Does Anybody Baby Gasp for Air After Alimentum?

My twins are now on Alimentum for 2 days now and after feedings they have gasped for air, one baby crying while gasping? Very scary & disheartening! I've called nurse once the day it first occurred but she said it's from them adjusting and possibly still gassy, does anyone else have any info as to why this could be happening? I want to stop the Alimentum all together but this is the 3rd formula, from Similac Advanced to Soy now this.

Question About Similac Alimentum

I have a two month old who has had some feeding issues. His doctor put him on Alimentum two days ago because of his spitting up. He had been gaining weight well. My doc put him on this to help ease his tummy. Since being put this formula he had wanted to eat more often and more formula at a time. Before being switched he ate every 6 oz every 3-4 hours. Now he wants 7 oz every 2-3 hours. He had been sleeping through the night since he was 6 weeks old so he only goes through 5-6 bottles a day. FYI he is a big boy. At birth he was 10 lbs 1...

Baby Crying While Bottle Feeding at 4 Months, Starting Formula

We are transitioning from breastmilk to formula for my 4 month old baby. As we are increasing the amount of formula per feeding (every feeding is mixed with some breastmilk), we are noticing that he seems to turn his head to the side and cry for the first few minutes. After this time he will sometimes get the hang of it and finish the bottle, but sometimes he will end up only taking a few ounces. It does not seem to be gas related. I am wondering what may be causing this--pain, distraction, etc. It seems to be about the same for...

15 Month Old on Alimentum

My 15 month old daughter is back on 100% Alimentum after trying whole milk, soy milk, rice milk, and special toddler formula. All caused severe constipation and personality changes (except toddler formula which she simply refused). We go back to her GI in a week, so hopefully we'll get some answers. Just curious if anyone else has ever gone through this and what the outcome was. We are suspecting food allergies (can't do definitive tests until she's older) and are just not sure where to go from here. Anyone else been through this or...
