Gassy Baby

Hi, my son is a month old and I have tried 2 different formula's for him.. enfamil A+ and nestle good start...also i have used kolic drops and oval drops but he is still really gassy and extremely hard to burp..most times it takes over an hour to get just one burp so by the time he's fed, burped and changed he is ready to be fed again therefore he isnt sleeping properly. do anyone have any suggestions on what milk would be best to use or any solutions that have worked for you?

I had my babies switched to Similac sensitive. My daughter was awful until we put her on this. I would also sit with her in my lap facing me with her legs wrapped around my stomach, I would hold her real close and lightly bounce and pat her back. It worked every time for me. Good luck.

There are two different formulas that I know of for Colic due to protein sensetivity. One is called Nutramigen (made by enfimil), and the other is Alimentum (made by similac). All 4 of my kids had to be on one of those at some point and it really made a huge difference after just one bottle. They are twice as expensive as other formula, but worth it if it makes a difference for your little one. Also, you could try gripe water. It is sold at Wal-mart, wallgreens, and health food stores. That stuff has really worked wonders on my youngest.
