  • Try infacol that work wonders for me 
  • Normally you can't get Gaviscon infant without a prescription. I'd recommend a trip to the GP to get your baby checked out rather than self medicating at home. If it's just standard reflux (and nothing underlying) then the doctor will hopefully prescribe you some so you can try it out.

    In terms of whether it is safe for a newborn then yes, technically it is. But you shouldn't be giving it without agreement from the GP.
