This post makes me a little reminiscent... because my "spit-up" baby turned 5 a few months ago! We dealt with spit up with him and I only wish I would have known about Enfamil A.R. ™ then!

This is my sweet Hudson at 3 months old! Wow, how time has passed so quickly!
So since I don't currently have a "spit-up" baby... I gave my samples to my sister-in­ law, Jordan, and let her be my guinea pig for this blog post. My nephew, Hank, is ten months old and has had horrible problems with spit up for several months. Jordan was in the process of switching his formulas when these samples came in so it was perfect timing. I called her last night to get the latest update on what she thought and she told me they've been very pleased. Since they started using Enfamil A.R.two months ago she's seen decreased spit-up for sure! They made the switch completely and now Hank only drinks Enfamil A.R. ™. So that was enough to convince me!

It is common for babies to spit-up while their digestive system develops, and every baby has periods of fussiness and irritability. Though parents often associate frequent spit-up and irritability with acid reflux, about two thirds of otherwise healthy infants may have uncomplicated reflux. Parents are encouraged to talk to their pediatricians about the important differences between Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and the much more common uncomplicated reflux, called Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER). Since uncomplicated reflux (GER) may not be related to excess acid production, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends conservative management and lifestyle changes as the first line options and advise against the overuse of medications that reduces the productions of gastric (stomach) acid. Gastric acid plays an important role in the digestion of nutrients and in supporting the immune system. 

In cases of uncomplicated reflux, the AAP recommends the use of lifestyle changes, like burping more frequently and holding the baby upright after feeding, as well as using thickened feedings such as Enfamil A.R. as a first line option.
Enfamil A.R. meets the AAP recommendations on reflux management and provides the benefits of thickened feedings with more balanced nutrition and less hassle compared to adding rice cereal to formula.


Enfamil A.R. is the #1 selling brand of formula for spit-up-and is clinically proven to reduce spit up by over 50% in infants with frequent spit up, while still providing the complete nutrition your baby needs to reach key milestones. Enfamil A.R. is for babies with uncomplicated reflux (GER). You can visit Enfamil's website to learn more and as always consult your pediatrician before pursing any potential options for GER.
