My son is 9 weeks & has developed reflux on the formula. We changed

Formula twice and this one is best for his constipation. His reflux is pretty bad. He throws up gripe water, celery water, & gas drops work on occasion. Doctor wrote script for prilosec but I'm curious if this is common & what other moms are doing that doesn't involve drug therapy.

Hi my daughter had reflux really bad an the ped told us to use enfamil for spit it have added rice starch so it stays down better in the stomach it work good it will not stop the vomiting but it helps
Also feed your baby on time even if you have to wake him and burp him several times during feeding.hold him upright for atleast a half of an hour before putting him down as well as keep his head elevated.keep in mind as he grows it gets better.good luck
