I’m currently using Novalac reflux for my almost 4 month old. She is currently on a reflux medication also. My Dr wants her to slowly ween off the reflux formula but there doesn’t seem to be a normal every day formula in this range. Any suggestions to what other brand formula is the most similar to the Novalac range that I can use that won’t cause too much upset on my baby’s tummy? We are staring with using a different formula for two of her feeds during the day and going from there.

Hi try novalac HA.. It's thick and I'm using it for my daughter of 4 months. She has reflux and is lactose intolerance. She is fed every 4 hours. She had to be admitted because of her spitting up after every feed and in between. It has slowed down alot than before. She don't have a problem with constipation at all.

Hi, my 2month old baby has mild reflux and cramping. She was on Similac total comfort and nexium.
Went for a checkup and the pediatrician advised to switch to Novalac AR, however now my baby is extremely sleepy, she even falls asleep while feeding so out of 150ml she only drinks like 90ml. Seems like she's vomiting /spitting up more then previous.
She is passing clay like stools and is in pain when trying to pass any stool and has way more cramps.

Also I'm using Tommy tippee close to nature bottles and the formula builds up in the teat every time I shake to mix up the formula. I'M not mixing the formula in hot boiled water.

Please help!!
Should I continue with Novalac AR or switch back to Similac total comfort??

Please note this is day 2 of using Novalac AR.

Thanks in advance!

I also have a 2 month old baby. I also had formula build up in the teat. So we boil and cool water to desired temp first. We then add 2 scoops and shake and then 2 scoops and shake again.
It generally won’t thicken then. My baby also was drinking 90 then slowly after a week or 2 increased to 120.
The stool is much thicker so we give baby Bonnisan - 1 mil only 3 times a day and it helps a lot and he is more regular now.
I stopped the nexium, my baby was getting very sick with it and vomiting and spitting up more.

Hi Charleen, I hope you’re well.
My baby has been using this formula since he was 4 months old, after having to try the other brands and didn’t make any difference, with Navalac is so good, he doesn’t vomit and never had constipation, so yes you may have to.
Or if she’s doing her poos everyday and doesn’t hurt her maybe wait for a week, and see how she goes. I hope she’s all well soon, Good luck.

Hi Dikeledi
I hope you’re well, since using this formula for my baby never have any issues, he used to drink the other brands, his vomiting never stopped plus he had diarrhoea, so I do highly recommend this formula, I hope this would be helpful for you and your baby, all the best.
