My son Levi is 13 weeks old. We figured out he has reflux @ 2 weeks. We have tried 4 different formuls (Currently Neocate) and he is taking Pepcid, Prevacid, Mylanta, Grip Water
how much does your son weigh? my lo was taking that much when he was 6 weeks old. He may not be getting enough medication for his weight. Also you might want to try Aluminum free Mylanta. I use 1mL 3 times a day, It helps coat his esophagas.
