My LO has problems with reflux and spitting up, but my doc prescribed prevacid instead. I thought that was not good for babies until they were a little older, but I'm also not a doctor.
thedanusc:Sorry, I meant the formula that has rice in them...like enfamil ar. My lo was just prescribed Zantac today, but the doc said it will not prevent spitting up just the pain that it can occur while spitting up.
Ah, I see. Well, I have no experience with that. But I hope your LO feels better soon! Also, try propping him or her up for 10-15 minutes after feeding, and making sure they burp well. That helps with spitting up sometimes, too.
Similac Spit-up is the only thing my son would keep down. Worked great for us
That is interesting...honestly, my LO has stopped spitting as much up since he got on prevacid, but it also may be because we switched him to alimentum formula.
Our DD is also on Zantac and Enfamil A.R. formula and I'd recommend it. She used to spit up a ton and it's decreased tremendously since we switched formulas. It's still not perfect, but it's a lot better.

Our LO had the same problem and he hated the medicine the peds prescribed. I would continue to burping your LO more often. We usually burp our LO 3-4 times during feedings and afterwards just hold him and pat his back or tummy for another 10-15 minutes. Sometimes he will burp and pass gas the entire time and rest much better afterwards.

With my first DD we were on the verge of a breakdown because her reflux (despite being on meds) was so bad as an infant she was refusing to eat ANYTHING until we gave her Enfamil AR. It was a savior for us and I can't say enough good things about it. It is definitely thicker than other formulas so we noticed she took a little less in each bottle than other formulas but we were fine with that as long as she was eating something. The spitting up didn't stop with this formula but it was significantly decreased and she was a MUCH happier baby and not in so much pain. I would highly recommend it! Also - if you call Enfamil and tell them you have a baby with bad reflux and want to try this formula they will send you a free small can of it in the mail. Good luck!
