My baby is nearly 7 months old and has been throwing up his formula for the past 4 days (generally only the first morning bottle). He takes 8oz and generally gets sick after 4oz, even if I burp him after 2oz. Took him to the doc and she switched his formula from Similac Advance to Enfamil Gentlease and told me to add rice to his bottles for a couple of weeks. Started him on the Gentlease w/rice yesterday on his second bottle and he did fine throughout the day. This morning, he had his entire bottle without burping. I kept him elevated for 30 minutes, tried burping him again; nothing. I then changed his diaper and he got this weird look over his face and I had a bad feeling. Sure enough, he puked most of the bottle. Is the rice and new formula not the solution? What could be causing this?
