Hi:

I heard about formula thickner but never took much interest into it until I ran into another twin mom (of 7 month old girls) at a local baby store last week.

She mentioned she knew of another twin mom at the hospital whom twin used formula thickner and it cured their reflux.

Now I am curious. Do your child use a formula thickner? Does it work well? Which brand?

Thanks,
Jessica

I exclusively breastfed both of my refluxers, so this was not an option, but there is a product called 'simply thick' that many people use, or just using rice cereal also works. Good luck!!

They had me add rice cereal to Danny's pumped milk. His we found out wasn't reflux though...it was an egg allergy...so it didn't help him.

If you used cereal, what brand did you use?
