I would recommend this product to anyone who's little one is suffering with reflux. We've tried gaviscon which didn't work so thought we'd give this a try. It smells awful but my boy loves it! It seemed a faff to prepare at first but now I'm used to it I can time it better. I'm so glad we tried this, my boy is so much more settled. I would like it if it was a tad cheaper but it definitely works!
My baby was being sick after every feed, I put him on anti reflux and after the first bottle there was no sick and he seemed a lot more settled. One thing I will say isn’t the best if preparing the bottle, because the consistency is so thick it takes and while and I do still get lumps. I would still completely recommend this milk as it has helped my baby a lot.
We were a little disappointed after trying out the Aptamil anti reflux as we’d heard some positive things, however for our little one it didn’t do much at all. The smell is absolutely awful once the bottle has been made up, so I’m not surprised she brought up most of her feed after drinking it, however was quite shocked that she did as the name of the milk would suggest it would help her to keep it down! Didn’t work for us unfortunately and we changed to another brand.
My second born suffered with reflux and the first milk didn't agree with him so was advised to put him on this. With him being sick every 5 mins after every feed I lost hope so I thought right I will just give it a shot... The rest is now history. He has never had a issue since having this milk. I have moved over to cow and gate anti reflux as it's cheaper but they all work the same and do the job.
<p>Switched from <a href="https://www.consobaby.co.uk/first-stage-milk-powder-aptamil.html">Aptamil first milk</a> when my baby was 8 weeks old as he was being sick all the time and spitting up at everyfeed. This made a huge difference! Straight away he stopped being sick or even spitting up at all. He was much happier on this milk and we still use it now at 4months.</p>
<p>Down side as it can make babies poop firmer for a while but my babies poop is now what I would class as being of a normal consistency so I’m happy we stuck it out.</p>
I brought this milk on the advice of my sons doctor and oh my word what a waste of time and money. I brought it and went to make the first bottle which was a completely ridiculous mission. My son drunk that first bottle with more issues than it was worth - it was to thick for the teats, so i had to change them and then the longer the bottle is left the thicker it becomes and it also clumps up so they can never actually finish a bottle and this doesn't matter how its made.
So after the first bottle he did seem more settled compared to others but i now think this is due to be so exhausted trying to get the milk. After a day or two on the milk he seemed like he was in constant pain, wouldn't or couldn't sleep and just cried all day and night. Now the doctor told me to keep at it for up to 4 days cause the body takes some time to get use to it, i lasted 3 cause my poor baby just couldn't cope. i have since given him hungry baby milk and he is happier than ever. i would avoid this at all costs.
I swapped my 3 month old from aptimal 1st milk to the reflux milk as he was throwing up most of the milk.
When I looked at how you have to make it I was worried that this is going to leave me with a starving baby for 7 mins.
7 minutes seems like a lifetime when they are crying, but after the first bottle I noticed a difference straight away. I stopped to burp my little man with a muslin square to hand and out come an almighty burp but no sick. This amazed me as the bottle of aptimal 1st milk he had previously shit straight back up.
My son is now a lot more content and I wish I tried this milk sooner.
Even though the milk made is very thick I find my baby getting bigger and healthier and not sick any more. When I had him on the sma for hungrier babies he kept throwing up and vomiting. Now he is a healthy and happy baby!
This milk has worked wonders for our daughter. She now sleeps through the night without spitting up in her sleep. The only downside is that it’s quite annoying to make as it tens to get really clumpy and clogs up the rest. Also getting rid of the clumps means the formula to water ratio is off.
My daughter has suffered with reflux since she was born and this works wonders I find When making the bottles it can be a bit lumpy if not shaken properly but apart from that it is amazing and my daughter will happily drink it.
able to keep down full bottle. Most of the bottle comes back up with any other milk
If you don’t make it perfectly, the powder clumps and doesn’t dissolve properly
Easy to digest
Easy to prepare
This milk is perfect for my little boy, I used to dread feeding time as he was never able to keep much down. Now he drinks 8oz no problem!
Tip: make sure you read the instructions thoroughly and follow it exactly. It’s slightly different to normal milk.
I changed my 3 week old baby onto this milk as opposed to normal formula. He was being sick with reflux after every feed and not putting much weight on because of this. Since changing he's not been sick at all and is now gaining weight nicely. Due to the thickness of the formula it can take a while to settle and agree with the digestive system.
I did notice for the first few days he had really runny poops.
However they have since settled and he's a lot happier. His toilets are now more regular and he's a much happier baby! I consulted with my doctor about the change in toilets and he said it's common for babies to either become constipated or go the opposite way! However to stick to the formula if it reduces sickness and I'm glad I did!!!
We began to use this product when lo was 6 weeks old, we noticed a difference within a few feeds. He didn't cry as much, he slept better and seemed all round happier. Although the milk is one of the most expensive out there, it is definitely worth it. The only downside to this milk is it sometimes forms little clumps of milk which then clog up the teat, it doesn't look nice so I can't imagine it tastes too good for babies, although this could be down to my rolling and shake technique. My little one began to have constipation a few days after starting this milk, Dr prescribed lactalose, we used this for a few weeks until his little tummy got used to the milk and hasn't had a problem since. I recommend this milk to anyone's baby that has reflux (at the direction of a health care professional of course)
