Silent Reflux

My little one is 2 mnths old and was diagnosed with silent reflux last week. The pead did not prescribe anything, did not mentioned anything about changing her milk.

It is really a battle to get her to finish 125ml, according to her weight she should be having 6 feeds of 125ml a day.

Yesterday she had the following:
06h00 - 100ml
09h00 - 95ml
12h00 - 65ml (it took me 2hours to get her to drink this)
15h00 - 75ml
18h00 - 55ml
21h00 - 110ml

I''m worried that she is going to lose weight, I''m really at wits end..

You do not mention what formula your baby is on nor what her weight is.She is definitely taking too little fluid per day according to the amounts you have given here. Is she on a special anti-reflux formula such as NAN AR or Novalac AR? This kind of formula is thicker than usual and many babies struggle to drink it. She may need a change of formula and special treatment for her reflux. Please speak to your paediatrician.
