Tyler had issues with spitting up since birth. We had to change his formula several times before we found one that helped his GER. GER is an uncomplicated form of digestive problems (spit up, ick), unlike GERD. Until he was identified with frequent spit up issues, I wasn’t familiar with GER. In fact, in the beginning, I thought it was the same thing as GERD, which I was familiar with because a child I babysat was diagnosed with GERD. I knew it was common for kids to spit up but he spit up more than I thought was normal (more than 5 times daily) so I met with our pediatrician to discuss options. Our pediatrician gave me some great advice on how to help reduce GER, which included burping more frequently than normal and holding him upright after feeding. As a medical professional myself, I always recommend checking with your pediatrician before making any changes. These suggestions helped but I think the most valuable information that would have benefited him would have been to put him on Enfamil A.R.ā„¢ If you’ve never tried Enfamil A.R. then you probably aren’t aware of its benefits so keep reading for more information.

Enfamil A.R. is thicker than the normal formula for babies to get and keep the much needed nutrients inside their little bodies to help them grow. I washed more bibs during Tyler’s childhood than I have anything else to date. He would spit-up, I’d change his bib. I’d change his bib, heā€™d spit up. I’m sure you get the message. Spit up is not only a messy & smelly problem, but spitting up in excess can be really bad on an infant who needs the complete nutrition that formula is designed to provide. Keep in mind that it is common for babies to spit-up while their digestive system develops, and every baby has periods of fussiness and irritability, but not every baby spits up more than 5 times daily. I didn’t know about Enfamil A.R. back then (13 years ago) but I’m sure it would have helped Tyler’s GER as it’s helping a friend of mine’s infant baby girl. As soon as she started having problems with spitting up, I told her about Enfamil A.R. and after consulting with her pediatrician, he gave her the go ahead to change formulas. She had originally planned to breast feed but knowing she would be going back to work right away, she opted to formula feed her little bundle of joy instead. Both mama and baby are doing well and I feel great knowing I helped her out of the messy situation that was happening, but, more importantly, by her taking the well meant advice, her baby is getting complete nutrition from the formula.

When you visit my links to read more about Enfamil A.R. you’re going to discover some important information. Such as… Enfamil A.R. is clinically proven* to reduce spit-up by over 50% in infants with frequent spit up! Plus, Enfamil A.R. is the #1selling brand of formula for spitĀ­ up. Using thickened feedings like Enfamil A.R.ā„¢ as a first line management option for infants with uncomplicated reflux instead of the overuse of medications that reduce the production of gastric (stomach) acid, is recommended by the AAP, along with lifestyle changes as mentioned above (burping more frequently and keeping baby upright after feeding).

  1. There are so many options out there for babies with issues. We breastfed exclusively, so I didn’t get to try any of the formulas, but it is so nice to know that there is one for each condition! One less thing to worry about!

  2. I do not have children but I do sit every now and then for family or friends so it’s helpful to read about this, I never really thought about infants suffering from acid reflux, must be so hard on them as they can’t really express what they are feeling.

  3. I’m so glad they have something like this to help parents and babies out when it comes to spit-up. Thanks for sharing this

  4. When my so was three weeks old he was going through a huge growth spurt and was drinking close to seventy oz per day. On top of that he was spitting about a third of it up and was STILL hungry. Enfamil AR had helped us so much in that he doesn’t spit up nearly as much anymore and since it thickens in his stomach he is not so savagely hungry after 45 minutes anymore.

  5. I am super thankful that I was able to breastfeed all three of my kids. However, as a mom I get that some don’t or can’t breastfeed for whatever reason. I am also glad that there is formula to help with issue like Gerd.

  6. My niece;s little one was on this Enfamil A. R. when he was on formula. I have never heard of GER but I have GERD. This is indeed awesome information to the new moms as well as old new moms. Thanks for sharing the awesome information.

  7. Enfamil is a great product, both kids consumed Enfamil products ( milk + vitamin). So glad that they bring more awesome products. Hope this product will help kids with digestive problems.

  8. This is great to have a solution to this problem. I imagine it would be scary for the parents dealing with these issues and much better for baby to have this available.

  9. I am so glad they make a formula for babies with reflux problems. I know I have friends with twins that have this problem and the formula really helps.

  10. I didn’t realize there was a difference with GERD and GER. Good to know! I think my kids all had varying degrees of it, but I never realized they should see a doctor about it. They each grew well and didn’t suffer one bit because of it, but oh my – the laundry! Yikes!

  11. I am thankful to say my kiddo never had this, but a friend of mine has a little one that was so bad they had him sleep in his car seat at night because it would keep him sitting up.

  12. I think it’s quite normal for kids to spit up. It’s great that the Enfamil A.R. is clinically proven and some doctors even recommend it as a solution for infants. This is for parents to be also rest assured that their babies are getting the right nutrition.

  13. It is so hard when babies have tummy issues. I love that Enfamil has helped to come out with a product that helps the babies out. I am going to have to tell my friend about this formula!

  14. This is great for all the little ones out there who suffer with spit up issues. It’s so scary and hard to deal with when they’re so tiny! I love that this is designed for helping with that issue so that all babies can get proper nutrition and be comfortable and happy!

  15. My children thankfully did not not have GER, but I have a friend who’s child did. I know it was pretty rough on both mom and baby. I’m glad that they are getting more and more options available to help every baby get fed in a way that meets their needs best.
