reflux

Hi ,Doc
Please advise, i just found out that my 5 week old son has reflux. how do you handle the constant vomoting? is there a way to ease it? travelling is a bit tricky because clothes get dirty and wet sometimes? Any advise and/or tips will be greatly appreciated.

Paediatrician

If your baby is not being breastfed and is formula fed you can try a special anti-reflux formula such as Novalac AR. If this does not help then your baby will definitely need to be seen by a paediatrician as he will need anti-reflux treatment with a medicine that reduces stomach acid.
