    Default Formula for reflux

    My possum will be 6 months at the end of the month so I will need to give her the next stage formula. At the moment she is on karicare aptimal gold +HA 0-6 months.

    I have previously tried her on specific reflux formulas and she hated the consistency. So really I'm just looking for a formula that will be gentle on her tummy.

    I'm a bit lost when it comes to formula and she's been on this one since birth. Any tips would be great xx

    Is there a stage 2 with this particular formula? Perhaps that would be the easiest transition for her especially if you are both happy with it.
    although many people don't think a stage 2 formula is necessary

    There is but I figure if there is one that would be better in her tummy, I'd rather use that.

    Karicare de-lact is very similiar and a lot gentler.

    There is also a karicare goat that is the same consistancy and gentler but is very very pricy.

    What age does the de-lact go up to? Is it good for babies that aren't lactose intolerant?

    De lact is birth to 12 months. Not having lactose will not hurt a baby. Lots of reflux babies are slightly intollerant so it is more gentle on them

    My DS1 had reflux and colic and the best formula I found for him was NAN HA. Wouldn't try anything else now
