  • Yea if you have WIC then your dr. will have to write you a prescription to take to the wic office with you. My DD is also on soy and my dr. had to give me a note inorder to get her formula changed to soy. Just tell your dr. that she does fine on soy.

  • Tell your doctor. Never hurts to try. I had the same problem with my now five year old but his problem was reflux so changing formula didn't help. If the formula you've been trying does help you then def ask the doc for a perscription because that's the only way wic will pay for it.

  • is it spit up or throw up?

    It certainly doesn't hurt to ask. I thought my son was eating fine and he wasn't-- he got dehydrated and ended up with severe enough jaundice that he ended up in the NICU. Pediatricians are there for you kids-- so ask away!

  • My son had the same problem. He kept down water, but not formula, we switched to the soy, and he was fine.

  • I think I would ask about switching formula also. My nephew had the same problem and it took a while to find the source, but it ended up that he was sensitive to regular formula. They ended up changing him to soy and that solved the problem.
