My daughter will be 5 months the 21st and overall we've had very few concerns since she was born, except the spitting up. When we brought her home she was on enfamil premium and it appeared that she was spitting up most of her bottles at each feeding. So at her 2 week appointment our doctor suggested switching to a soy based formula, so we did. She is now on enfamil prosobee lipil and it has NOT helped at all over the last several months. I've even tried several different kinds of bottles from the Dr. Browns to what we are on now which are the playtex drop-ins. The drop-ins seemed to help at first but now we are right back to where we started. We even put her on rice cereal about a month ago and it hasn't helped either. She eats cereal 3 meals a day and it doesn't really seem to weigh anything down. We've recently introduced some vegetables as well and tried making her feedings more frequently with less formula at a time and NOTHING is helping. She goes about 6 hours in between breakfast and lunch and she literally spits up from feeding to feeding. I'm just concerned that it will cause problems in the future because sometimes it smells like actual vomit, sometimes it's very chunky and sometimes it's very mucusy. And when we ask the doctor he just says it's normal, but I have a very hard time accepting that. I feel like there should be something we can do to ease up the spitting up...any suggestions?
