Trying nutramigen

my baby has been very fussy for the past month now and the doc says its a so called viral infection but my motherly instict tells me otherwise. for the past month he has been spitting up more ,gassy,fussy,his body movements look like hes trying to climb up my chest with his legs and its either gas or constipation or abdominal cramping idk but his symptoms sound a lot like secondary lactose intolerance a milk intolerance without the rashes and hive. so im trying nutramigen hopefully this works. does anyone have any experiences with this? how long does it take to work or relieve symptoms a little? Also he just started having diareah for about 2 weeks now but its gotton alot worse within the past few days. his pediatrician said to give him soy for a couple days to firm up his bowel movements ha i did that and now the poor things constipated and awake half the night.oh i failed to mention hes two months old. i had breastfeeding problems....also why cant i heat this formula i know bc of the lgg or something but what is this and why is it important? if those arnt there anymore if i do heat it will it make nutrients less affected and hurt him and does he need this if he is lactose inrolerant or has a milk allergy? what if i use a bottle warmer?

  • My daughter was put on this formula when she was 2 months old. She had awful acid reflux and my pedi thought she was lactose intolerant. I warmed the bottles right on the stove. I wasn't told I couldn't and nothing on the container said anything otherwise. I never really saw a difference with her so, I used my instincts and switched her to a different formula at about 5 months. Totally different child from then on out. If you do not see results within a month I would reconsider the formula, but it may work well for you. Good luck!!

  • I never warmed formula beyond what was "lukewarm" from the tap. Just didn't feel comfortable doing so.

  • Good luck. We never warmed our baby's bottles. She never got used to warm formula (or Initially the breast milk from the fridge). W used room temp filtered water.
