My daughter couldn't keep anything down when she was an infant except for Enfamil Prosobee (a soy-based formula). She stayed on it until she was 12 months and is now drinking regular soymilk. She has never had any issues (included consitpation, etc) and is in the 90% percentile for height and weight. Soy has treated her fantastic!

I had to put my daughter on the bottle at 12 weeks and had to try three different formulas before a friend suggested 'Karicare' De-Tact Lactose free formula and it worked I also added thickner to the bottle so the milk was thicker and it took longer for her to drink. Infacol helps with constipation and works but wouldn't use it continuiously as they may become dependant on it. Karicare also do a formula which is a De-Tact soy, which may help.

ask your pediatrician about any allergies you feel they might have. It might be something else going on, or nothing at all but if you aren't sure then check with the doctor first.
