For various reasons I don't think that thickened formula is the best idea for getting infants to sleep through the night. Some babies sleep through the night and others don't - it depends on their internal clock and not necessarily what you feed them.

However, it seems strange to me that it isn't being marketed for babies who suffer from acid reflux. Even though I hated feeding Gwyn formula when I was trying to rebuild my milk supply (after the GERD diagnosis) the thickened formula helped a great deal with controlling the acid as well as adding calories so she could regain the weight she'd lost. I'm not saying I advocate formula over breast feeding but I do think that there are a lot of people who formula feed and whose babies have GERD for whom thickened formula might be a big help.

Please. My kids eat solids like, well, toddlers who are almost 2 and they STILL get up at night. Thickened formula isn't going to help people get a good night's sleep though I bet it will sell a lot to desperate, sleep deprived parents.

I hated when people told me I should give the little one cereal before bed... at three or four months ... seriously people. Sorry. Not your fault. Anyway, keep breastfeeding and there is no need for formula or cow's milk for that matter! :)
