My 5 week old was dx with Acid reflex at 4 weeks. We have him on medicine as well as rice cereal in his formula and nothing is working to help keep his formula down. We have even switched formulas. We are running out of ideas and dont know what to do. I didnt have this problem with my 1st born and the doctor keeps saying to do what we are doing and he will outgrow it

I just took my son to the doctor this past friday cause yet again his acid reflex was acting up. So now we think he is also lactose intolerent(SP). So the doctor just put him on Similiac Isomil Advance Soy and also is still having us put the rice cereal in his bottle. We have had no spit ups since... Hopefully we finally got it figured out this time and things will get better..

My 8 wk old has reflux so badly she sometimes spits up the entire 4 ounces through her nose and mouth...it's really bad. The MD's just say that "she will outgrow it", and I am doing everything from sitting her up to feed, burping her throughout the bottle, keeping her up after the bottle for 20 minutes, sleeping her on an incline, etc. The best thing yet has been for me to change formula to Enfamil A.R. lipil, which has rice starch in it. It helps that we only have one spit up per day now instead of 3-4.

Yes he does arch his back.. but the thing that i have tried is while feeding and burping to cover him with a blanket and this helps in keeping his back and chest warm so he dont spit up as much when he does

Our son has it too. He is on medication for it too. He eats fine and burps...but a few minutes later it just starts flowing out. The medicine is helping.



Does your son arch his back a lot? Thats one of the signs the dr saw.
