  • Breastmilk is the best milk to give him. Research has shown that babies who recieve breast milk have fewer symptoms of reflux.

  • Breastmilk when possible, and maybe a visit to the pedi GI if you haven't done that yet. They can prescribe something if needed.

  • The only thing that worked for my daughter was a combination of Nutramigen, rice cereal, and prevacid. She had it so bad and we tried every formula as I was not able to breastfeed. Our insurance company covered the nutramigen because it was prescribed by our pediatrician. I know there are so many people who say that rice cereal in the bottle is gross and babies shouldn't have it like that but once we started this with the prevacid she was a totally different baby and by different I mean happy!
