My daughter is now 5 months and has been switched 5 times on formula. She started out on Similac Advanced, then Sesitive, then Sensitive concentrate, then to Enfimil Premium, now on Soy and nothing seems to help. He problem is she'll drink only 4 oz every 4 hours but vomits, not spits up, over half of each bottle up. We burp her often and I've gone to see my WIC center and my doctor and no one is being of any help. I don't know what to do because everyone tells me for a 5 month old she's underweight. If anyone has any advice on what I should feed her to get her the nutrients she needs but also help with her keeping it down please let me know.Answer Question

Use Dr. Browns bottles. Feed her in an upright position. Burp her every 2 oz. Sit her up on your lap & gently rub her back & bounce her slowly on your knee while holding her chin up or walk around with her upright against you & pat her back. I think for some reason she is not releasing the gas/air from the bottle. ONLY use premixed liquid formula. If it comes out projectile then it may be caused by trapped air.

milk protein allergy- nutramigen
my DD had this issue and was failure to thrive. the back of her head is flat because we had to keep her in a carseat (projectile vomiting)
she will always be short because it took us soooo long to resolve the feeding issue.She even spewed breast milk. Breast is best, right? not when your kid is expelling every feeding :(
My DS also had the issue. By then I had learned that I could eliminate dairy and BF exclusively. 13 1/2 and still on the boob and beginning to experiment with whole milk. Doing fine.
