Did your infant spitup alot? what formula did you use?

My little one 4 weeks old has been on similac advance and he spits up after every burp and every feeding or just sitting there after a feeding. He has lots of gas and fusses about it quit a bit anyways ive heard soy is easier on their tummies so i decided to switch to soy its only been a day so i cant quite tell how well its working but seems to be easier on his tummy and he isnt spitting up as much. just wondering if any of your babies had this too and what formula seemed to be best for your baby?

  • Look into the dangers of soy. I would avoid it if at ALL possible... if he's not in pain and unable to keep enough down to gain weight, it's best to stick to the most basic formula.

    My second was a spitter. He was/is breastfed. He stopped completely around 14 months... it slowed around 9-10 months. Some kids just spit up. Have you thought of relactating so at least what comes back up isn't disgusting?

  • I would talk to your child ped. I had the same problem we went through so many formulas. Doc finally suggested Enfamil A.R.

  • Maybe try burping more during the feedings. Give 2-3 oz and burp. IDK, my kids are breastfed and frequent burping helped them!
