Infant with Reflux

I have a almost 5 month old baby boy with reflux. He was born 13 weeks early. The doctor has him on previcid and it has not seemed to work. We have him on the Similic Advance formula. He does ok the first half of his feed, then the rest of his feed he will fight eating. Sometimes after he burps it gets better. He spits up after almost every feed. He is gaining weight.

Bottle-Fed 6 Month Old

My 6.5 month old has been bottle fed since 2 weeks old. We use the Avent bottles. We've tried to switch to the "3" nipple flow since he was 3 months, without success.

Sippy Cup Suggestions?

My son is almost 14 months, and I have been trying to transition him to either a straw cup or a sippy cup. He does great drinking cold water out of a sippy cup, a few sips here and there, but I can not get him to take milk out of a sippy cup or straw cup. Any suggestions? Additionally, he will not drink cold milk. I have to warm it up to room temperature, and I would like to stop that as well. Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated.
