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.™ 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, he’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 spit up. Using thickened feedings like Enfamil A.R.™ 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).
