In brief: Management of sx
Other suggestions include feeding at an angle and thickening her feedings with rice cereal.
There are also medications available to treat her reflux if switching formula and these measures do not improve her symptoms.

In brief: Might try nutramogen
Nutramogen is similar to alimentum but may work.
There are very expensive Amino Acid formulas that would be a last resort.

In brief: See below
Alimentum, neocate and pregestimil are known as elemental formulas-indicated for milk protein allergies.
Other than breast, they are the mainstream choices. They are expensive and taste is usually hands down terrible. Try to pump and save your breast milk. If in short supply, you may mix the formula w/breast milk to allow gradual adaptation to the formula.
