I'm going to be the voice of dissension here, but I don't mean it to be taken negatively. I am really curious why your doc suggested you switch to bottle feeding. I understand the idea of not over-filling her stomach to avoid more reflux. My concern on bottle feeding is that it is much easier to eat faster and over eat because there is no change in flow like with breastfeeding. And then wouldn't that exacerbate the reflux?
I do relate to the stress of trying to find something that works with reflux. Abri had it and never would take a bottle even if she was being babysat, so limiting milk by bottle feeding would never have been a solution to try for us. Our option was limiting nursing sessions to just one breast in addition to meds.
