Is it spit up or vomit? My son had reflux and was put on Axid. His formula was Enfamil Gentlease and that with the Axid really cut down on the spitting up and vomiting. I recommend going to your daughter's pediatrician before trying anything on your own though. Try only giving her one or two ounces and then burp her. Keep doing this and make sure she is feeding in an upright position. She will get really mad about the burping every couple of minutes, but it will help. In the meantime, make sure you have plenty of burp cloths! :)

Good luck!

My daughter was born 5 days early so she was not premature but she did spit up alot and i had 2 changer her formula like 3 times and the 1 thay finally worked was similac i think its a orange can and it has rice or starch something like that in it and it makes the formula really thick but not 2 thick it can not be swallowed cause it sits better in the stomach cause its thicker and she stopped spitting up just the normal amount when she burped but nothing like she was

try asking your doctor about another formula or maybe it might be that shes getting to much try as different bottle that might work to

You might want to ask the Dr. My baby was only 3weeks premature, but he had acid reflux really bad and they put him on Zantac. He still spits up but doesn't scream like it hurts.
