ok so my 6 week old is a little piggy i cannot get her full for the life of me i give her anywhere from 4-5 oz and an hour later she is hungry again so i will give her another 2. I know people have asked this kinda of question but i feel like this is just to the extreme with her. When she is up i literally have to feed her every hour and i have tryed other things to make sure she isnt hungry and of course she is. I have switched formuals from similac advanced to sensitive to soy but i have weened her off not just cold turkey it shes on soy right now i have tryed mixing powder with the liquid to try to thicken it up and dont judge but i have also tryed alittle rice cereal i have heard all the she cant digest it at her age and what not but i feel like its the only thing i can do to help her get alittle more full and she is also really gassy like farts all the time and i dont know whats up with that either help me out here pleaseAnswer Question

First of all, mixing powder formula with liquid to thicken it up is really concentrating the formula and that's not good. it would be like feeding her the concentrated liquid without adding water and that can really cause some bad digestive problems. That's probably what's causing her to be so gassy and uncomfortable. You really need to stop doing that. Second, she is way too young for any cereal at all. Babies' digestive tract is not able to deal with anything other than formula or breast milkat 6 weeks. This is also what's probably giving her such tummy trouble. When babies' have any kind of tummy problems, gas, or pain, they equate that with hunger and cry appropriately to be fed, when sometimes all they need is a bit of extra comfort and maybe some drops to deal with the glassiness.
