I wasn't able to breastfeed due to no milk. We had to feed formula from the beginning. I had to put my little guy on reflux meds at 6wks and after many formula switches we settled on Similac Alimentum at 8 wks. It is pricey, but worked wonders. My little guy wouldn't nap during the day, very gassy, and would projectile vomit. The formula turned him back in to my happy baby who would take 4 hour naps. It was AMAZING! Just thought I would share my experience and your Tracker sounds just like my Grayson was at his age. I highly recommend the Alimentum formula.

I have been reading your blog for sometime now and your son is adorable ... My middle son had the same feeding, gas issues that your son seems to be having. After trying breast milk and 6 different formulas we tried Similac Expert Care® Alimentum® it was the only thing that worked ... I just thought I would let you know my experience.

Just some advice on the formula. My first daughter seemed to be allergic to everything milk and soy. We switched to a hypoallergenic formula called Nutrimagen. A bit expensive but SO SO worth it. She was a different baby after that. No more colic, and spit up way less. Worth a try? Good luck!!

Alerie said...

Just thought I would share too. I took out dairy from my diet with my first and third. I ended up having to stop nursing my first due to getting pregnant andd I too had to use Enfamil's Nutramigen. My third (my baby now) I supplement with formula and I had to use Nutramigen too. Both of mine had a milk allergy and they say they will most likely grow out of it by the time they are 1. My first was 10 months old when we tried switching her to a normal formula and she was fine and my baby now I started introducing dairy again to my diet around 5 months old and he didn't seem to react so we also switch to a gentle formula and he seems to be doing fine. They say babies with diary allergies it is also very common for them to be allergic/irritated with soy. He may not be, but if you don't see that it helps that may be why. The other formula people mentioned above is the same as Nutramigen it is just Similac's version. The only reason I used the Nutramigen over the Alimentum is because it was a few dollars cheaper and both of these are already very pricey. Hope you find something that works for you. You both will be in my prayers.

Those tummy issues can be so tough :( Both my babies had them and switching them to soy made them completley different the best way! I sure hope it helps your sweet Tracker.

He's getting so big! What a cutie. My DS had reflux too -- it was miserable. Early on, we tried different formulas, including the expensive ones, and none of them helped. In fact, the Nutrimagen was the worst of anything we gave him. Finally, we tried the Lipil A.R. formula that makes and that helped some but he still struggled a lot. It took us awhile to convince the doctor, but once he was refluxing up solid foods, they gave us meds. The first one didn't help but the second, Prevacid, made a huge difference and he was a completely different kid after that. We did meds just until he was one. He still has reflux, at 6 (my DH never outgrew his either), but it's infrequent and we just give him a TUMS when he complains about the pain in his throat.

So, every kid is different, but I definitely agree with the others, trying different formulas is worth it to see if something works. Good luck!

Kendra, I have to tell you that the Picture of Tracker with the Daddy's lil hunting buddy shirt on (the one where he is alone and smiling) He looks just like Ryan!!! Its so so CUTE! I can't get over how he grows and changes from week to week. I love how everything has worked out for you and Ryan, and you have your perfect, healthy little Tracker to love on. :)
