Babies Babies

Is it common...????

Posted by   + Show Post
For a baby that could possibly have reflux issues to want to feed alot? I've heard because the formula going in their belly soothes the reflux discomfort- I'm just trying to figure out if dd has it- taking her to pedi next week- thanks in advance :)

I didnt read all the other replys so sorry if this is a repeat.. my dd had horrible reflux as a baby and threw up all over everything all the time.. i noticed w/ baby food she couldnt handel like the thicker foods banannas ect of that consitincy(sp) made it worse. Also certain juices like w/ banannas in it or orange juice in it.. also my ma always said to feed her less more often. Instead of the norm (example 4 oz every 4 hrs or whatever). Good luck

But she's been this way since birth. And she gets fussy like 20 min after eating


Quoting expectantmom81:

Doesn't sound like reflux to me. i would say growth spurt ix more likely. My oldest had bad reflux. He would constantly spit up, arch is back, and cray during and after eating.

I called and asked his nurse. Originally he was EBF and I knew he had milk issues when he didn't tolerate BM. Even now, he is drinking almond mild and not cow's milk. Hoping he'll outgrow the intolerance.

Quoting mandapanda82:

Did you consult your pedi first?




Quoting TerriB0311:

I didn't mix it. The Alimentum is one of the gentlest formulas out there. He did fine from the first dose. I also put a wedge under the mattress so he was inclined a bit when he slept. Hope it helps!





Quoting mandapanda82:

Do I need to mix it with her current formula if I get the alimentum- do gradually adjust her to it? Or is that not necessary?








Quoting TerriB0311:

My DS had a severe milk protein allergy and spit up a lot! Soy actually made it worse. You may want to consider Similac Alimentum. Once I switched to that, he was a new baby. Good luck! I know how hard it is to watch a LO in pain.
