Interviewer: Baby is vomit in the beginning; it doesn’t mean everybody baby has to be work up some get occasional vomiting and you know all have to be treat for reflux is that sure? Interviewee: The normal amount of vomiting and a 4 to 5 month old is five times a day. That’s normal that’s what human nature, what’s what Mother Nature happen in humans. Interviewer: To go extensive workout and they don’t require a lot of that. Is that true? Interviewee: Absolutely that’s correct. Interviewer: I think depends along towards treatment, I’m not saying is that true would made be over treating a lot of babies in a lot of medicine. But they ask me a good history, a good evaluation and for a good selection so it topic a kids are really need them Edison. Is that true? Interviewee: And you have to be able to reassure the family that nothing is wrong, you have to be able to reassure that family that the baby who is very happy is spinning off all over the place. Interviewer: And gaining weight. Interviewee: And gaining weight and has no other issues to be concern about the side from the spinning off is the happy speeder and by giving medicine in fact you are not making that baby any happier and you are not making that baby any healthier and you are not making that baby stops speeding any if they ask too. Interviewer: If people should realize there is I think how fast the periods of babies you cry, so how did you know if that is even that’s you on the day that’s consider relatively normal and it doesn’t always need a lot of medicine to get kind of condition is that true. Interviewee: That’s called colic and that actually is found in 15% of the infants of the word, the moms could strap the baby’s on day two of life in going to the fields in deepest Africa. Have 15%, the moms who are working as the executives in wall street and that is an avenue 15% so it just part of our schusses and in fact it that bares some resemblance to the irritable bowel because as a consequence of excessive gas there is the distension and there are receptors, there are signalers on the outside of the intestinal tract and one day get it excited they give the sensation of pain. The difference is that after three years, I’m sorry excuse me. After three months there is a maturation process that takes place in the intestinal tract so that the amount of gas that’s generated the amount of distinction that it takes place is dramatically decrease and so that’s by colic itself will resolve at the end of the treatment. Interviewer: So if you wait long enough that mostly cases but then if you just pretty good we get to that. Interviewee: Though not of that. Interviewer: And not without a alone with medicine now. Interviewee: That is absolutely correct. Interviewer: So basic word, is no side effect in this drug that we use.
