Enfamil Lipil (Gentle) vs Similac Advance with Iron

Our second son is three weeks old. we nursed for the first week and a half while weaning to Similac Advance with Iron. Our son does well enough on formula in general but spits up and has some minor gas (some fussiness but doesn't seem to have an issue passing the gas and stools are what they should be). But, since he does spit up (not a ton but more than a little on most bottles - and we burp plenty) and has the minor fussienss we decided to switch to Enfamil Lipil Gentle formula. But he is still spitting up - is there even a difference...

Could It Be Acid Reflux?

My 1 month old has been very fussy the last couple of weeks, and I'm not sure whats wrong. He hardly naps during the day, but will sleep for 2-3 hours at a time during the night. It also seems like he's constantly hungry, so I nurse him every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I know my milk supply is adequate. Usually halfway through a feeding he'll stiffen up and start to crying really hard, and then do the same after a feeding. This is my first baby, so I don't have much experience. We thought it might be gas, so we started giving him those gas drops. A...

One Month Old Baby & Bowel Movements

Hey Ladies, I actually have two questions. My first question is about my one month old daughter. Since she was born we had to change her formula from Enfamil to Enfamil Gentle and finally now to Good Start. She is VERY gassy and was having trouble with passsing stool. Since on Good Start she seems to be having regular bowel movements. My concern is though she cries almost everytime. I have to take off her diaper, wipe her & continously pump her legs. The stools are soft too! So I am at a loss. Had her to the ped already and...

Burping Help and Gas Relief for a 4Mo

Hi, I have a 4mo little girl who had a lot trouble with gas early on. I wasn't able to breastfeed, so started her on formula and had to try several until we found one she could tolerate (Nutramigen). She still had lots of gas, but we burped (endlessly!) and used Mylicon drops on occassion and she finally started getting better a little before 3mo. She seemed to have the burping down and no longer had any gas pains. This seems to have ended. Last week, when she started getting more distracted during feedings, she just wasn't...

14-Month-old Is Constipated

My 14-month-old son is constipated a few times a week. I have been in contact a few times with the pediatrician's office and am doing everything I can. This started when he was switched over from formula to whole milk. Also, he does not drink much water. I am always forcing it on him, but he won't drink much. I give him prunes or blueberries to eat, make his baby cereal with prune juice, give him whole grain foods, etc. I also water down his milk and occasionally put Karo syrup in his milk. He still has problems with constipation. ...

Switching from Similac to Enfamil (Add On)

My daughter has been supplementing with Similac Advanced but was given a container of Enfimil at the hospital. They are the same as far as ingrediants and the DHA and ARA. Could she use that can of Enfamil before buying another can of the Similac? TJ is 10 1/2 wks old and does very well on the supplement formula. I watch him during the day and told her I would ask since she is at work. Thanks, J. ****Thank you all for your advice. I have given my daughter all of your info and will let her decide. I think she was thrilled to hear...

Allergic to Enfamil?

My 3 month old has had feeding issues since he was a month old. He gets a stomach ache/cramps/gas and has bad reflux and nothing helped. Suspected milk allergy, switched to Enfamil Nutramigen but didn't seem to get much better. Tried Similac Alimentum and saw a huge improvement after a week. But if we give him the Enfamil, all his symptoms come back. Belly ache, cramping, gas, reflux gets worse and he chokes/aspirates and spits up all day. He is super fussy and cranky. He fights sleep during the day and wakes up more through the night. He...

Awful Spit Up

I have a 15 week old who is always spitting up. She is a happy spitter and gaining weight so my ped is not doing anything about it. She is only formula fed (but spit up breast milk before I stopped nursing) and takes 4-5 oz every 3 hours...she spits up the entire time she is not eating or sleeping....and I keep her still, burp, upright...She is my third baby and by far the easiest, but her and I are have to change our clothes many times during the day....any suggestions? THANK YOU!

Throw up or Spit Up?

I have a three month old who just started throwing up (spitting up) after he eats. I am wondering if this is a virus or if maybe it is reflux. How can you tell the difference between throw up and spit up? The stomach bug is going around at my husbands work so I am thinking it's that since it just started yesterday. He doesn't have a fever and he is taking 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours. I have been giving him some pedialite too. but he throws some of it up every time. He really isn't too grouchy and he has plenty of wet diapers but no poop...
