Hi, my baby started off on cow and gate stage 1 she was feeding every 2.5 hours on 5oz!!! She was on this from 2 weeks!! And has put weight on FAST! she started to struggle going to the toilet so I was advised to put her on cow and gate comfort milk which sort of helped she's been on this a week now (she's 7 weeks old now) and pooing fine although the past two days she's started throwing up pretty much all if her milk after the odd bottle or two (thinking reflux) she's still on 5oz every 2.5/3 hours (I think this is too much too often??) did anybody else have this problem with the comfort milk?

I'm thinking of giving the cow and gate hungry baby milk a try! Is it any good?
😳Confused first time mummy!!

No, it is NOT obvious it isn't cows milk. Different countries have different formulas, and the way it is worded, it is not obvious to someone who has never heard of that formula. In this case, I would recommend seeing your pediatrician to find out what is going on. She may be sensitive to that formula. And at that age I would think she would still be on stage one. If you have started stage 2, she may not be able to handle it.

It's obviously not cows milk!! Cow and gate is the name of the formula, stage 2 is just a formula for thicker formula milk,

You are giving her cows milk at 7 weeks old? That is a BIG no no. She cannot digest it. She should only ONLY be on breast milk or formula. I have no idea what gate stage 1 is, I am guessing it is formula since it is stage 1? That is ALL she should be getting right now. The milk is going to upset her stomach, and cause problems.
