My 2 month old has silent reflux / breastfed.Prevacid (lansoprazole) is somewhat helping. Can i give her a bit of rice cereal to help the reflux. ?

In brief: GE Reflux Disease

If reflux is mild, she is gaining weight, i think, you can continue breast feeding along with other measures, like, feeding in upright position, burping after each feed, upright sleep position (45 degrees), etc.
Prevacid (lansoprazole) is not the curative med for reflux, only reduces stomach acid and irritation and prevents reflux esophagitis. If these don't help, you can thicken feeding with rice cereal.
