Hi princeza, is your baby formula fed and spitting up a lot or have you got a diagnosis of reflux from your Dr?

My daughters reflux was terrible to a point where she would asperate and not be able to breath! A few times I had to call the Ambo when her angelcare monitor went off. What helped for us was losec and seeing a pead who worked out her reflux was due to cows milk protein allergy. I'd maybe try see someone who has knowledge of reflux in infants.
The pead also recomended my daughter sleep on her side with the head raised, I think you 100% need to see someone who has a knowledge of reflux as I found the gp's i seen really had no idea, not saying they wernt good doc just that they didnt have experience. I wouldn't try anything till you get advice.

My daughter was very spewy but not officially diagnosed with reflux.

I tried nearly every formula available, including the Karicare anti-reflux one.  It worked the best at stopping the spewing but also caused her to be constipated.  She is now 8 months and has pretty much grown out of her spewy phase.

It's really annoying and I hear you if you are frustrated and upset.  If you search my posts I'm pretty sure there is one here about having to wash bibs and spit rags every day.

Hope things get better for you soon.

I added karmic are thickener to my normal formula. That way I could adjust it to the amount required by my child.
