This should come with a warning!!
My baby regurgitates a lot after his feeds so thought this would help him keep it down. Followed the recommended dose and after awhile my baby cried like I’ve never heard him before. Inconsolable. He was in so much pain. This gave my baby what I can only assume would be a tummy ache/cramps. He was also constipated after this- going bright red in the face trying to push.
After coming on here to read others reviews, I saw Nutrica’s replies saying to slowly introduce the amount so baby gets used to it. I don’t know why this isn’t on the packaging ...
Not worth it.
We bought this to help with my son's bad reflux, it worked for about a week then started causing more issues. We only used 1/3 of a scoop per 100ml, just to ease it into his diet, but started causing bad tummy gas and diarrhea. He was screaming in pain from his tummy troubles. As soon as we stopped the thickener, he was back to normal the next day. I'd rather reflux than a baby in pain. The ingredients just don't suit an infant diet.
