Jessica - how much is he spitting up? Is it just after the feeding? Remember that a little bit of spit up actually looks like a lot more than it really is, being mixed with saliva.

With Kaylin's reflux, she spits up constantly, all day long... about every 15 minutes. And it soaks her clothes AND mine.

Your LO is so young still. Give his tummy some time... Try everything else you can before changing his formula.... even to a ready-to-feed or concentrate.
-sit up up more while he eats
-keep him sitting up-right for about 30 minutes following a feeding
-take it slow - stop him every ounce and give him a break for a few minutes
-burp him more frequently - at least twice a feeding

That is just my opinion, but I tried EVERYthing before switching her formulas.
