My daughter is almost 2 weeks old and I have breastfed her since birth. But her bottom lip won't stay out and it is very painful. I'm so sore and can't continue anymore. I switched to enfamil gentelease today. I chose that one because that is what I used with my son. She seemed fine after the first bottle. Irritable 2 hours after the second bottle. Then irritable after the third. For her forth bottle I gave her expressed milk. After feeding she threw up the entire bottle. Then I gave her 2 more ounces of expressed milk. She kept that down and seems content. And is finally sleeping. My question is, how long do I give that formula before switching? And is throwing up an entire bottle ok? Should I breastfeed tonight no matter how painful?
