The formulas that are usually recommend for babies with reflux are the AR (anti-reflux) formulas. Your baby was not able to tolerate one of these formulas, possibly because he cannot digest or tolerate the thickening substance which is added to this kind of formula. Try him on a low allergy formula which is not too expensive such as NAN HA 1. If he does not improve he will need to be on a medicine to lower the acid in his stomach such as Nexiam. You need a prescription for this so will need to take your baby to your nearest state hospital with a paediatrics out-patients department.
