Hi Moms! My daughter had horrible reactions when I supplemented only 2 oz with Gerber Good start gentle and similac supplementation separate occasions she has mainly been BF. After 2 hours of ingesting those formulas she vomiting (out of mouth and nose) 8 times and dry heaved. Checked ingredients both contain whey and lactose. After this episode she also developed congestion then ear infection. Don't know if it is related. Anyone have a similar episode?

Dr. from beginning said she had colic which doesn't really help in any way. She has been on half my breast milk and half alimentum (doesn't make her vomit but somewhat constipates her) I have also cut out dairy the past week to see if it helps.

It was. I am so scared now to try anything else, since alimentum isn't making her vomit I am sticking with that until after antibiotics. I've read that if babies have issues with milk sometimes more likely to have soy problems too. Trial and error I guess. Did your son get constipated on soy? Thanks again for your advice :)

all my first son could use was soy and I had to try them all mostly before I found that perfect one for him it was similac soy but that was more than 2 years ago
