Did you thinken the Neocate?
DD (6 weeks old) has been spitting up more than ever before (she has silent reflux). She has never really spit up before. Now it is like an ounce with the neocate. She does it every few times. Should I thicken it?

Andrea: Mom to 3 crazy girls!
Jackie (3/01)
Payton (9/03)
Abby (4/06) Prevacid 7.5mg (evening), MSPI, goats milk (currently trying to wean off Prevacid)
They can spit up more with Neocate b/c it is really thin. But we never thickened it. Once she was on it for a few months the spitting up went away.

Adriane Reese 05/16/07; seemingly healthy when born; diagnosed with MSPI, severe Reflux, Apnea, Ashtma, Epilepsy, and severe food allergies(rice, corn, milk, soy, eggs, oats, wheat, beef, chicken, squash, pumpkin, avocado, etc.);On apnea monitor, seems to be tolerating RCF w/carbohydrate mixed in; on Zyrtec, Xopenex, Prevacid
A spit up more but she was also taking in more. We couldn't thicken due to an allergy to rice and corn. We saw an improvement in a month or so.

baby quinn's mommy
Mom to a 3 year old baby girl with severe reflux: g-tube, nissen fundoplication. dx: RAD, failure to thrive, DGE, epilepsy, sleep apnea, paraesohphogeal hernia, high lactic acid there's more "unknown disease"... Hospitalized 12 times, PT graduate! ST graduate! OT graduate! Current Meds: singulair, zopeonex, pulmicort, reglan, Keppra, Trileptal, vitamin B6, Veramyst. Current weight: 34 lb. Current height: 39". g-tube dependent, oxygen 1-2LpM all day and night PIC: Ms. Quinn
When quinn was on it (wasn't for long because she didn't like it and refused to eat it) we had to thicken it because of her risk for aspiration. We just did the rice cereal thing. Nothing worked, but we did thicken.

Renee, mother to Nicholas, born 4/18/08 with silent reflux, moderate laryngomalacia, Sandifer's Syndrome& suspected MSPI. On Neocate, Simply Thick and Prevacid. Also mother to Nathan, born 12/06/06, who had mild reflux the first few months.
We do thicken the Neocate with Simply Thick. It has really helped Nicholas. Less spit up and less choking going down.
Check with your
doctor first!
