How can you tell if your child is allergic to formula?

I would take your baby to their pediatrician. My son (who is now 2) has a dairy protein allergy, which means no dairy or soy, so he had to be on Alimentum by Similac. He would be gassy, vomit (not just a little spit-up) and he was constipated/loose stools. He had little patches of eczema. It's a tough time trying to figure out what works best for them so hang in there and hopefully you will figure it out soon!! Hang in there and go with your gut feeling. My son's pedia tried to keep him on Soy but I knew something wasn't right so I took him to a specialist. That's how we found out he had a dairy protein allergy.

Hope this helps! :-)

one of my girls was allergic to the standard formulas. she would vomet it up within minutes of feeding...she lost weight and was fussy. We switched her to a soy formula and she held that down. I would take your lil one in to see your doctor if you have concerns. It simple could be that they cant digest the formula you are using or there may be other issues. Good luck.
