Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. If you are a breastfeeding mum or mum-to-be who’s planning on breastfeeding, it’s important that you eat a healthy, balanced diet. You should also be aware that combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breastmilk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered. Improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard, so if you decide to use an infant milk be sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully. Failure to follow the instructions could make your baby ill.

Anti-reflux

Reflux & regurgitation

Just as your baby’s personality is still developing, so is their digestive system. If the muscle at the top of their stomach hasn’t fully developed it may cause reflux. Using a thickened formula such as Cow and Gate anti-reflux can help your baby keep more of their milk down.

FAQs

How is Cow & Gate anti-reflux different from other milks?

Cow & Gate anti-reflux is a thicker formula made with ingredients that help to relieve reflux:
  • Carob bean gum, an ingredient that thickens the formula when it’s mixed and makes sure that formula stays thick in the stomach, helping the feed to stay down
  • Other key nutrients, just like those found in our infant milks
At Cow & Gate we’re committed to providing the best nutrition for babies and toddlers. That's why Cow & Gate anti-reflux also contains LCPs, such as omega 3 and 6, as well as nucleotides, which are also important for healthy development.

How is Cow & Gate anti-reflux different from other reflux and regurgitation milks?

Most other thickened feeds are made with starches instead of carob bean gum. These feeds are partly digested by your baby’s saliva, so they may lose their thickness before reaching your baby’s tummy. Thickened feeds with carob bean gum are less affected by your baby’s saliva and therefore stay thicker in your baby’s tummy.

Cow & Gate anti-reflux contains important nutrients, such as LCPs and nucelotides, to make sure your baby gets the nutrients they need for healthy growth. It is important that you don’t combine different reflux and regurgitation remedies.


What kind of teat should I use?

Because Cow & Gate anti-reflux is thicker than other milks, it’s recommended that you use a single hole fast-flow teat.


When can I expect the symptoms to improve?

Every baby is different – you may notice that their symptoms start to improve after a few days, but for some babies it may take longer. If your baby's symptoms don't improve after 2 weeks, or if you have any other concerns, then it's best to get advice from your health visitor or GP.


Will I notice any changes in my baby?

The special ingredients in Cow & Gate anti-reflux mean the consistency of your baby's stools may change. However there’s no need to worry as this is perfectly normal!

Instant Carobel may be added directly to an infant’s milk or drink (water/juice), or given by spoon as a thick gel just prior to drinking, or eating a very wet meal.

*Can also be used with cooled, freshly boiled water.

  • Prepare the infant milk to the manufacturer’s guidelines
  • Add Instant Carobel as indicated in the feeding guide above
  • Shake well (for 30-60 seconds)
  • Leave for 3-4 minutes to thicken
  • Shake again and feed immediately
  • Do not heat in a microwave – hot spots may occur and cause scalding

As a spoonfeed or paste

  • This method is appropriate for breastfed infants and may be the preferred method for bottlefed infants
  • It is also suitable for first weaning foods that have too liquid a consistency and for older children and adults
  • Add Instant Carobel as indicated in the feeding guide above
  • Stir well and leave for 3-4 minutes to thicken
  • Stir again and feed immediately, by spoon, prior to and during the feed or meal
Instant Carobel will continue to thicken up to 4-15 minutes after mixing. Therefore, it is advisable to add Instant Carobel one scoop at a time, stir well and allow to thicken, and then add more Instant Carobel until the desired consistency is achieved.

1 level scoop size = 1.7g. Always use the scoop provided.
