Join Dr. Enrique Hernandez-Sanchez, pediatric gastroenterologist, as he reviews current gastroesophageal reflux clinical practice guidelines, emphasizing non-pharmacological first-line approaches in the management of the symptomatic infant. He will explain why these approaches, such as avoiding overfeeding and thickening feeds, are recommended first over reflux medications. Finally, he’ll review the thickening options available for use with infants, and explain how to use Gelmix Infant Thickener for breast milk and formula.
