Similac Sensitive RS

Sarah - posted on 06/05/2010 ( 6 moms have responded )




So, after trying a couple formulas, we are switching to Similac Sensitive RS for our little one's ridiculous spitting up issue. I am talking about a large spit up every feeding. Thankfully it is just once though usually and he continues to eat, and seems to be happy about it.. Doesn't have reflux, but wondering how long Similac takes to see results??? Anyone used this formula and did you see results and if so, how long did it take to see results.??

My son took Similac Sensitive, because we thought he was lactose intolerant. We also went through the whole spitting up at every feeding, but it wasn't a lot like ur baby. But because he kept spitting up, we did the same thing...we kept switching formulas to see which one would work best for his little tummy. We tried him on Insamil, which is a soy based, my son did not like that one at all. We tried Enfamil, another type of Enfamil which had rice in it so it was a thicker formula and even on that one my son was spitting up. So at that point I finally said "That's it we're switching back to Similac!" So we stayed on the Similac Sensitive then a couple months later, we switched to Similac Advanced. And my son is doing just fine, he's perfectly healthy.

I switched Grace to Similac Sensitive after 3 wks and saw results almost immediatly. She is now 7 months and still using the same formula. We also had problems with Grace spitting up and I was really concerned about it - especially because she is little to begin with. I tried feeding her smaller amounts more often and that seemed to work. Gradually, we increased the amount and fewer feeding. Some times babies stomachs can't handle large amounts of formula.

There was another time when Grace was spitting up a lot and we took her to the dr. to find out that she had a stomach virus - it took 3 weeks to completly go away. That was frustrating.

The one thing you have to keep in perspective, if your baby seems satisfied and happy then your baby is getting enough nutrients.

My son is 3 weeks (almost 4) and we started him out on Similac Advance which made him extremely spitty and gassy and fussy. We switched to just Similac Sensitive and within the first few feedings he was like a new baby. He barely spits up anymore and the gas he does have doesn't seem to bother him like the painful gas he had with the Similac advance. So I hope the switch works for you. My pediatrician told us that it usually takes about a week to know if a formula is working or not. Good luck!

My son is 5 months old has been on this formula for 2 weeks now and after trying many different kinds this has been the best. We seen results in about 3-4 days of using and we now only go through one bib instead of 4-5 receiving blankets. He was happy before but even more happy now and like to lay on the floor again and squeal. Good luck hope it helps!

Hi. My son is 3 months old, and he is on this formula. He has been on this formula for about 2 months. Yes i have seen results. He doesnt spit up as much as he used to. all babies are going to spit up some. But his went down alot. It took about a week for it to start working on my son. It has rice cereal in it to make it heavier and to keep it down. Hope this helps. If u have any other questions just let me know. Good Luck!

dont know how old your LO is but just switching formulas can be hard on his/her system. switching to often and too fast can cause gas irritability and vomiting. good luck
