Quoting Kali'sMommy♥:" You should try Gentle Ease. WIC will give it to you if your Pedi writes a note and you take it into ... [snip!] ... formula (which I am assuming is the yellow one, same kind I give my 11 month old occasionally) can be hard on a newbs stomach. "
I got a free sample of that when she was 2 or 3 weeks old and tried it. She had constipation and spit up after she ate.
When WIC only gave me 1 can a month, I bought the light blue, newborn stage, with my food stamps and that one worked a little better.. except she still was spitting up.
I got a free sample of Similac in the mail and tried that and she doesn't spit up at all on it. My boyfriend told the Pedi, said we wanted a prescription to Similac Alimentum because she had collic real bad and she sent him home with 2 cans of Enfamil Nutramigen. Which was TERRIBLE. It smelled like fake cheese.
Scarlet stopped eating almost completely and I was back at the Pedi in 2 days. Where they were like "Yea, most babies think it tastes terrible." wtf?! So she's back on Enfamil Stage 1 again with a medicine to help with spit up (haven't given it to her) and I'm pissed.
I like this Pedi overall, just this has been a big issue :/
