What do you think the best formula for gas, fussiness and spitup is? I was told Enfamil Gentlease is good.

The best thing for gas, spitting up and fussiness is your milk... Is that not an option?

It just depends on the baby.... Liam did perfect on Similac Organic and with Molly we tried that and she did horrible... then we tried Similac Sensitive, Enafamil Gentlease, and Parents Choice Soy... and Ironically what worked best for her was plain old Enfamil Lipil...

Depends on the baby some babie have an easier time with one formula over another. I would try one out and see how it works Most of My kids had to be on lactose free for a while

Does she have congenital lactose intolerance or PKU?  Those are the only two metabolic disorders that I personally know of that make an infant unable to tolerate it's mothers milk... the rest of the time it is just mom's diet.   Now, occasionally it can be very difficult to determine what in moms diet is causing the problem, but if you can figure it out and eliminate it, you can nurse just fine.

Anyway... not sure how old your babe is, or if diet may have been your problem, but maybe some info for next time?  :)

They all have to follow the same "recipe".  My daughter was on Parents Choice Gentle and it was great for her Acid, and her tummy problems.
