My infant granddaughter has baby reflux. What I have found helps her is to give her a belly massage using lavender oil just prior to feedings.

The process: Using a drop of lavender or two, softly, with a medium amount of pressure, massage the oil over the entire belly using a clockwise motion. This will also help with constipation, as the clock-wise motion massage supports the natural flow of the intestines.

She now loves the scent of lavender and it has become a comfort smell for her, too! When she gets fussy, I open a bottle and let her smell it - calms her right down.
