Re: What is your choice of formula?

I've tried supplementing with Similac Advance, Gerber Good Start Gentle, and Gerber Good Start Soy...but my dd has FPIES reactions to all of them (delayed vomiting and lethargy, and mucousy & bloody stools). I have a can of both Nutraminigen and Alimentum to try but she's refused to drink them. I need formula sooo rarely that I'm just going to try pumping for now, but I will try them again eventually.

Re: What is your choice of formula?

Up & Up Sensitive .... the ONLY thing that he keeps down, doesnt constipate and we havent touched the Mylicon since we switched!

Breastmilk ... extremely gassy, colicky, tons of spit up
Similac Sensitive made him spit up alot, a little better with the gas.
Similac Sensitive with RS... made him spit up more AND constipated him.
Up&Up with RS.... same problem.
Up&Up Soy and Similac Soy .... even MORE spit up exorcist style (apparently he has a soy allergy) He would spit up literally every drop he drank!

Re: What is your choice of formula?

We started off our daughter on Enfamil Newborn and not only was she constantly spitting up, but she just never seemed satisfied. We would finish feeding her and she would either 1) scream until we fed her again in an hour or 2) spit up if we tried to feed her more. We then switched to Similac Advance and she did a complete 180. She was satisfied after her feeding and spitups were essentially non-existant. I'm definitely sticking with Similac.

Re: What is your choice of formula?

Started with Enfamil, but I'm cheap, and the lovely ladies here assure me that generics are fine, so I've done the Target store brand and the Wegman's (local-ish grocery chain) store brand. She's done fine with all, but we are 50-50 bf/formula.

We now use Up & Up Triple Advantage. Our boy still spits up a bit, but he spits everything up, it's not that bad most days. We were on Up & Up Prebiotic, but he seems to poop better on this formula.
