Is anyone's child on Lactose-free formula?

My daughter is 2 months old and I just recently put her on Similac Sensitive due to spitting up a lot, constipation, and too much gas. She does so much better on it and is such a happy baby now.

  • No, my son is on Nutramigen. He did horribly on breastmilk, similac and isomil. He has reacted to a LOT of foods though.

  • My son was on Simalac Isomile soy.
    If she is spitting up alot you could
    try the bottles with the bags. I used
    those on my son. It reduces gas and air
    in the belly!

  • My son is on Enfamil Prosobee, which is soy. It really helped his tummy problems.

  • Yeah- we used Enfamil Lacto-free until about 2 months ago- when we switched him over to the Enfamil Next Step w/ lipil. he had a lot of problems with gas and spitting up ( and i mean LOTS of spit up at a time- like a fountain) when he was younger and those problems were soooo much more mild when we made the switch to the lacto-free.

  • My daughter has been on LactoFree Enfamil since day one. She has never had a problem with spitting up or constipation but she did have gas when she was younger. She is now almost 11 months old and is still doing great.

  • To IfLoveWas Born, I actually did make the switch to the Playtex Dropin bottles and she has been doing wonderfully on them....she still spits up a bit but otherwise she's not fussy or gassy anymore.
