Formula change?
Good morning, my grandchild who is 4 months old is on an anti reflux formula, but brings up small amounts the entire day. It has been suggested that he would do better on soya milk together with an antacid. What is your opinion of soya milk plse and does it have any long term effects. If you are in favour of the change to soya could you please suggest which one to use.
Thank you very much

The problem here is not the formula, but that of ongoing reflux. Your grandchild needs treatment for this reflux as it is very persistent and has not responded to an anti-reflux formula. There is very effective treatment for reflux in young babies. Please ask his paediatrician to see him and to put him on the best treatment.
