My son is about a mo old and I am breastfeeding him.He has horrible gas and it seems like his tummy is always upset. Now I drink soy milk, nothin spicy or any foods they tell you to keep away from and it doesn't seem to matter. I was thinking of switching to formula so it is a consistant milk for him. He is not loosing weight...but is this a good idea or should I stick with breastfeeding? HELP!

You will only regret your decision to switch. There is nothing gentler and more able to digest then breastmilk, PERIOD, there is no argument with this one. If your child is having troubles with breastmilk formula will only intensify the problem in a very extreme way. There is no question what is best for baby and that is to continue breastfeeding. If you are supplementing at all this could be your problem and it should be stopped asap! Good Luck and know that by breastfeeding you are doing best by baby (especially in this situation).

My youngest was like that. I had him supplementing with some formula also to keep him more hydrated and for when I had a sitter. Wellll I was worried about the gas so I tried a different formula: OMG. I have never heard him cry like that, even to this day. My sm was surprised I was so concerned... she said both her babies were like that because she didn't bf. I am not saying that women who formula feed are all wrong... But most veterans (Hehe her kids are in their teens now) will tell you they wish they had more education on breast back then. Colic was unbelievable for many of them.
