Doctor wants to switch DD's formula 4 times within a month...? *Added question

DD will be 11 months tomarrow. She has been on similac advance since she was born, when she was a few months old, for the past month and a half she will puke after every bottle. I started letting her have a few drinks but then taking it away for a while, or supplementing with juice (dr highly against this tho) and it doesnt matter. If she gets a drink of formula, she will puke. and not just spit up. It was full force puking down my face, chest and into my pretty new bra (not the point lol)

At her 10 month checkup i told the doctor and he said to change her to half formula, half milk fora week and then whole milk. We did that, and it still happened. Called him up and he said keep her on whole milk. So we did, and it never got better. I called him back and he said to buy Similac Go and Grow (for ages 9-24 months)

Its supposily the closest thing between formula and whole milk. But within a month period shes been on similac advance, half and half, whole milk and now back on formula, and then in a month he wants her back on whole milk. That just seems like alot considering its had the same results so far. 

I feel like all im going to end up doing is fucking her up stomach and thats not what i'm trying to do. I just want to find something to help her with the puking. She'll puke and then scream for 10+ minutes after she pukes and you can just feel her stomach turning before she pukes.

I've even went back to burping her after a bottle and a few times thats just caused her to puke anyways.

Please don't bash, just give me some advice (besides switching doctors, i'm strongly considering that even tho i <3 this doctor) 

Anybody?


A few people mentioned allergies or lactose intolerant...would she still be gaining weight like she is? Shes over the 95th% for height and weight and has been big for her age since she was just little.

She can handle yogurt, cheese, and milk products just not the milk itself.

So far we tried the go and grow yesterday afternoon and this morning with no puke. Hope this works.

So your strongly against getting a second opinion even though that could be in the child's best interest? That's messed up.

I'm not sure what to tell you. My dd was on the same formula until she turned a year and we switched to whole milk and she never had a problem. I hope you find something that works soon!

 I would try soy, or almond milk, or maybe goats milk. or if you still want her on formula try soy formula

Has your doctor considered allergies? I was in the hospital when dS was 9 weeks old. He had one bottle of formula and ended up pukeing for the rest of the day. Ends up he's allergic so he been nothing but BF ever since.

So many things could be the cause and I don't want to give out information that could be wrong for your situation. You should ask to see a pediatric GI doctor to get a more in depth answer and a better solution.

Possible causes
Lactose intolerance
Protein intolerance
Delayed gastric emptying
GERD
An allergy to a specific ingredient
Plyoric muscle stiffness
A fungal infection of the stomach tissues or esophagus tissues
An obstruction of some sort

And the list goes on , you really need to request a referral to a specialist.

Try soy formula or soy milk. Sounds like a lactose allergy
