My son had reflux and we didn't know for about 5 weeks. I tried colic water, colic tablets, gas drops, chamomile tea, even stopped eating pretty much everything since I thought my baby wasn't doing well with whatever I was eating (since I'm breast feeding). It was a hellish 5 weeks unil I finally got him diagnosed with reflux and switched over from the emfamil infant formula to nutramigen. Ever since the combination of the two things together, he has been so much better. He doesn't cry for no reason now. I feel like this has been a lifesaver. Moms, if your baby cries all day, ask your pediatrician if he may have reflux. I think a lot of times, parents think its just colic and it could be but for my son, it was reflux. This formula is great. Now I don't have to try all the other things and hav my sanity back. Feel this is gentler on his stomach so he has less gas.
Nutramigen is a nutritional complete hypoallergenic formula specially designed for infants with cow's milk protein allergy and soya allergy (and symptoms rented to these allergies, such as eczema. Colic allergic colitis or other gastrointestinal symptoms) and those with lactose intolerance. The protein is extensively hydrolysed (broken down) and as such hypoallergenic. The choice of glucose syrup as the carbohydrate source makes the product easy to digest. Nutramigen 1 is lactose free. Nutramigen 1 provides all nutrients necessary for healthy growth and development of your baby. Due to its special formulation nutramigen 1 does not smell and taste like routine infant formula. Babies fed with this formula may produce frequent loose stools of a greenish colour. Infants older than 6 months can continue with nutramigen 2. As your infant grows consult your healthcare professional regarding the addition of suitable foods to your infant's diet. Cup feeding should be encouraged from 6 months of age and bottle feeding discouraged after 12 months. Only baby milks and cooled boiled water should be given from a bottle.
