I switched my son from breast to formula at about 5 weeks... He is 9 weeks now and fussy when eating... He was eating about 3 ounces every two hours at 6 weeks but now he eats barely 2. We switched from S.S to enfamil gentlease, cold turkey as per his doctor and he told us to call in a week if it continues.. I did and he said give it 3 or 4 more days and he'll see him if he still isn't. His doctor seems unconcerned because he is gaining weight but when we went in he showed concerned by how he was reacting to being fed - he gets straight and tense and cries to the point where his face is red. I ended up changing him to soy - I know people say bad things about soy but I think he has a sensitivity to lactose and that's the problem and since the doctor isn't being to helpful I switched him myself. Anyone else going/ or have gone through this and can offer some input? Idk what to do.
