I am a first time Mom and my little girl seems to have a sensitive stomach. I have her on good start and she seemed ok on it at first, but now she seems to have a belly ache every time I feed her. Plus she is spitting up after every meal. I want to change her formula, but would like to know what has worked well for other babies who seem to have sensitive stomachs. Thanks for any help you can give. Also is it better to slowly trade over to the new formula or just switch?

I went through hell when my 10 month old daughter was first born! She had the same problems. I finally tried Good Start Soy Plus and it worked . She spit up a lot for the first 6 months and it drove me crazy having to hide all her cute outfits with bibs but she has slowed down in the past few months.It is pretty common for babies to spit up a lot.My doctor told me that even if she drinks a 2 oz bottle and spits up 1oz she is still getting enough.She has been a very healthy baby. Never under weight. He also had me just start giving her a new formula right away because it takes a day or two for it to get in their system. I hope this might help you because i had to learn the hard way. No sleep for the first month!

both of my children had weak stomachs, so WIC told me to try Enfamil Gentle Ease Lipil w/ Iron...it worked wonders...with the ordinary, they had alot of gas and ALWAYS spit up...about 2 days after i started them on the gentle ease, that all changed...GOOD LUCK!!!

I used Similac and they have it Similac for sensitive stomachs and its only like 2 dollars more expensive than good start.

My daughter first had sma gold which is very rich it made her sick and very constipated so i changed her on to aptamil which sorted her out but you can only buy this from shops like boots, tesco, when i had my son i put him on to cow and gate which is a good one and he never had any problems

I used enfamil lipil with iron.. Started him off however on similac after stopping breastfeeding... The enfimil is so much lighter and you can see the diference between the two of the formulas.. enfamil seems to be more white whereas similac has more of a thick yellow consistency

When I stopped breastfeeding at 9 months I asked my doctor which formula to use and he recommended SIMILAC Earlyshield Advance and said it was the closest to breast milk. My daughter has not had any problems with it and adjusted almost immediately.

Thank you for all your help. We are going to try the Similac first. I'll let you all know how things go. Everyone has been so great.

i would reccommend aptimil all the way, they even do one that is for sensitive tummys, but if you think maybe ur baby has a milk intollerance or anything then ask your doctor, good luck xx

what i found with my little girl was that if she was on oridary formula she was really sicky and had belly ache alot so i put her on cow & cate comfort for colic and constipation. Since then shes been alot better less belly ache and not a sicky. Her poo isnt the nicest colour or smelling but thats a side effect, but thats one down side im happy too live with x

My daughter had this same issue. Her doctor put her on Similac Sensitive because he suspected a lactose intollerance,and then soon after Similac Sensitive RS for reflux.(reflux can cause more frequent spit-up.) She's done very well on that and is still eating it. You can also try gas drops or Gripe water for tummy troubles.

I used the Enfamil Sensitive, soy essentially. And she got a lot of Mylicon for a while. Eventually she graduated to normal formula.
