| Topic: Cereal in Bottle
Posted: 08 August 2012 at 4:25pm
Hello, my LO 12 weeks old tomorrow has had quite the ordeal. BUT he was just diagnosed with silent reflux (GERD) and put on zantac. PED suggested putting 1TB spoon cereal per 4oz in a bottle. He was using Dr. Browns and AVENT bottles level 1 nipple prior to cereal. It gets clogged on level 2 as well and level 3 is too fast. We tried veriflow nipples they are too fast and i've gone through like 8 nipples trying to make the hole myself. I can't get him to eat anymore than he would prior to being on medication because he chokes on the flow of formula/cereal. Any suggestions?

if your baby seems to be choking, I would DEMAND a Swallow Study.
This looks at the mechanics of swallowing and also checks for aspiration when swallowing. Then, after the study IF there is a need to thicken, you are told a specific consistancy with a thickening agent- not cereal.
As I re-read you post, the choking seems to be from the cereal.
Stop the cereal. let the meds do their thing.
PLEASE RESEARCH all you can!
