Reflux

Dear DOC,

My baby gal is 2months and has a bad reflux she throws up most of her feed and she is on Novalac AR and taking Losecs..is there anything else i could do to help her as this is frustrating worrying everytime after her feed....i try to keep her upright for longer after her feeds bt this doesn' t seem to help...Someone suggested i give her Reuteri drops...am not sure abt that i need u' r opinion..

Reuteri drops will not help for such severe reflux. Your baby needs to be seen again by your paediatrician. She will need an additional medicine to stop her severe reflux.
