Q.

for moms with reflux babies

my little girl of 4 months as been diagnosied with reflux and was put on losec and a diet of solid foods to account for the fact that she would not take any type of formula. we managed to get at least 4 botlles of 150ml of milk a day in , while she was asleep.
well one can imagine how frustrating and difficult these last 3 months have been. added her weight gain was slow.
after seen 2 pded and a homeopath, our clinic sister said try novelac ar. i had wanted to buy the product for a while but i did not know the brand. i bought it on Saturday past and would you believe that she now drinks the milk while awake but she also drinks about 170ml a time. her solid food intake is also better, no wanting water between mouthfulls.
the best part is too me as well that for the first time she has wet nappies so i dont have to worry aout her getting dehydrated.
i am not sure how nutritional this formula is, i guess the pead if you mind can you please answer that one for me. but this email is to all us moms who spend a fortune on bibs

We are all very keen on Novalac AR. It is sometimes difficult to find supplies of this formula, but it is certainly recommended for infants with reflux.
