Q.

RE: Formula and weight problem

Thanks Dr for your response, what I didn''t mention is that my daughter was born at 34weeks weighing 2.64kg. Another thing is that she has reflux and I was giving her Baba Suur 2.5ml now it doesn''t seem to help and I gave her 1ml gaviscon diluted in 3ml of water. This also now doesn''t seem to work, what can give I her for reflux? Can reflux have an effect on her not gaining weight? I thought it would be better when she starts solids but its not getting better.

You are welcome.Reflux can certainly affect your baby's weight gain, also the fact that she was born prematurely. Your baby needs to be on more effective anti-reflux medicines now. Please take her to see your paediatrician.
