REFLUX symptoms, baby reflux remedies. COLIC driving you to despair? Looking for a solution you can trust? For over 25 years we have been helping new mums with reflux symptoms, baby reflux remedies, colic remedies and advice on getting your babies feeding back on track. It even works on constipation!

Rhuger Mixture is a safe, natural product created by an experienced pharmacist who can also give FREE advice on use with antacids, feeding tips and other frequently asked questions.

How does Rhuger work?

Rhuger has a three way action on the surface of the stomach and gut by relaxing the smooth muscle, releasing trapped air, emptying the stomach and aiding the passage of contents through the gut. If you are using a dropper to administer the dose, use 5-10 drops or by syringe use 1 to 2 mls with equal amount of boiled water from jug. The Ginger works faster to relieve colic and reflux symptoms if warmed up. Direct dose with a syringe or doser into baby’s mouth.

From 4 weeks to 16 weeks, a baby’s stomach may double in surface area increasing the need for dosage adjustment as more air can be trapped on the surface and in the folds of the stomach and small intestine.

WHAT ARE THE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS?

Rhubarb Liquid Extract
Ginger Liquid Extract
Magnesium Carbonate Powder

HOW DO I GIVE RHUGER TO MY BABY?

Rhuger is best given before feeds and in small frequent doses. It is most effective when the dose is warmed to body temperature. This can be done by warming a teaspoon with hot water, or by using a little expressed breastmilk, before administering directly to baby. Rhuger can be added to formula or given during feeds. Give Rhuger separately to Gaviscon, thickeners or Losec and Ranitidine.

WHAT DOSE SHOULD I GIVE TO MY BABY?

Rhuger works mostly on the surface of the gut wall, so it may require you to give doses before every feed for several days in order to begin to see improvements.

Newborn Babies (2-weeks): 0.5ml up to 6 times a day.
Babies (6-weeks to 12-weeks): 1ml up to 6 times a day.
Infants (3-months & over): 2mls up to 6 times a day.

Maintain for at least 2 weeks before increasing (not decreasing) doses. Rhuger may be helpful in older infants when solids are introduced or at weaning if constipation occurs.

HOW LONG SHOULD I CONTINUE WITH RHUGER?

It may take several days to see any improvement in unsettled behaviour after feeding. Winding should become easier and signs of discomfort reduce such as, tight tummy, arching of the back or pulling up of legs. In infants from two weeks old it is safe to maintain a dose 1ml six times a day for as long as it may be necessary to treat these symptoms. You may continue with Rhuger as long as baby grows and bigger and longer feeds are required.
