In brief: Positioning

What is the age of the child? If older than 3 months and if severe GERD I would consider adding rice cereal 1 tablespoon per 4 oz of the formula to thicken the feed.
In a baby less than 2 months I would try positioning in a 45 degree position after feedings for an hr to see if it helps. Fomula switching will not improve GERD if that is the correct diagnosis.
