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.

5 Month Old Gasps for Air! Help

Just about 4-5 days ago, my 5-month old started making these gasping noises like he couldn't breathe. Usually it happens shortly after he has a bottle of formula. I think it might be baby acid reflux because sometimes I hear the milk come up his throat and he has to swallow it back down. It's usually the worst at night right before he goes to bed.

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.

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...

Advice on Weaning off Alimentum

I have a 7 mo. old son who has been on alimentum since 1 mo due to colic and reflux. He has been doing great on all 1st foods and recently started 2nd foods. I wanted to try another formula since he is older, doing well with solids and alimentum is soooo expensive! I have been transitioning for the last three days with nestle good start and have noticed some spitting up after his bottle and soem non-productive coughing during the day. Does anyone have some experience weaning their child off of alimentum? Thanks much.
