Sometimes little ones bring up their feeds in small amounts after feeding and this is perfectly normal. If this is happening often, or in larger amounts, your little one may be suffering from reflux and regurgitation due to their developing digestive system.
This product should not be used in combination with antacids or other thickeners (for example) Cow & Gate Instant Carobel) and is not suitable for premature infants. Remember to consult a healthcare professional before use.
If you think your little one is ready to move on, get in touch with a healthcare professional to talk about the next step.
It is important to talk to a healthcare professional before using this product.
Cow & Gate Anti-Reflux is a thickened formula to help manage reflux and regurgitation.
It contans Carob Bean Gum, which gives the milk a thickened consistency on mixing, to help the milk to stay down in your little one's tummy.

How to prepare your baby's milk
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
1 Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.
2 Boil 1 litre of freshly run water.
Leave kettle to cool for 45 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3 Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
4 Add the correct measure of powder to the water (1 scoop to 30ml / 1fl.oz of water). Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle and roll upright between the palms of your hands - roll it strongly for 5 seconds. The time between adding the scoops and rolling the bottle should be as short as possible.
5 Shake bottle for 20 seconds and then leave to stand for 7 minutes to allow it to thicken. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
