Reflux is extremely common in babies and almost 70%of babies will have some reflux. It is difficult to say with certainty when it will go away in your baby as this is very variable. Some babies lose their reflux by 6 months othere go on to 18 months or longer. It all depends how long it will take before your baby's valve at the end of his oesophagus takes to mature and start working normally.Gaviscon is the mildest of all reflux tretament and cannot be expected to do any more than to slightly reduce the acidity of the reflux. You should keep your baby on Losec or on of the generics such as Omez which is easier to use.The dose is 10mg daily.Introducing solids will not help your baby's reflux and you should wait until he is 6 months if possible.
