  • (ugh... I hate it when people think that breastmilk is best. Its best for some... and not best for others. Dont force your opinions on other people...)
    The Gentlease is great!!! It worked wonders for my girls!

  • my son is breastfed, but sometimes hes just a real hungry lil dude and i give him a chaser of similac advance. he never spits up and had reflux when he was under 4 weeks til birth. he also slept in his car seat for that amount of time. funny about the similac, after its mixed it smells just like breastmilk. good luck in finding something for your baby.

  • What type of Enfamil are you currently using? My daughter used the enfacare and spit up all the time, but when we switched to the Lilip, she was fine. The gentlease is supposed to be good too. Maybe just need to test out a few products to see how baby reacts. I overheard my doctor recommend the Good Start sensative type formula to another patient whose baby was senstive to another product. Good luck

  • My daughter has acid reflux and before she was diagnosed we thought she was lactose (my brother and I both were when we were infants), so we switched her to soy formula. A few weeks later she was diagnosed and put on medicine. We now have her on Target brand of soy. Since we switched from Similac soy to Target soy she has only thrown up twice, and it has been almost a month. Another good thing about Target soy is that it is half the price of Similac and most of the other brands.

  • I used Enfamil A.R. that is specially made for acid reflux..its thicker so the baby doesnt get acid. It worked for my daughter!
