Thread: mylanta

  1. #1

    Default mylanta

    just been told by doctor to get mylanta for my baby and to give 1 ml after each feed. went to the chemist and they hadnt heard of baby mylanta and said the doctor was referring to a small dosage of the regular mylanta that adults have. does this sound right? is there a specific baby mylanta or just the adult one?

    Ellie was put on 1ml of adult mylanta at every feed and then when this showed to be working...she was put on 1ml of baby losec twice a day and slowly weened off mylanta.

    I found the baby gaviscon didn't work for Ellie b/c it had to be mixed with water or her formula and she wouldn't have her bottle if it was mixed in. But she slurped the minty mylanta straight down...
