Reflux is common in babies, as the muscles in their oesophagus have not fully developed. It will pass as they get older. You can try other things before switching baby formula, such as giving your baby smaller feeds more often, making sure your baby burps, and holding your baby upright both during and after feeding. We recommend reading the following article from the NHS - here.

Here's what we know on reflux (for all babies, not just breastfed babies):

  • Spitting up usually occurs right after a baby eats, but it may also occur 1-2 hours after a feeding.
  • Half of all 0–3-month-old babies spit up at least once per day.
  • Spitting up usually peaks at 2-4 months.
  • Many babies outgrow spitting up by 7-8 months.
  • Most babies have stopped spitting up by 12 months.

Kendamil doesn't have an anti-reflux formula. The reason why is that our team believes that it's not necessary to produce one when our milks are formulated with the primary ingredient of whole milk. Instead of whole milk, other brands fatten their baby milk with vegetable oil fats, like palm oil, which evidence suggests can be more difficult on digestion.

By starting with high quality ingredients, we don't expect ever to have to produce an anti-reflux formula.

We always advise parents to consult with their child's GP or healthcare professional before switching baby formula or introducing formula for the first time, particularly if their baby has feeding issues. If you decide to switch, it may take a little while for your baby to adjust entirely to new baby formula. We generally recommend a transition period of 7 - 14 days, during which you can gradually introduce the new formula to baby.
