Re: When to start baby food
My dd also has a bad reflux problem and is on medication. Some days are better than others, but at 6 months she still spits up and covers herself and sometimes me too. I carry burp clothes on me whenever I hold her. They have to be near at all time... anyway... all that to say... the doctor told me to keep rice ceral out the bottle, especially since I am bf. But hey, if it's working for you and the dr. said it's ok, I'm not going to say anything.
As for baby food, I'd hold off because of allergies.
My dd has recently started baby food and honestly, it hasn't made a difference with the reflux at all.
At her last appt. (last week) the dr. said to continue the medicine so she's not in pain when the acid comes back up, but to expect the spit up to continue until she's about a year old.
I think it's something you'll have to live with for a little while. I don't recommend starting baby food that early. I doubt it will help with the reflux.
