Hi guys, my LO is 6 weeks and he started getting reflux about 2 weeks ago so I went to my GP and she prescribed baby gaviscon to be added to his feeds he is on aptimil hungry milk. He is 10lbs 4oz so the instructions say 2 sachets per feed, which effectively only covers half the feeds he has during the day, when he doesn't have it it's really noticeable. Went back to GP for 6 week check, told her my dilemma she said to try reflux milk with the gaviscon. Went to boots and the aptimil reflux milk was loads more expensive than normal so I went for the sma reflux milk as it was the cheapest. A day and half in and my son is really constipated and the teats were getting blocked as the milk was so thick. so I read over both the milk and gaviscon instructions again and they both say other thickening agents shouldn't be used when using one or the other product.
Why would the GP and health visitor advise this method if it's clearly wrong???
I am now trying the milk without the gaviscon added to see how this works. Any advice or has anyone experienced this or similar??? Don't like seeing my son in do much pain Xxx
