  • Did she just start sitting or is on her hands and knees (getting ready to crawl position) a lot? My boys had severe reflux. And while not on formula, every time they got into a new body position like sitting or crawling their spitting go a lot worse. It could be something simple as sitting, especially since baby has been on the "new" formula for over a month. She could also have a little tummy virus. Call the doc and get some suggestions from the nurse.

  • My daughter spit up a lot formula didn't help her. It seemed to get worse when she was teething. If it isn't bothering her then I'd leave it alone. My daughter's just went away on its own around 9 mo. The formula that worked best for us was Costco's generic...Kirkland brand. *Note: My daughter was breastfed until she was 6 mo. and then formula fed. She spitup regardless of whether she was on breast, bottle, soy, etc.
