  • Why did you change formulas? Can you change back? Does he have a fever? If he has a fever he may not want to eat as much.

  • Babies usually don't like you to up and change food on him. A gradual change would be best. And if he chugged he probably has alot of gas now so just keep trying to burp him. If you can gradually mix in the new formula (starting with less), that would probably be received better.

  • ohhh what is prosobe? is it like nutramigen? is he having digestive problems, poor thing? my son had thrush early on and it caused him to be very fussy and ear irratic amounts like that. it's hard to figure out sometimes because their little systems are so sensitive

  • we switched cuz he always had a tummy ache after he ate.
    He doesn't have a fever.

  • He may not like the formula.Why did you have to change it? He probably doesnt feel good after his shots either.Call the on-call dr. and just keep offering him his bottle as often as he'll take it.My son went thru sum-n like that and I ended up putting him back on his orginal formula and switching his nipples!

  • i just saw where and why you changed it. you should keep trying and if he doesnt like it in a couple days you should put him back on the other and burp him often.

  • I would not make a change like that within two weeks of vaxing. I would go back to the other formula and try later on.

  • He is fussy cause he ate to fast and got a lot of air. He has gas. I dont think that it has anything really to do with the shots. I dont think it has anything to do with the change in formula either. I had to change my sons formula and I did the same thing you did and just changed all at once and he had no problem. I know this sounds crazy . But my son does it all the time. And that is exactly whats wrong if you can't get to burp or toot. I would try gas drops. They work wonders.
