Hi there

My little one had quite bad reflux when a baby and also was failing to put on weight - looked like an underfed insect!

ANyhow he was put on ranitidine - which neautralises the acid in the stomach
Gaviscon in his bottles of High Energy Milk - there is a Gaviscon suitable for babies
He also had domperidone which helps stop sickness..

The combination worked a treat and he grew in to a tubby toddler!
