Which is better to use for acid reflux.  I've been told once that powder isn't good for acid reflux.  I can't find anything online to back that up.  From your experience which is best for acid reflux?  Is it ready to feed, concentrate, or powder?

I'm not sure - I always used the powder cuz it's the cheapest. My son had some sort of reflux, but we just dealt with it cuz we couldnt afford fancier formula than the powdered

Right now my LO is on soy and she is having problems with it.  Someone told me to try the liquid instead.  Personally I don't think it's going to matter while she's on soy.  I need to switch her formula but wanted to see what others experienced before I went out and bought something else.

hmm didn't realize powder was heavy.  for some reason it seems like the liquid would be heavier.  you learn something new everyday.  thanks.

my other 2 dd's were on concentrate.  only b/c that's what wic gave us.  it was harder to travel with but we made it work.  we don't qualify for wic this time so i went with powder b/c it's cheaper.

I dunno about the reflux but my kids were on powder but when I tried to use ready to feed or concentrate (usually when we traveled because I didn't trust the water lol) they flat out refused to drink it. It smells and tastes really different than the powder.

ya they do smell and taste different.  with my oldest i tried to use both.  like when we went out i would bring the powder so i could just make it where ever we were.  she was always like what is this and she didn't drink it as well.  when we were home we used concentrate.  i wasn't planning to go back and forth with this LO.  just trying to find what could work for her.
