I have had my baby on Similac (or Target brand formula which is very similar to Similac) since he was born. I can't nurse he due to me having breast cancer in 2008 and had to have both breast removed. Within the last 3 weeks (he is 5wks old going to be 6wks on June 9th) he has been spitting up quite a bit and sometimes throwing it up. This is more than normal what a baby would do and it could be up to 45 mins later that he does it.
I run a daycare (since 2004) & I have 6 kids so I have had my share of babies and babies coming through my daycare. I decided to try Soy formula cause it worked on one of my daycare babies a few years ago. I started him on it last week on Friday and he rarely spits up now and hasn't thrown up at all. By Saturday if he was able to poop it would be small amount and very hard. I have never seem a newborn produce such hard poops.
I was wondering if any of you ladies have had this problem now or in the past with a baby and what you did. I hate to have to switch again but I do not like that he is having such problems. I know that he is still to young to have water down prune juice.
Any input would be great appreciated.
