My daughter is 3 weeks old. I started out breastfeeding her but my milk just never came in fully. She is on Similac Advanced, an I do pump so she gets maybe 3oz's a day of breast milk... She was pooping fine in the hospital, but as soon as we got home and she started the formula she does not poop! Her Doctor has me giving her a suppository every 36 hours so that she poops.. I am scared that she isn't pooping on her own at almost a month old :/ also now she is starting to spit up a lot after she eats, an sometimes its a while after that she eats she is spitting up... Could it be that she needs a different formula, or is there something seriously wrong??

Babies that age do spit up out extra food butt if you extra worried you should ask your pediatrician.
Can also be the similac..did you try other formulas? Like Nutrilon and Nan or the nestle formula drinks are easier on baby stomach.
My son was getting constipation from similac..ohh my that was horrible.
Good luck
