Can I get some advice on acid reflux?

Hello, my daughter has really bad acid reflux and just pukes everytime I feed her. What is the best bottle to try to help with this? I have her on Dr.Brown nipples right now

Sometimes the nipple doesn’t help sometimes they need Zantac I know my daughter needed Zantac

Is she not on reflux medicine?

Tommee tippee sensitive. But more importantly hold her upright while feeding (Like a little bird) and then keep her upright after for a long time - 30 minutes or more if needed. It made all the difference with my little.

Good luck!!!

Sit her upright while feeding and for about 30 minutes to an hour after feedings. It will help. Also you can ask doctor about reflux medicine

My second was reflux. Switched to enfamil AR formula complete turn around first bottle.
I use evenflo bottles, they are angled. Held upright during feeding and sat up for 30 mins after. Propped sleep if possible.
Worked for us.

Have her sit up a bit more when feeding her, wait and long as possible after feeding her before laying her down… have you consulted with her dr yet, sometimes they can give you medicine to help also… but luckily they can grow out of it

Similac sensitive formula, zantac, and nuk natural bottles :slight_smile: it’s worked for us. With my oldest it was nutramigen, zantac, and playtex bottles with the wide nipples and the curved neck.

My daughter projectile vomited every time I fed her. Took her to doctor they prescribed her medicine. She ended up needing to be on soy formula. It wasn’t acid reflux.

Try lactose milk my son and daughter could not drink regular milk it would come right back out all over me.

If she is puking and it’s not spit up everytime she feeds, she needs to be seen immediately. That isn’t normal even for reflex. She needs meds and a  evaluation to rule Pyloric stenosis

How old is she? Try lifting her head a little higher so she doesn’t throw it up let the milk settle then burp her (if she needs burping) also you can get different milk/formula for acid reflux or if you’ve tried everything maybe speak to your health visitor/midwife/GP they may be able to give you something to help x

Lactose milk fixed the problem for me

Enfamil AR formula. Wouldn’t say much else is gunna make a difference.

It can be the nipple flow
It can be the formula you’re using
It can be just the baby has bad reflux.

For me, it was neither of the above. My son had BAD reflux. With the doctors ok I was told to put just a little baby cereal into the bottle, worked a charm. I’m not saying do this, get the doctors okay but see what is causing the reflux and take it from there.

I had to change my son’s formula, sit him up for at least 30 minutes after a bottle, and elevate one end of his crib mattress.

I used dr browns bottles and enfamil ar

It’s the formula. All my kids did until they were off that nasty stuff.

Need to have the doctor check her. Could be more than acid reflux!! Probably needs a formula change.

Try premixed formula, until baby is a little older. I felt like it was better mixed. And I loved the playtex ventaire bottles.
