    Oh no.
    Oh love I hope it’s only mild. My neighbours baby had covid when she was almost 2 months old but she wasn’t to bad, so I pray your little one will be the same.

    Thanks so much lovely . Thankfully he seems to be holding his own . We did get him checked over by the GP on his advice . Poor baby has had it rough the last few weeks .

    He started reacting to the aptimal Pepti 1 so he’s on a different formula now but I think he’s reacting to this one too . His reflux is awful but we can now give him 2 sachets of Gaviscon since he’s over 10lb . We have been referred to our local hospital so hopefully they can help . I hope the tide turns for him soon he’s such a sweet boy

    are you in the UK love? My son had terrible reflux and we put him on cow and gate anti reflux formula. It’s thicker than ordinary formula and it has been a God send.

    u just have to make sure to use medium flow tests because it’s thick. But worked a treat for my little man. He’s still on it now at 10 months old. I read they normally grow out of reflux around 9 months but sometimes 12 months. I wanna try him on a normal follow on formula but I’m scared his reflux will come back again.

    Yes I am in the U.K. ! It’s been confirmed he has a cows milk allergy so off the shelf formula is not an option . I’m just going to wait and see what the hospital say thankfully he has an appointment next week .
    I’m glad your little ones reflux has improved and totally understand your reluctance to change anything . It’s a nightmare , fingers crossed your little one is Oo now ! Thanks for all your advice xx

    I am absolutely furious , literally shaking with anger!!

    The formula I collected from the chemist on Tuesday and have been feeding DS it since Wednesday night has been recalled as a “precautionary” measure due to the possible presence of Salmonella and Cronobacter sakazakii .

    Its on the Food Standards Agency website and has been since February 2022 !!
    How the hell does a chemist not know this especially baby food !

    It’s not my usual chemist either , someone is seriously going to feel my anger first thing Monday morning !

    So fed up now it’s literally one thing after another at the minute

    Gayle’s 1week appointment was 2 days ago. She is fainting weight well and we go back for another check up in a couple of weeks.

    I am even more furious now after doing some research last night that 9 Babies have died due to a direct link to the formula !!!

    I am asking for him to be switched to another brand of formula . I can’t trust that brand at all now .
    I can’t believe the pharmacy dispensed this formula and the serious consequences it could have had !!

    That is horrible!! I'm sorry that all this is going on, do you have anything else to give your baby or do have to continue to use this formula until you can get ahold of someone?

    We have switched back to the Aptimal Pepti 1 that’s our only option even though he’s not settled on it ! It’s so frustrating ! I’ve had just about enough now and asking for Neocate when I go the GP tomorrow . How they didn’t even know it’s been recalled I don’t know either !! All my baby wants is his milk !

    Been to the chemist this morning and they had been informed back in March of the recall !! That’s serious negligence.

    I’ve had two major arguments with the pharmacy and the GP ! I’ve made an official complaint to NHS England , the Pharmacy Regulators , the pharmacy itself and my GP . I am still furious now !

    Oh I felt I had too . I’m not usually the type but when it comes to my babies grrr !
    I hope it’s not happened to anyone else either !

    Had such a awful week last week . He started on Nutramigen which made him 110% worse to the point we were back at the GP who refused to prescribe a completely diary free formula . It wasn’t my usual GP either . Kept saying it was just reflux … reflux causing a rash and upset stomach plus various other issues. Then tried to imply I was over feeding him when he’s fed on demand! I was furious so stood my ground and after a stern conversation he eventually and reluctantly prescribed 1 tub of Neocate . I wasn’t coming away without that formula . It shouldn’t have to be so hard .

    I’m glad I did because he’s so much happier now , his reflux , stomach and there’s no more rash ! We have the hospital tomorrow and I am hoping they confirm it’s CMPA so I won’t have any further issues with my GP.

    How is everyone else and the little babies doing ??!!

    We are good thank you. Glad you finally got somewhere with the formula and bubs is feeling better! What a nightmare.
    It's boiling hot here at the moment, 29° currently, so Cian is spending his time in nappies trying to keep cool

    Hospital appointment went really well !

    The specialist said he’s 110% got a milk allergy and she cannot believe how much messing around I’ve had off the GP . He’s being kept on the Neocate and she’s sent a urgent fax to my GP advising them .

    She was so reassuring and said I shouldn’t have any more issues with the GP but if I do to contact her .

    It’s such a relief ! Onwards and upwards !
