my son who is 5 1/2 months old, has been spitting up since around 2 months, he was breast fed for a month, we started him on similac advance, then he had bad gas pains, so we switched to similac for fussiness and gas (orange can) but tht didnt help and he started the spitting up, so we switched to the similac soy, tht helped helped with the gas but he then started spitting up worse than on the orange can, so we switched once again to similac for spit up, helped a little but didnt cure the issue, switched to nutramigen, which helped a little more but still didnt go away comepletely, tried parents choice formula, with no luck....his idiotic doctor told me theres nothing they can do, tht its just "trial and error"!!!!! should i try the similac advanced again??

My daughter would spit up a bit after each feed and sometimes in between, the doctor and health nurse told me it was normal. Once she got to 6 months i put her on a different formula and she just stopped spitting up completly! So it is a matter of trial and error. If baby isn't in pain and loseing weight and is happy and healthy then it is probably a normal thing but it takes some time to find the right form ula. I am in Australia so i am not much help with which formula to try. Good luck.
