My 3-week old baby is a bit on the gassy side so I tried Enfamil Gentlease. It's supposed to have 1/5 of the lactose and the milk proteins are already partially broken down so it's easier to digest leading to less gas. It has the same number of calories as the Enfamil Lipil (which I have been giving my baby since he was born).
The problem I am having with the Gentlease is that it seems to not satisfy his appetite. He drinks and cries, drinks and cries, the way he does when he is sucking on a pacifier and he is really hungry. He drinks it so fast like he can't get enough. And he drinks so much of it (more than the Lipil) that he starts spitting up because he overfills himself.
Does anyone know if the Gentlease, because it is already partially broken down, doesn't give him that full feeling that the Lipil does while he eats?
