I went to sleep school and the doctor I had fully agreed our son had silent reflux where did you go? I went to QEC
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!
Mother to three gorgeous little men
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.
