About three weeks ago, we took my LO to the doctor because we thought he was sick and it turns out he has severe acid reflux. We were given medicine to give him twice a day but it only made him spit up more, as have every other type of medicine. He wasn't gaining weight, he was spitting so much.
He eats about four ounces every three hours (we would try more formula at one feeding, but I'm afraid his tummy can't take it!) and several of our doctors told us to give him rice cereal to help him keep food down. He gets one teaspoon every two ounces and it has been a lifesver. He's an all around happier baby and is right on track for weight. However apparently the subject of rice cereal started a tizzy on my usual board for another poster so I thought I'd come here to see if you all had any other remedies for reflux? Or should I just ease him into bigger servings of formula (but not cereal) to see how he does? We are sure to keep him upright during and after feedings and burp him halfway through the bottle.
