Is there a difference in the brands of formula for babies (similac, parents choice) my baby has acid reflux and throws up on PC formula not any other?
Minor difference: Most milk-based infant formulas are essentially the same, although different companies will sometimes make very minor changes such as a different amount of calcium. There are some formulas which are designed to be easier to digest, and some babies with acid reflux have less spitting with these formulas. Powder vs ready-to-feed can make a difference, too. ...Read more
A baby of 6 months old, throws up like turning on a fountain why? Sometimes right after a feeding of 4 oz. And sometimes a few hours later
Your : Your baby should be seen by his/her pediatrician right away. A condition called pyloric stenosis needs to be ruled out. This is a condition where a part of the stomach is narrowed which in turn prevents food from from emptying out of the stomach into the intestines. This leads to forceful vomiting like you described. Your baby should be evaluated asap so appropriate tests and treatment can be initiated, which may include surgery. If this is not the cause then your baby maybe suffering from gerd (reflux) your doctor will determine if this is a cause as well. All the best. ...Read more
A 30 days old child, each time after feeding she sleeps and during her sleep she throw out some milk but sometimes she chokes with them. Any solution?
Pediatrician: Can check to determine if she is having reflux. That is when the ability to move formula through the stomach and on is slow or there is a tendency for it to come back up into the esophagus from the stomach. Choking can occur when the refluxed formula enters the upper airway. You should bring her to her doctor to have her checked and if this is the case her doctor will recommend actions to limit the reflux of milk. These may include thickening her formula if she is bottle fed, giving an antacid, having her in an upright position after feeding for a period of time and possibly changing her formula if it is determined that she is having an intolerance to it.
