    Default Anti reflux formula

    Ds 5 months is now mixed fed, bf and also anti reflux formula. We are currently on novolac been using it nearly 2 weeks now and ds likes it and will drink 210ml no problem but he is getting sad with bad wind and also starting to get constipated. Any recommendations on a ar formula that won't cause constipation please? Im hoping to get him off bf and fully onto formula but won't do it until iv found one he's comfortable on. When I get a new brand can I just start using that or do I have to introduce it slowly?

    I should add that the formula is helping with the reflux he keeps it down way better than the breastfeed and is happier after a feed, its a few hours after a feed during the night he's struggling with discomfort

    My DD got constipated and had terrible wind, she is 6 months and im still using infacol for wind which really helps her.
    I used coloxyl drops when she started on formula and was getting constipated to soften her stool so she could poo. It helped her become regular.

    DD is on medication for reflux and shes on nan ha gold. I think they say it takes about a week for them to get fully used to it ao don't worry if you don't see results straight away. We also put infacol in all the bottles. Good luck, its horrid when they're constipated
