Carobel and SMA extra hungry (used to be SMA White)

Does anyone know if you can put Carobel in SMA extra hungry? My littlest has been prescribed Carobel for acid reflux. He's 4 weeks old and currently on 3oz. But he kept wanting more and when I tried him on a 4 oz it was too much for his belly. But the 3oz on the gold (now pro) just wasn't filling him even though he cant handle 4oz yet. So I've moved him over to the SMA extra hungry in a hope it would settle him as its heavier.

But can you put carobel in it as its a milk thickener? Has anyone else used it in the extra hungry?

All my children ended up being moved over to the extra hungry over the years so I'm not so much worried about using it as its worked for my others. But they never suffered from reflux so I've never had to deal with carobel until recently.

Not used carobel sorry but have you looked into Cow's Milk Protein allergy? One of the symptoms can be overfeeding as they confuse pain with hunger.

HollowQueen, this is a question for your health visitor. Or you could phone the SMA helpline (on the package) and ask them.
