Re: parents of kids with AR...question about moving from formula to milk

You can thicken his milk with rice cereal.. I use about 2 Tbs to 8 oz. My son has oral motor issues (as well as reflux) and has had pneumonia from aspiration several times, so we're supposed to thicken his liquids. However, keeping him on formula may not be a bad idea either.. I kept DS on it till he was 2, and now switched him to Nestle nido which is fortified milk (very similar to next step formula, but WAYYYY cheaper).
