I was just wondering if someone could please give me some feedback :)
I took my nearly 4 month old daughter to the doctors today because she is fussy every time I bottle feed her (formula - Nestle Goodstart). It is getting increasingly frustrating for my husband and I since she is screaming, arching her back and pushing the bottle away at every feed. I feel bad for her since it seems like it hurts. I asked the doctor if he thought that it could be acid reflux but he said that since she sleeps all night with no waking up or fussiness that she is more than likely not suffering from that. So I told him that maybe I would switch her to soy. He said to try that since she could be allergic to the milk protein in the formula that she is currently eating. What I was wondering is, has anyone tried a hypoallergenic formula or soy formula that could tell me what the difference between the two is and how you would even figure out which one to use especially when it comes to a very fussy baby?
Thanks for any help :)
