My Son is almost 3 weeks old he only has a BM once a day but farts constantly and it could clear out a whole room. This is my first child but i have babysat plenty before hand and i've seen that they get stiff from gas and he does but not very bad it more seems like he is upset. I was just wondering if I should switch his formula to soy. Yesterday his BM seemed maybe acidy his bottom was sore and there was a little cut. I mentioned something to the doctor at his 2 week check up about how abnormal is BM and is farts smell and he said if i want i could switch him to soy but he didnt seemed to concerned about it since my son isn't spitting up and he is eating well as he almost gained 2 lbs already from birth.
