Hi, I'm looking for some advice from any mums who have had to deal with reflux as to whether it may be best to switch to formula as doc had advised. My DS is 2 months old and was diagnosed with reflux a few weeks ago. I was given quite a lot of advice from doctors about feeding him every 3 hours or so (i was overfeeding him thinking he was hungry after each vomiting session), keeping him elevated, holding him upright after feeds for 30 minutes etc. I was also prescribed Domperidone for him which is supposed to help the milk travel through his system faster. I have been trying these suggestions and he has improved. He has also been consistently putting on weight which makes me less concerned as he seems to be thriving apart from the discomfort every now and again from the reflux. I had to stop giving him the medication quite early on as it made it worse; he would be in so much more discomfort and taking milk out more than without the medication. At a follow up appointment today, the doc suggested that when he turns 3 months, I should start giving him formula as it's heavier and will help. However, after thinking about it and reading up, it seems that formula may not actually help - from what I have read, as it is thicker, it will stay in his tummy so less spit-up but will get digested slower than breastmilk. I know reflux is one of those things you just have to wait out until it resolves itself. The real issue is that I love breastfeeding. I have absolutely nothing against parents who formula feed and respect their choice but I truly do enjoy it and don't really want to stop. With my DD I bf until she was 16 months and feel she really benefitted from it. I also go back to work at 3 months (working abroad) and although it would be convenient to give him formula, I have no problems expressing as I did with my DD (back at work at 5 months). I guess the question I have is do the benefits of formula feeding outweigh the benefits of breastfeeding? Are there any mums out there who have been in this situation? Please could you share your thoughts? Thank you!
