My 7 month old son, he use to throw up after every feeding almost. He was on Similac Premium, so our Dr. recommend to cut his formula strength in half for a week and work our way back up, we did that he is fine on half, no throwing up. She then recommend to switch him to Similac Sobee (soy) formula. We did that now he is very constipated and he is still throwing up, not as bad as before 1-2 times a day. We even tried to feed him 4 oz burp and then time for his stomach to rest, no difference other then we are feeding him all the time! I am very worried.. Any other ideas out there to help us out? Thank you!Answer Question

Are you still burping him often throughout the feeding? Give him a little formula then burp him, then a little more & burp him again and on & on. He may be sucking the formula down so fast that he is swallowing air too & when he is finished, the air comes up & pushes out the formula. Burp multiple times during the feedings. Also, ONLY use LIQUID pre-mixed formula. Don't use powdered formula. There may be something in your water (even since you are boiling it) that is causing an upset stomach in your son. Use Dr. Browns bottles with the right nipple size for his age.
