I've used a partially hydrolised formula with both of mine. They both had silent reflux while being breast fed. When I switched to a normal formula with the eldest she vomited most of every feed. After a couple of tins I switched to a hydrolised formula, and it was an immediate change with no more being sick - I could also take her off the reflux medication she had been on. For my second baby, when I switched to formula from breast feeding I went straight to a hydrolised formula, and again her reflux seemed to improve drastically. In a hydrolised formula the milk protein has been broken down, which makes it easier for the baby to digest. They are available in supermarkets, and places like Big W and KMart. The brand I was using has just gone of the market - and I havn't found the replacement one available yet, but they are available in a number of brands - a HA in the name indicates that it is hydrolised. HA formulas are also less likely to cause an allergy to milk if there is that tendancy in the family.
