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.

Blood in Baby's Diaper

My breastfeeding two month old son has been having 'stringy' blood in his poop since yesterday morning.

Any other moms/babies experience this?

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.

6 Week Old Infant. Reflux with Possible Milk Protein Intollerance, on Alimentum

At 3 weeks old my daughter started showing signs of reflux. She would arch her back at feeding, cry, want more and more formula to sooth the pain and would spit up and then cry. Our oldest had reflux as an infant with the same symtoms so we took our daughter the the ped where he prescribed Zantac. The Zantac didnt seem to work so we were then switched to Prevacid and put on Enfamil A.R.(which was what our son was on and worked wonders). She seemed to do a little better but was up a lot during the night and didnt sleep well during the day....
