Acid Reflux Thickened Infant Formulas



Babies who are diagnosed with acid reflux may benefit from drinking a commercially thickened formula. These formulas, such as Enfamil AR and Similac Sensitive RS, add a rice-based thickening agent. However, parents should be aware that not every baby that spits up frequently requires a thickened formula. If the baby is gaining weight well and not showing other signs of reflux, it may be best to stick with cow's milk based formula.
