Infant feeding: specialist milks

Common feeding issues that babies may encounter include colic, reflux and regurgitation. The Department of Health recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months. If breastfeeding is not possible, a range of specialist milks are available to help alleviate the distress caused to babies who experience these feeding issues. This module explores these conditions and the important role pharmacists play in explaining what may cause different feeding issues and how they can be resolved.
