What kind of formula do you use and why? I'm trying to find the right formula for my daughter who is very fussy and spits up alot.

I started out with Enfamil Lipil. My dd was fussy and spit up a lot and was diagonsed with reflux and put on meds. She still was miserable so I switched her to Enfamil GentleEase at 4 months...that was a mistake...she spit up even more. I went back to Enfamil Lipil, but the spitting up continued (but less often) at 7 months I wondered if she was allergic to milk protein so I tried the Enfamil Nutrimagen (very $). I mix it with the Enfamil Lipil (1/3 Nut. 2/3 Lipil) b/c dd didn't liek the taste. Even mixing, I found that that helped with the spit up a lot. DD only spits up 1x a day now and before it was 4-6x. I can't say it helped w/the fussiness/colic. That went away around 5 months and we didnt try Nut. until 7 months.

My son was on Similac Alimentum for 4 months because he had MSPI. At 4 month he switched to Enfamil GentleEase and at 6 months he will try a regular formula.

My daughter had reflux and spit up badly. We went through 5 formulas till we started using Enfamil AR and we fed her smaller amounts more frequently, then would keep her upright after eating and try not to bounce her around much.,

I was using enfamil after I b___stfed for 3 months, but it was just too expensive even though it worked well. I started using the Lactose Free by Parents Choice (walmart brand), even though we dont think ds is lactose intolerant. It works well, and he hasnt been ga__sy or fussy since we started using it. :) Hope this helps!

I've always liked the Good Start formula. I've never had any problems with it, used it with all 3 of my girls. With my first I started out with Enfalac, that did not sit very well with dd so I switched and her tummy took that one a lot better, so I just used it ever since. With my lo now I started her on the Good Start follow up for 6-18 mos. The transition didn't bother her too much, I also find it fills her up longer and she sleeps through the night now. It's cheaper too.
