    Default Formula

    I am wanting to introduce my bub to formula as I will be heading back to work in a few weeks, she does have trouble with reflux so I was looking into the Aptimal Gold. Do I need to visit a doctor to find out best formula for her?
    thanks

    Default Formula

    Trial and error is all that works, a doc can't help. My DD had reflux and I found Heinz nurture worked best for us. Personally I'd avoid anything with "gold" in the title, the extra iron clogged her up.

    This is exactly right.

    With DS I tried everything and ended up giving him soy for his colic and reflux. It was the only one that helped for him. With dd she was easy and had Heinz nurture

    Default Formula

    Karicare AR (anti reflux) worked great for us, it's thickened so easier to keep down. It's cheaper at Discount Chemist Warehouse too (about $19) Good luck I hope this helps

    I think it is just trial and error, just make sure you stick to one for a while till bub gets used to it, to really see if its agreeing with your bub.

    I second either Bellamy's Organic or Heinz Nurture.

    We use the AR formula also. It's worked the best for us.
