    My little girl (11wks) has been put on infant gaviscon as its supposed to help thicken the forumla - only it doesnt seem to make a difference to the consistency at all!
    She only drinks 4oz absolute max and the instructions say 1 dose in no less than 115ml which is just under 4oz. She is on Nutramigen which is a prescription milk.

    What has gaviscon done to your babies milk - has it thickened it alot or not?
