  • When my daughter (now 6) was a baby there was something called Gentlease. It was made by Enfamil. It was good for her. I just googled it -

    Clinically shown to reduce fussiness or gas. Help reduce your baby's digestive troubles with the formula that's closer to breast milk than any soy-based formula.

    Gentlease LIPIL is clinically shown to significantly reduce fussiness or gas: Easy-to-digest proteins that have been partially broken down Reduced levels of lactose* And it's patterned after breast milk: Milk-based Similar whey to casein protein ratio† Includes LIPIL, our blend of DHA and ARA, for brain and eye development.

  • What does the doctor recommend? should be voicing your concerns to him/her.

  • I understand that you formula feeding moms get your feathers all ruffled when we suggest you should BF, but when you have a baby that is miserable, sick, and not able to tolerate their formula why wouldn't you just relactate and breastfeed your child?
