Hi my 2 mth been having a hard time burping and he wants 2 be eating every little while. It seems like @ nice it gets worse I've given him gas drops they don't seem 2 work. My question is do u think that it's the formula? Or could it be the nursette bottles of ready made bottles? Should I pour into different bottle so he won't get fussy? Should I switch formula? Is it colic? I have like 400 of the bottles still I got from wic. Maybe should I water it down? Please help:( my poor lil thing exhausted... Adivice? Home remedies? Thank u

It will get better! For starters, don't water it down, he needs the calories right now. You say he doesn't burp well? Are you trying different positions, ie. facedown on your lap, over your shoulder, etc. When he gives you the initial "little burp" after you start, do you continue until he gets out that deeper burp that settles the formula? That was one trick I had to learn with my kids. Always had to wait for that big one :)
Give it a few nights of really REALLY continuing burping with the goal being that nice big burp and see if it helps before switching the formula, which can be an ordeal in itself. PM me if you need some more help
