  • You should try to keep the cowsmilk away until 1 year because they have difficulty digesting it. You can try a different formula and see if she likes that.

  • Call the doctor. You might have to try different formulas until you find one she can handle. They make sensitive tummy formulas.

  • Are you sure she isn't allergic? I only ask because if she just didn't like it I would think she would flat out refuse it, the fact that she's throwing it up would make me suspect allergy or lactose intolerance. Did you try the Gerber Good Start? It might be called Nestle Good Start now, I think the name changed at some point recently, but that is the one that worked for my dd. She has a casein allergy which is a milk protein and would throw up any other formula I tried.

  • www.milkshare.org

    It's a site for mothers like you :) The milk is donated, you just pay shipping.

    Be careful and screen carefully, though.

    I *might* be able to donate. PM me if you want :)

  • When i was breastfeeding my 3rd son i became pregnant with my 4th son and my 3rd son stopped BF, but he was 13 months. I have heard your milk can taste different due to the preg hormones...i think that is why my 3rd son stopped, but i didnt dry up at all. I had the opposite problem. I had more milk and leaked the entire pregnancy. My 4th son...who will be one on April 22nd got "real" milk from the start. I would ask your pediatritian if your LO can have pediasure and still try to BF. My son was given the OK to have pediasure at 9months because he was not putting on enough weight and was diagnosed with Failure to thrive.

  • Goats milk - it's super gentle, and I've seen WIC participants that get it for their babies who can't even handle nutramagin.
