Hi, My second baby was very sicky and it was a total shock to me as my first son wasn't sicky at all. My health visitor told us to try him on sma staydown milk (you will only find it from boots) and i noticed a big difference. My doctor tryed him on gaviscon but i didnt see any improvement. The doctor told me it was just a reflux problem and as he got older it would get better. It took till my son was 11 months old before it stoped, Hope i have been of some help, good luck.

My 7 month old was that way and we put her on Gentelease and she did wonderful. We still do not give her anything but the formula and oatmeal with pears daily. She is doing great and feeling great.

My first baby (breastfed) was ridiculously sicky - she seemed to vomit more than she consumed. The Health Visitor reckoned it was because my milk flow was too fast for her to cope with but I thought that was a ridiculous idea as she was so hungry (due to the vomiting no doubt) that I had to feed almost constantly so had empty breasts half the time! It was only when I started her on solids that I noticed a connection between dairy products and increased sickness, and I only managed to convince the Health Visitor that was the problem when she was about 9 months old. She eventually "grew out" of the lactose intolerance.

Have you considered this as a possibility and tried non-dairy milk?

I hope it works for you, just to let you know that sma staydown is very different to normal sma, you have to make it with cold boiled water. Its very easy when you get used to it. Good luck

try similac sensitive, my son had a very bad stomach and cried all the time. I put him on that formula and used gas drops before everytime he ate and it helped. He grew out of it about 5 months.

do you lie your baby down after a feed? if you do then maybe try to keep him up rite in a bouncer chair or on your lap as this helps to keep his milk down , my son tends to be sick sum times as he likes to roll on his tummy alot my health visitor suggested this after his feeds and hes not sick any more unles a play with him lol hope this helps x
