 Has anybody used this?? I have been, and I'm not sure if THIS is what is causing  his gassy belly...or what?!

So, your opinions are appreciated :)

EDIT: He is 1....not like, a teeny newborn. And he doesn't sleep through the night hardly ever, and I thought it would help.

I was tempted but the possibility of tummy problems made me reconsider.

 what makes it "nighttime"? I'm guessing it's got something in it to help them feel fuller longer? If so, then yeah, it's probably that which is causing a gassy belly...

It's been known to cause alot of problems since its working against a baby's natural tendancies.  Gas in mild cases and failure to thrive in extreme cases (baby's system forgets how to function properly and baby doesn't eat properly anymore).  Read everything you can on it.  Ill see if I can't find the sites

I called Enfamil when it first came out. What makes it "night time" is that it has rice starch in it, which make the baby feel fuller longer, so they can sleep through the night. However, newborns NEED to wake throughout the night to feed!

I guess I should add, he is 1, and not like a newborn......

It could a reaction to the added starch to make babies fuller... I give my 9 month old daughter Enfamil Lipil and she's as happy as can be.. :) never a problem.

Quoting afallingstar741:

Even at one some babies aren't ready to sleep through the night... My two year old still doesn't lol. It stinks though so I understand what you're going through & why you'd want to try it.

To answer your question though... Yeah it definately could cause the tummy problems.
