OK, so my daughter, almost 3 months old, is on powder alimentum. My doctor had me add rice cereal to thicken it due to acid reflux. Well the rice cereal won’t go through the slow flow nipple and the medium flow is still too much for her? I tried cutting hole in the nipples but its always to small or too big?? Any suggestions?
thickening is fairly old-fashioned & can stress out an already sensitive and immature digestive system
try not thickening…the alimentum is for tummy problems, like you said. adding cereal *adds* to tummy problems.
if you find you absolutely MUST thicken, find a product like Gelmix or thick it or simply thick.
the search button located on the upper right-hand corner of the page will help you
use keywords and choose 6 months and OLDER from the drop-down menu.
I don’t mean to sound bossy and a know-it-all. it’s just that i’ve been on this board TEN years now (!) and I do know my stuff…however, there are those who swear by thickening. YOU are the mama! research and make your own educated decisions 🙂
