thanku for your query,
well i understand your concern,your baby is having regurgitation after every feed , that is normal in some babies . Her growth seems very normal ,continue with farex 1 for next few months till baby is four to six mths old .
regurgitation can be because of overfeeding,air swallowing during feeding,cough and crying during feeding. most babies with normal regurgitation are happy and there growth is usually outgrow this by their first birthday.
few precautions have to be made like upright positioning after feeding ,elevate the head of the bed,providing small frequent feeds .after 4 mths start with rice based cereals .
i hope i have answered your question
god bless
