I have been putting an ounce or less in Caitlyns bottles all along to help her with the spitting up and to maintain her weight gain. She does have some constipation but the older she gets, the better it seems since I also give her some calcium like yogurt, or some other form of milk. Her doc wants her off of formula but I am waiting until she is ready (another month or so) since when I tried regular milk, she refused to drink it. Hang in there, listen to the docs, it helped Caitlyn. Has your child been checked for hernias? Caitlyn had three -two bilateral and her belly button.
