Olivia’s Story Olivia is a sweet little girl of almost three months who is growing well. She is bottle fed regularly but has three episodes of regurgitation per day, seems to be distressed by fussiness and gassiness and cries a lot. Her cry is heart-breaking and usually at the end of the afternoon. During each episode Olivia appears upset, irritable and fussy, contracts her legs and becomes red-faced. Olivia’s parents often take her for a car drive to relax her. Olivia’s parents have also switched her brand of formula but nothing seems to help. Exhausted and desperate, they seek medical help. After medical examination and parental reassurance, Olivia is prescribed an AR formula. Within a short time the regurgitation episodes decrease, she cries again like an ordinary baby and it is good to see that she feels comfortable again. And Olivia’s parents? They sleep well again!
AR infant formula:
- AR 1 is an infant formula, providing all the important nutrients and ingredients required daily by the young infant up to the age of six months.
- AR 2 is a nutritionally balanced follow-on for- mula for the infant from six months onwards.
- The key nutrient in these foods for special medical purposes is carob bean gum. A safe, unique ingredient that effectively reduces regurgitation and supports gut motility and soft stools.
