    Default Reflux & formula

    Hi, we went home from hospital on nan pro gold. We swapped to nan HA gold after a few weeks hoping his reflux symptoms would get better (before we knew it was reflux)
    We then saw a paed who said it was silent reflux and started him on losec
    He also suggested trying kariacre Pepti jnr or elecare which he gave us some to try
    After a day of Pepti jnr
    Our baby has now become really fussy and doesn't want any of them
    Has anyone found either of them helpful not sure if I should persist or go back to nan HA
    I know it takes more than a day to take affect
    We see the paed again next week

    Hi I gave my babies Karicare, just the regular variety, not the gold. I found the gold too rich for their tums I don't know if that is an option or not for you though. Best of luck x

    Default Reflux & formula

    How about a soy formula? DD had silent reflux from Cows Milk Protein Intolerance but was able to tolerate soy.

    What dose of losec is he on? How old is he?

    Did your paed suggest a reflux formula? My dd is on losec and Novalac reflux formula which I have found really good. It thickens in the gut not the bottle so is much easier to get down. How long has he been on losec for? My dd started a week ago and it has messed with her poor gut a fair bit so I'm hoping it starts helping soon. In saying that though we are already noticing a difference in her.

    Eta...sorry I just realised you said silent reflux so not sure my post is very helpful sorry!

    He is 6 weeks old and has been on lose now for almost 2 weeks
    Paed didn't want us to try soy cause my sister has a severe soy allergy and he thinks with the allergies in my family even though it's not me he thought an anti allergy one would be best??

    Ok, that makes sense - though there's no evidence to prove a genetic link with regards to allergies, it's better to be safe than sorry with allergies especially with other possibly suitable formulas out there.

    Apparently the Pepti jnr is quite "bitter" tasting that could be why she isn't taking it too well

    Hydrolysed or partially hydrolysed formulas like Elecare or Pepti Jnr are significantly thinner than regular formulas. For reflux bubs the thinness can mean that they reflux the formula more. You could try thickening the formula with Karicare Feed Thickener. Just be wary and take the thickener slowly as it can cause gut bubs problems with constipation, etc.

    DS had severe reflux and CMPA and was on thickened Elecare for 12 mths. It was a real game changer for us. Wishing you the best on your reflux journey. It can be a nightmare until you get meds and allergy/intolerance sorted (though not all refluxers have food issues).
