my daughter is 5 months old, she has 5 bottles a day, the first 3 breast milk, and the last 2 formula.
last month she started pulling away arching her back, and screaming, during her feeds. She would be fine within a few minutes of us giving up on the half finished bottle.
She has been having infant Gaviscon with her feeds for the last 3 weeks, and that was working, but now she has started again. It seems to be worse for the afternoon and evening feeds.
If her tummy is completely empty when she gets her bottle (after 3 1/2 - 4 hours) she doesn't usually have a problem, but sometimes she gets hungry before then!
I was wondering what other options there are for babies with reflux when gaviscon doesn't work.
I'm also not sure if it could be a milk allergy? She seems to react the same way to whether it's breast milk or formula.
Does giving solids usually help with reflux?
