My one month old son started off on Similac Advance. He was extremely gassy and in a lot of pain. He also had pain during bowel movements. Then I switched him to Similac Sensitive, but nothing has changed. He is still gassy and in pain. I've given him gas drops and gripe water. Those work, but only temporarily. His gassiness keeps him awake and he always seems uncomfortable and fussy. I've even played around with his bottles, which doesn't seem to help either. I burp him often during his feedings and have tried everything. After doing research online, I decided to try Similac Soy. I just started him on that tonight so I know it will be a couple days before I see results. I would just like to know other people's experiences with switching formula around and should I be consulting his doctor or is it fine that I am doing these changes on my own?

Also, I have noticed that my son will gag sometimes and swallow, but never spits anything up. Is this a sign of silent reflux? Does Soy help with silent reflux as well? I plan on going to the doctor about the reflux thing, just looking for opinions on that first.

My baby was super gassy. We went from Enfamil newborn to Similac Sensitive and no change. We then decided to try RTF Similac Sensitive and no more gas!! So, if you are on the powder version, try the RTF and see if that helps.
