We didn't use the meds for reflux for our son, i didn't see the point. If it's working great. The Enfamil formulas i posted earlier are meant for spitty baby's. My son didn't grow out of it until 9 months when the Dr made us change him to whole milk.

Look at the ones on the left hand side. I think one there would work best. This brand is more expensive where i am but it could vary where you are. My son could only use the gentealese and the thickened. We tried low iron but it only worked for him for a week or 2. How long did you give her to adjust on this new formula you tried?

If you are producing still then try that yes. Did you check the labels for how much iron was in them? Did you try one specially formulated with low iron or one that is for spitters?

Talk to the doctor. It could be reflux or perhaps an allergy is developing. We had to keep switching formulas for my son until we found one that he could keep down.

Talk to their Dr. Our son had bad reflux as a baby. We changed his formula to enfamil gentealease and Enfamil thickened. We didn't use any "drugs" to help the reflux. When he was 9 months old it came back and we had to change him to whole milk and he never spit up again. There is a HIGH number of iron in infant formula and for an obvious reason so maybe ask your Dr about options on lower iron formula's none worked that great for our son but there is less iron in whole milk and that's why he didn't spit up again. I am in NO WAY saying to change your child to whole milk unless advised by your Dr but i'm just saying my story.
Good luck and in the mean time stock up on receiving blankets:)
