A little more about Gaviscon Infant Sachets
Gaviscon Infant Sachets: Things you need to know

 

What are Gaviscon Infant Sachets?

 

Gaviscon Infant Sachets helps to prevent gastric regurgitation in infants. It is specifically formulated for infants and works by thickening the stomach contents to help reduce regurgitation.

 

With its easy mix formulation Gaviscon Infant can be added to either formula milk or breast milk along with the existing feed so you don't need to change your feeding method. 

 

If your baby has gastric reflux, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Being sick

  • Spitting up more than usual

  • Bringing up their feeds (posseting)

  • Becoming distressed

 

What are the Active Ingredients in Gaviscon Infant Sachets and how do they work?

 

The two active ingredients in these sachets are sodium alginate 225mg and magnesium alginate 87.5mg. These reflux suppressants work together to ease gastric reflux.  They do that by forming a protective layer over the contents of your baby's stomach which helps to keep the contents from coming back up, reducing gastric reflux.
