    Sleep school worked wonders for us so I'll never know how much of my ds's and unsettled behavior was due to reflux and sleeping issues etc....I am so confused.... but somehow the sleep school Dr's medical opinion does not fit with the idea of reflux (as opposed to silent reflux).

    All three oft boys had and have reflux. They were all breastfed at first, then changed to prescription formula. I have stomach issues, and I think it is just inherited in this family. I would try adjusting your diet and seeing a dr ASAP for some medication. Big hugs!

    Breastfed my 1st, she had severe reflux, didn't breastfeed #2, no reflux, #3 bf and formula top up, slight reflux.

    Reflux has nothing to do with formula vs breastfeeding.

    My son was given formula within a few hours as his sugar levels dropped. My dd didn't have formula for a few weeks yet my daughter had silent reflux and my son did not - total opposite of the claims in the article.

    I think some will run with anything that puts formula in a negative light, never mind whether there is substance to the claims or not.
