If you have been given a reason, we may be able to help you. Lots of moms are given mistaken advice by medical professionals. Donor milk can be used also. Human Milk 4 Human Babies and EatsOnFeets are two really good sources. Paced bottlefeeding also helps with gas. Feedings are smaller but more frequent, baby is held sitting, bottle parallel to the floor, slowest flow nipple is used, baby burped after every ounce.

Can I ask why you can't nurse? How old is baby? Is pumping an option? Donor milk?

Sometimes it doesn't matter what formula you use. My second son got pumped breastmilk until 3 months (he has a condition that effects muscles and tendons including his jaw) and then we tried several formulas. He was completely miserable until he got whole milk at a year. We had tried soy, different brands, etc.

Congratulations! Would you consider donor milk? There's several sites that have donors that have been tested and approved for donation. Most donors just charge shipping.
