  • Ingredients

Gaviscon infant sachets provide fast and soothing relief from the pain of heartburn and indigestion in babies. Reflux is common when babies eat certain foods or drinks. It can also happen from other health problems or as a side effect of some medications. Gaviscon infant sachets are for children between 1 and 2 years old.

The sachets contain two main ingredients known to reduce reflux. Sodium alginate and magnesium alginate form a gel upon contacting stomach acid. This thickens the food inside the stomach and stops acid from coming back up. This product does not contain sugar.
