So my dd had her 4 month check up and she confirmed she has mild reflux. She recommended rice cereal in her bottle! 2 tsp. per 4 oz bottle to thicken it so she doesn't spit up. Now I didn't really wanna do rice cereal so idk? She said if it doesn't work to call thurs and she'll call in a Rx for Zantac. I already tried the cereal and baby seems content. I don't know??? I understand its nutritionally void, but if it'll help her spit up, why not? Should I do the Zantac or cereal????

I would do cereal before a medication.

In the long run it's your choice but I personally wouldn't do the cereal.  My oldest nephew had acid reflux and his pediatrician put him on zantac and my sister also switched his formula to the ready to feed kind and that helped a ton.
