Formula issue

hey. if you have a healthy 2 months old,that spits up after each feeding just a little bit,has colic here and there,gets very gassy,does that mean he needs a special formula or a regular milk based? trying to find the right formula for my little girl and can not decide which one?
she seems to like Gerber with probiotics,but she spits up and passes a lot of gas. which formula should i try???

  • Have you had her checked for reflux yet? My nephew had those same symptoms and he had reflux. He was on soy formula with a little bit of cereal ( to weigh down the formula) and had to be propped up for 30 minutes after each feeding. He was perfect after they switched him!

  • My duighter who is 4 month has severe reflux, allergy to most formulas and baby sleep apnea, shes on a monitor. She has been on 6 diff formulas since she was born. We were adding rice at one point to thicken it. She has been in and out of the hospital for it. Recently a friend of mine, her daughter had a problem and told me to try formula called elecare...it works wonders. My daughter is on a few meds for her breathing and reflux.
