Most formulas will upset their tummy. Babies are meant to have formula. There is a formula group on here you could try. I have no experience in formula because I've nursed 2 kids and will be nursing the baby I'm pregnant with now.

No,"most formulas" will not. My son never once had a problem with formula. Please do not make women unnecessarily fearful of using formula just because you prefer breast.

I said most. Every formula fed baby I know has issues with formula. Facts speak for themselves. No reason to take personal on the fact you gave your child formula.

And I know plenty of FF babies who have had zero issues. Again, you are frightening women unnecessarily based on your personal biases.

Babies aren't meant to eat formula so it is very hard to find a formula for a sensative tummy baby. I would give Similac sensitive a try. Good luck
