Thanks for the tips!!!! Nutramigen made her colicky...thats why I was pulling my hair out!!!! But she is doing ok on Isomil, although she projectile vomited this morning...but we also just came home last night from a whirlwind trip from upstate NY, to Charlotte, then Atlanta, and back to NY in four days (family wedding[:D])...maybe she's pooped out? but, I will ask about the acid reflux thing when we go back to the doctor again. Thanks so much!

I am sorry about all the tummy troubles! Kyle was very colicky too- screaming all day and much of the night... I remember counting minutes that he didn't scream in a row! I was exclusively breastfeeding too so I changed up my diet and nothing seemed to help. My instinct told me it was reflux and sure enough it was and once we got him on Zantac he did much better... of course they didn't tell us we had to check in and adjust his dosage as he got bigger so we went through all the screaming again. A little bit of a 'duh' on our part, but when you are sleep-deprived, nothing makes much sense. The best $20 I ever spent was on one of those little wedge pillow-type cushion with the side supports. He slept through the night the first night he was on it!

At almost 10 months, he's now taking 3 bottles of formula/day and it IS expensive! So thanks for the eBay tip- I'm headed there now!

Good luck!

HI-
Re: Tummy troubles. My DD had colic etc. allergy to form. and to soy form too. Nutramigen worked great. Since allergy and Nutramigen was needed MD wrote a perscription and formula was paid for by insurance with only a copay...may want to find out about it-if possible. Used zantac for what turned out to be reflux also helped. Tried also reglan-really bad reaction to that. Elevated crib with wood blocks helped too. Best of luck...m

I'm glad that things are looking up for Emily and her little rumbly tummy! I'm sending you a link for Amazon. They sell ISOMIL formula cheaper than in the stores. Same with Huggies! And if you order more than $25, you can get free shipping. That's what I do with the diapers. It saves a bunch in the long run. Good luck!

she sleeps through the night if she sleeps next to me![:I] Otherwise, if she sleeps in the co-sleeper, she gets up about 3 or 4 am, I feed and change her, and she sleeps again until about 7 or 8....not bad![:D]

10.9! WOW! That is wonderful news. I am glad the Isomil is working. Is she sleeping through the night?

I think we found a formula that works! Isomil! I took her for her 2 month checkup today, and the doc says she is doing excellent! 10lbs 9oz...not bad after being born at 5lb 15 oz! Her poos are starting to form again, and the doc said that it is no big deal if they get mushy, as long as it is not running up her back...so we will stick with that. THANK GOD!!!! I was getting more gray hairs!!!!!

Thanks for writing back, but I am not sure if she can tolerate the nutramigen either! She had diarhea saturday night, and she hasn't had a bowel movement since...she has been on the nutramigen since Thursday. I am going to wait for her to poo one more time and see how it comes out, and if it is still soft, I will call the pediatrican back and scream HELP!!!!!

My mom says I had the same formula allergies. I would eat and it would come right out the other end. I couldnt handle Enfamil, but I tolerated Similac. I tried similac with her weeks ago and she had a hard time. Has anyone had any luck with Carnation Good STArt with the commfort protiens?
