  • if it is similac or enfimal then those have so much milk base to them , if the baby is spitting it up then i suggest atlking to your dr about changing formula . you should change to nestle good start DHA and ARA
    nestle good start actually breaks down the milk proteins alot more then similac and enfimil so it is easier to digest. it is so much easier on babies tummy. i really suggest doing that but talk to your dr first so they can tell you how to change it , also ask about nutramigen
    it is by enfimil but the milk proteins are broken down even more then in the good start so if it is sensitivity to milk then the nutramigen or the good start may be best . good luck

  • talk to your dr abou tthe nutramigen then it is the same brand
    like i said the milk proteins are broken down more. so it is easier for baby , also talk to your dr about a possible allergy test . they do those about 3 months ifit hasnt gotten better.
    i hope it goes well , keep me updated on how your little one is doing . good luck and congrats.

  • My daughter did that ALOT when she was first born. We had to switch her to the simalac sensitive and that helped a good bit, than we also started putting mylacon drops in her bottles as well (sorry if the spelling isnt correct) But both of those helped alot!! Goodluck, i know how frustrating it can get!!

  • Happened with my first for about 3 days when I called to Dr. Not every time he ate either. Took him in and turns out he was allergic to milk based products. She could be allergic and not throw up every time... That is how Levi was... and Usually only threw up at night. We had to switch to the UNGODLY expensive formula for the next 3 months and the slowly reintroduced him to milk based products. I would call her Pedi.

  • She could be lactose intolerant, have a milk protein allergy, or have reflux.

  • have you tried breastmilk? its easier on the tummy than any kind of formula.

    Answer by Precious333 at 5:21 PM on May. 17, 2009

  • even breastmilk can cause problems if a baby is lactose intolerant...
