This is a question for your pediatrician who will assess the growth of your baby.

So did my first two. I give them flax seed oil and it completely eliminates the reflux. I breastfed so I don't know about formulas. But you should seek the advice of your pediatrician before the baby is born.

I highly recommend breast feeding. No guarantee that your baby won't have reflux even if breast fed, but it is better for both you and the baby if you breast feed

I suffer from depression and am bipolar so breast feeding is out of the question. I'd rather give the baby formula than kill myself. Thank you for the advice though. I'll ask my pediatrician.
