"That's awful that they gave you the wrong milk! I really hope things improve for you soon. It's so awful having a reflux baby and feeling so helpless. Good luck xx"

"Hi Kittu, we ended up taking him to A&E last night. When looking the Alfamino milk which he was given first of all has no cows milk in but the Althera which the doctor then prescribed does have milk in so can only assume that this is what's…"

Kitty replied to Kerry's discussion Intolerance/CMPA? Omoperazole & ranatidine
"Oh Kerry, I feel your pain. I wish I could help more! From what I can tell, Althera seems to be not totally hydrolysed and I think Alfamino is, Meaning the milk protein is not totally broken down, so perhaps why your LO is reacting to it. xx"

Back to square 1 with omeprazole, please help

Hi everyone, my son has been on omeprazole suspension for 15 days. The first 11 were brill and he was a different baby. The last few days have been hell. Screaming and refusing to go on his back. Called the pharmacist who swear blind that it lasts for 30 days. Anyone else had this as I really think that the effect wears off after a few days. Any thoughts?

Kitty replied to Kerry's discussion Intolerance/CMPA? Omoperazole & ranatidine
"Hi Kerry Alfamino is a horrible formula! We had real problems on it.  They moved my LO from Nutramagen (partially hydrolised formula) to Alfamino (fully hydrolosed, like Neocate but much newer and I think cheaper for the NHS), although it just…"
