Hi. I have a 31/2 month old little girl who constantly throws up its an all day every day thing. Ive tried A&R and regular infamil formula but she tries them up Like is spoiled milk. So I switched to sit thinking she was allergic but it's still an all day every day thing she has only gained a pound sense her two month check up doctors say she's a healthy baby but I'm worried! Is there anything to try that will help stop her from sitting up constantly?

I have had this with all 3 of my kids..
Oldest is now 6 years old, Figured out when he was 3 weeks old he had mild milk allergy. Was put on soy... He never had any weight problems but the puking was across the room along... Soy along with Reflux meds he was all good...

Middle is now 5 years old, She had other problems at birth but was found that she was only able to have Goats Milk or breast milk, she to had reflux.. She had weight issues only because she was preemie and had a birth defect..

Youngest is now 14 months old.. Had him in and out of the doctor, with them telling me it was just reflux so we tried 4 different meds for that { didn't help} So then they had me switch to soy milk { didn't help} then they had my try similac sensitive {didn't help} so after getting little sleep and having to change our clothes 30 times a day { none of our friends or family members really wanted to hold him because he puked that often and it was always like taking a shower in it} At 5 months my husband I were at Wal-Mart and decided to try finding something on our own when we found Enfamil Nutramigen dairy and soy free formula, he was a brand new little guy... He also never had any weight issues either, so our doctor kept telling us it was normal... IT'S NOT.... some doctors just don't understand when we are explaining it to them..

Hope this is helpful... best wishes and take care....

We are able to find the Goats Milk { powder } in the baking section next to the powdered milk products, also they have Condensed goats milk that you add water to it make like a 1 gallon of milk at Wal-Mart or you can find it in the Refrigerator section { in a Purple, White and Green carton}
My daughter loved the one from the refrigerated section was the only one she would drink... I just added poly- vitamins
With my son on the Nutramigen I had to warm the water then add the powder so that it would taste better otherwise he wouldn't drink it... must not taste good with room temp. water... So that made it a little tricky for going places.. He is now a 14 months and is on Silk Almond milk which he has been on since he was 8 months.. I just add poly- vitamins
Hope this is helpful... Best wishes and Take Care... Moms always know baby better then doctor.....

Infamil gentle ease is what I used on my son he had the same problem I'm not sure what they have out now but I was told goats milk as well when my son was a baby. They should be helping it's not good for your baby to be throwing up like that the bile can harm the esophagus I would go to another dr and try it because my son had similar problem and they went through a number of formulas to see which was better and finally the gentle ease he held down and it helped. That's unreal that they will not work with you. You need to stress that it's unhealthy for your child and you want to find something that will help. They say because no weight is lost they won't change it but they aren't taking into account that your baby needs to hold that formula down to get important nutrients.you are a new mother and I was in your place too sometimes you have to really express the concern or they won't listen they will take it as you are just being a new mom and worrying over nothing.
