Q.

Thank you!!

Thank you so much for the advice on giving my restless sleeper gavison!
She now only wakes once a night, compared to about 6/10 times!

My only question, is it save to give my 16 month old baby 2.5ml long term?

Once again, THANK YOU!!!

Gaviscon is very safe and you are giving her a tiny dose once a day. You should keep her on the Gaviscon for at least 2 months.Then try her off it. If she starts with her discomfort again you can re-start the Gaviscon.Keep on trying her off it again after about a month on each time.I am pleased that you are happy, you are very welcome.
