Ok, I had my second child about five days ago and now I know for sure that she got silent reflux. DS suffered from silent reflux as well since a few weeks old and only had recently grew out of it. DD's symptoms seems more severe at the moment and all I am thinking is what did I do wrong to have two reflux babies.
I was searching the internet about how to manage silent reflux and came across this article.
Although it wasn't a scientist paper, it does got me thinking.
It says introducing formula just after birth would be the cause. With my Ds , he was given formula on second day due to my milk supply. With DD, she was given formula hours after birth because I had nothing coming out of my breast and she was hungry. Not sure if it's the coincidence or something else. Want to hear others experience, did your little ones suffered reflux and also given formula not long after birth ? What do you think?
Also, inspired by this article, I am going to try cows milk and gluten free diet. Might start taking fish oil and probiotics as well. It is so hard setting my little one constantly gagging and not being able to feed due to pain. I can't believe I am going to start the journey all again when I finally felt relieved with the absence of reflux in my son.
