I think my baby cannot tolerate regular formula,  He cries and has so much gas after eating and then he spits up a lot, then he is fine untill he goes to spit up agian and then nothing but you can tell the poor little guy is uncomfortable, Anyway they gave him zantac and the gentleease formula and still nothing so I have a can of soy formula I was thinking of tryin.  My daughter had this same problem.. do you think trying the soy would be a good idea?

** He has to have Nutramagin, tryed soy and he screamed all night called the dr to ask what to do and he said to try it and it worked like magic!!!! Go figure this is the formula my daugter ended up having to have****

I was like that too &my mom said she put me on soy formula. I don't think it would hurt to try it. I didn't have a lot of issues with either of my boys. my youngest had a little acid reflux but he's all better now.

I think soy is a very good idea. Sounds like he is lactos intollerant

Similac Sensitive.

I would try soy it worked with both my sons. I use the organic Earths Best and my baby loves it although it can be pricey.

My grandma keeps saying he is colicky, I dont think so he can be consoled, you can just tell he is uncomfortable after eating, He cries and fusses and then spits up, then he is fine for awhile and then does the same thing all over agian.  This happens for hours after he eats.

It's def worth a try. However, my son's gastrologist(sp) says that a LOT of kids that have a problem with milk based formulas also have issues with soy based formulas bc our body processes them very much in the same way. So, if the soy doesn't work please don't automatically assume it's not the formula.
