Which formula should I use

I would like to ask which formula you would suggest I use. My 4 month old suffers from acid reflux and has 10mg of Losec a day. We have tried Nan with the Losec but he was still very uncomfortable then we changed to Isomil which helped quite a bit. We were then told to try Pepticate which again helped a little but not a great deal. He has now started solids and enjoys his cereal. We are now trying Infacare soya I always add Thick and Easy to his bottles as he seems better able to swallow the milk with the thickener in. He currently only has about 90ml 7 times a day and seems to cramp up while he sleeps. It also takes about an hour to get through a feed, no matter which milk we use. Which formula would you suggest, would Lactogen be an option?
Thank you.

Your baby son is not taking enough formula and you are battling. This is probably because you are adding the Thick and Easy to his formula which is causing the formula to be too thick and it also may be the cause of his discomfort. Stop using this thickener and change to Lactogen1 formula. Your baby is on Losec which will stop his stomach acid from causing any discomfort if he has reflux.
