    Default Formula advice - reflux

    Sadly last week I had to make the decision to stop breastfeeding. DS has been a terrible feeder at the breast since day one and after 14 weeks of fighting, pain, tears and supplementing my DH and I said it's enough. I wanted to be able to enjoy the last month I have at home with bub before back to work.

    We have supplemented with formula since DS was 3 days old and we used standard karicare. We also tried s26 newborn but that made him sick.

    DS is almost 15 weeks old and was diagnosed with silent reflux at 3 weeks old he is medicated with omperzole but we've found that since he is eating more with the bottle (proved he wasn't getting enough from the breast) the reflux is really bad. I changed from the karicare to aptamil gold AR this week and although he is having less regurgitation he doesn't seem to be enjoying it - today I've been lucky to get him to drink 150ml where he was up to the 200ml.

    Anyone have another formula they would suggest?

    Thanks! We've actually at the recommendation of my chiropractor started him on karicare goat and it seems to be making a huge difference so hoping this is the one for us.
