I've been reading this book "Superimmunity for Kids" by Leo Galland. In it, he recommends magnesium supplementation for babies with intestinal spasms and irritability or if the baby sleeps irregularly and restlessly.

Anyone heard of this? Is it safe?

He suggests 100 to 200 milligrams of magnesium a day, using either magnesium citrate or milk of magnesia.

The book is rather dated...written in 1988.
