Re: I made a HUGE mistake............

I think it was not so much that he stomach is sensitive to any formula but it was probably just a shock to her system. W/ my ODd we had to try several types of formula until we found one she could tolerate. I EBF her for 5 mo before she recieved formula and it took us couple of mo to find one she could tolerate, the rest did the same thing to her.

At least you know that sometimes the BF is easier in the long run. I wouldn't worry too much, we all do stuff we regret from time to time.

Re: I made a HUGE mistake............

When I had to stop nursing my newborn I gave her formula and she too threw it up for a short time. She soon got used to it and was fine there on out. We called the hospital and they told us what to do and watch out for.

BFing would have been my choice but there are times when that isn't possible.

Good for you finding out the hard way. I did too. I tried the crap a few times and my son was so sick. I had low milk supply and thought that just a few ounces wouldn't hurt. Well, it did! I will never give any of my DC that stuff again! He is almost 2 and we love BFing. Keep it up. Once they get to the solids, BF is much more fun.

Re: I made a HUGE mistake............

Was your can of formula old or opened too long maybe?? I think you have to use a can within a month of opening it. Since she is mostly breastfed maybe that was the problem, you didn't use it fast enough.

Anyways, maybe that was the issue but either way I think it was a sign!
