  • I would ask your peditrian. But my cousin gave her son a soy based one and it helped her son out tremendously!

  • Oh, ....yes...you it's true, you do get a prescription from a dr. even for w.i.c. program milk/formula .
    Nurtrimygen is supposed to be good for allergies.
    Soy is sometimes a good change.
    Never add TOO much formula ! And possible add more water and less formula (just a bit more)so it's no too thick, if in a bottle mixed, dry powder use less powder, try different ways.
    Or I've heard to offer a 1/2 teaspoon of yogurt to each bottle, I did that and it kept my child from spitting up gobs of extra.
    Good start isn't the best from what i've heard.
    Or it could be too much iron. Not digesting properly, maybe lactose intollerant, theirs lactose free enfamil, and lactose free Similac.
