My baby is 6 wks old and we are on our 5th formula and he seems miserable with tummy aches. I have tried Mylicon and started Gripe Water this morning but it's making him spit up really bad, then he's starving an hour later. He has gas so bad that all he does is cry, he's never happy. The only time he sleeps is when I'm holding him. Looking for what others have tried and have had good results with. My doc says he should outgrow it around 3 months, I don't want him unhappy and in pain that long.Answer Question

Soy should be the formula of last choice. It is by far the worst for brain growth and there are other issues with soy. Brain growth is the most important task in the first year. Of course human milk is perfect, cows aren't too smart, soy beans aren't smart at all!
It would be best for your baby if you could relactate. Any problems you had in the beginning if you tried to nurse may not be a problem now. Reasons that you think you can't breastfeed my not be contraindications to breastfeeding. While you are relactating you could get milk from other mothers using the website milkshare. La Leche League Leaders help mothers relactate when their babies can't tollerate formula all the time. They will help by phone for free.
