Why does my week old baby have sulfur burps?

I'm feeding her both formula and breastmilk. Last night she drank some prepared formula that had been sitting out for about 6 hours, not sure if that's why, but I haven't eaten anything that made my stomach upset. I put her on a sensitive formula because the stuff they gave her in the hospital gave her diarrhea and it's been working for the last 2 days... but now this. Please help, dr not open til tommorrow.

  • If the formula was sitting out for 6 hours, it probably went bad and that could be causing your child's issues.

  • if you did give her milk that wasnt in the fridge .. it went bad, it says on the formula can and just common sense not to drink after 1 hour.. would YOU drink a glass of milk that was sitting on the counter for 6 hours???

  • Then go to the ER! You gave your baby old milk, of course she's going to be sick! You can't give a baby formula that has been sitting out for that long. Maybe while you're at the ER they can give you some info on parenting classes.

  • I agree with the above. Could be the milk. I would get her checked out just in case.

  • prepared formula has a 1 hour life span outside of the fridge.if its ready use, concentrait or even powder, once its opened or made its 1 hour tops.

  • The old formula is the most likely culprit.

  • The formula is probably the reason. They should NOT have formula sitting out that long.
