  • I have my daughter who was spitting up though her nose and everything. she we in nicu for a week for this issue get a swallow study done and do a follow up with your doctor there could be a number of reason for this. every child is differnt so what is wrong with my daughter wouldn't be the answer your seeking for yours but the swallow study will find ways that work best to feed and any treatments that are needed. for now though thicken the formula with rice cereal and get dr brown y cut nipple.

  • Could be the excess saliva he is producing from teething- we've had our daughter 8 months as well on Goodstart DHA/ARA- the orange stuff since she was 2 months. She spits up a bit more lately, but she's cutting her second tooth.

  • I use good start dha and ara with natural cultures.. it's a little easier on there stomachs. I used the orange can for about a week and then switched cause this was easier for my son to digest. It is a little bit more expensive though but if you get wic they do cover it.
