Anybody who feeds formula to your baby, i have a couple of questions:

1- what formula are you using?
2- how frequently is baby eating and how much per feeding?
3- how often is baby pooping?

Now that Sofia is on formula, she has quite the struggle with pooping now! She does get the job done but boy is it a production on her part....She works so long and hard at it, she makes herself fall asleep....

1- what formula are you using? We are using enfamil nutramigen. The nicu started him on regular formula. He had tons of gas and diahrea. So they switched him to sensitive. Still having problems so we tried Good Start. No difference. A ped told us try soy. He had the worst issues on it. So I put him on nutramigen. And he's a different baby. No more all day non stop crying in pain. Slater had to be put on it when he was a baby as well.

2- how frequently is baby eating and how much per feeding? He eats 3 to 4 ounces every hour and a half to two hours. But he's a very hungry baby from day one. I've been told to try and space it out more and I've been told by his ped to feed him when he's hungry.


3- how often is baby pooping? On other formulas it was once every other day to every two days. Now on nutramegin he's more regular. They are softer and around two poops a day.

1. She takes Elecare.
2. She eats 3-4oz every 2-3 hours.
3. She has a lot of trouble pooping, so we have her take milk of mag. We are lucky if she gets one a day.

Similac

2- how frequently is baby eating and how much per feeding?

He eats every 4-41/2 hours, consuming 4 oz. When he wakes up after sleeping 6+ hours then he consumes like 5 1/2 oz

3- how often is baby pooping?

He poops every day or every other day
