomach when they come in contact with the stomach acid. This causes stomach contents to thicken and prevents reflux.

My daughter had silent reflux from about 3 weeks. First though it was colic, but found out it was actually reflux. Got prescribed Gaviscon by the doctor. I have now used it for 4 days and I can definitely see results. She is finally able to sleep and doesnt seem too bothered by the reflux anymore. Still some, but definitely getting better. The only problem is it has made her quite constipated. Apart from that I am very happy with this and so is my daughter :)
My son struggled with reflux until at 4 months we were told to use Gaviscon infant (I dont like giving medication), used in every bottle with SMA hungry baby milk made it thicker and stopped him being sick and not sleeping at night. Fantastic product - I would definately recommend it to any parent.
