Formula making baby fussy?

My baby is four weeks old and if she isn't sleeping or eating she is crying. I also think she sleeps less than usual and definatly not for long enough periods. usually an hour at a time. She seems to be hungry all the time but she is gaining weight well. Should I change her formula? Her nurse didn't think it was a big deal or that I was exagerating. Sorry about the bad spelling.

  • You might try a soy formula. My middle son had trouble and was fussy until we changed to soy.

  • If baby is having such a hard time on formula (and yes all of what you explained are normal side effects for a FF baby) why not breastfeed? I personally couldn't watch my child in that much pain knowing that I could make it all better. Get baby to the breast and relieve her of all that pain.
