William is 11 weeks old and was diagnosed with reflux or GERD at 4 weeks of age. We started him on Zantac Liquid twice a day 2 weeks ago and he hasnt done much better. I took him to the doctor yesterday & they gave us a prescription for Prevacid solu-tabs. WE CAN'T AFFORD THE PRESCRITION AT $119 FOR A 30 day supply. The doctor always said to descrease his formula from 5 1/2 to 6 ounces every 3-4 hours to 3 1/2 to 4 hours every 2-3 hours. I have seen a small amount of change in 24 hours. Any other suggestions, I will continue to do Zantac 2 times a day.Answer Question

You can still breastfeed. La Leche League Leaders and lactation consultants help women relactate all the time when their babies get sick from formula and they can't afford meds or special formulas. Of course breastfeeding would be better for the baby than all the meds. Help from LLL is free.
