  • Talk to your baby's doctor! Switching formulas too much can really screw them up!

  • I had switched my son to soy when he was a baby and it constipated him. its ok to add a little bit of Kyro (sp) to their bottle once or twice a day to help w/ the constipation. Prunes or juice never really helped my baby girl.

  • when I had to switch my dd to soy due to intolerance she became constipated. she is still on soy and still gets constipated. It sounds like your LO could have reflux if you've tried switching to different formula. GL

  • I know you FF moms get really mad when a BFing mom brings up BFing with a quesiton like this, but if you have a baby that is having so much trouble with formula and the dr says it's tearing her little tummy up, why not BF? I'm not a crazy BFing Nazi. I don't think formula is poison. But it breaks my heart when a mom has a baby that's having digestive troubles like this and she just keeps switching formulas instead of BFing. Poor baby. I hope she feels better soon.

  • I agree with the last post, you can try to relactate and even just a little breast milk in her diet will likely make a big difference. Here's some info in case you are interested: Good luck either way!
