Zantac (Ranitidine) for babies…
My Daughter (almost 3 months) have just been prescribed this for reflux. She is having 0.4ml three times a day. My question is two fold:

1) Do any of you remember how much your child was prescribed at about the same age as my Daughter?

2) When I was pregnant I had really bad acid reflux and felt the constant need to burp (which began really painful) so I was given Zantac/Ranitidine tablets which worked a dream. However, I NEED my Daughter to burp during the day and with feeds as she suffers from GI problems and since starting the medicine yesterday her burps seem to have diminished. Anyone else experienced this or has she suddenly just got lazy with burping?

My daughter was prescribed this at 3 weeks (she’s now 4 weeks.I was told to give her.8ml twice daily..She burps sometimes and sometimes not..And she’s still spitting up immediately after every feed..(Ibreast feed and supplement formula.) I’m taking her to the doctor tomorrow because I think shes sick..Good Luck with your baby! Call your pedi to makesure everything is ok!!

1. I believe my son was taking 0.3 ml. But he probably only weighed 9 pounds, so if your daughter is heavier that may explain the dosage difference.

2. I always had trouble burping my son, but I never connected it to the Zantac. I think he was like that before he started taking it, but now that you mention it, I’m wondering.

My daughter has been on Zantac for 3 days now and it seems to be working great! She is 7 weeks and she is getting 0.6ml twice a day. She does seem to burp less than she used too but she is not screaming in pain like she was before. She is still spitting up a little after feeding, but spit up is normal. Throwing up like she was doing is not normal. So yea, it does seem like she has less gas. But if your little one has gas or anything I am sure she would let you know.
