Problems with Formula

My 1 year old was on Similace with soy for the first 7 months of his life, he was diagnoses with refux also, so he threw up alot. When he was 7 months old the dr. suggeted putting him on Alimentum. When I switched him to the new formula the throwing up stopped but he's had diarea for the past 3-4 months; sometimes up to his back. He's been to the dr's atleast 8 times for this. First they said it was teeth, then cut back on fruit and now they finally told me to take him off forumla and put him on pedialight for 7 days then switch back to...

Advice About Hypoallergenic Formula

Has anyone had success getting an infant to drink Allimentum? And/or has anyone had an infant who had problems with it? My breastfed 6 month old is allergic to milk/soy and our only formula option is hypoallergenic...she will drink 2 oz at most of this stuff - in the past she has rejected other formulas and ultimately we determined it was b/c they didn't agree with her (i.e. made her violently ill in a few cases). I hesitate to force the issue for fear that she'll negatively react to larger quantities of this stuff. Any advice is...

Similac Alimentum Help.

My son is now 6 weeks old. He has been on Alimentum since he was about 3 weeks old. His doctor never really explained anything about it to me, she just said that's what she'd like him to be on after I brought him in complaining about him projectile vomiting a few times. She never tested anything. She keeps tellling me to keep him on this Alimentum. My son hardly sleeps, maybe an hour or so per night/day, not even car rides put him out. He doesn't fuss or anything, he just simply won't sleep. He also constantly eats. He's eating 6 ounces...

From Soy Formula to Soy Milk?

Hi Mom's, My daughter is 14 months old. When she was about 3 months I switched her to soy formula due to acid reflux and gas. I had some of the same issues with my other 2 kids so I felt comfortable going to a soy based formula(which my pedi agreed). When she turned 1 I started giving her cows milk. Since then she has had problems with diarehha. It burns her bottem pretty bad too. She always lets me know when she has gone since it is painful and I change her right away but it still burns her bottem even with Desitin on. She does have some...
