Q.

reflux

my 5 month is currently on losec. she is also on solid foods as per advised by our pead, because she wont take formula( we have tried every brand on the market). she only manages to drink 3-4 150ml bottles a day and that is mostly given when she is sleeping.
she has no problem taking water though. we recently found out that she has a post nasal drip, and that is supposedly why her no 2 is full of musous and why she also spits up a lot. for the last few days it seems that my child has become bulimic( i use the term lightly) . she will eat two or three mouth fulls then all the sudden she makes herself sick. the does this when one also just brings the bottle close to her face. should i have a scan done to see if there is a bigger problem that we cant externally see? please help

Paediatrician

She appears to have a very blocked nose and this is often the main cause of these complaints. Your daughter needs to see a paediatician with an interest in paediatric allergy. There are experts in all the main centres.
