What's wrong with my baby?

My son is on Enfamil for fussiness and gas. But he's still really gassy and fussy. He'll be fine one minute and screaming in pain the next. We bought gas drops but that doesn't seem to help much either. I don't know what else to do. HELP ME!

  • Try the Gentlease, it's lactose free. Or a different brand. Or soy. But really, this is a question for his doctor.

  • I had similar problems with my daughter and now we give her Enfamil Gentlease. The mylicon drops didn't help her either. We went thru several different formulas until we found the right one for her. I also tried gripe water, which you can get from CVS or Walgreens. Good luck!

  • It's not too late to relactate. It's obvious your baby isn't doing well on formula.

  • what bottle are you using? now that's a big difference. like kim said, NOT EVERYONE can breastfeed...lets just say I never "produced" any breast milk, don't believe me? ask my obgyn..she said it happened to her too, on her 3RD pregnancy.

  • it is a rare case when someone cant breastfeed due to medical reasons. most reasons are NOT real reasons.
