Q.

NOVALAC AV

Please tell me if Novalac AV can be too rich for a 4 week old baby. She was on Novalac 1. The clinic put her on Novalac AV they say it fill her more and she might have refulx. She is on this milk now for 3 days and is extremely restless and seems to have cramps. She was very happy on Novalac 1 just looked as if she is still hungry afterwards.

I am not aware of a Novalac formula called AV. Do you mean Novalac AR which is used for reflux or possibly Novalac AC which is given to babies with colic? In any case it is obvious that your little baby is unhappy on the new Novalac formula. You can either put her back onto Novalac 1 and if she is hungry then try Novalac SD [sweet dreams] which is specially for hungry babies.
