Adam has been trying to convince me for days that we should change Jayden's formula. I said I agreed he seemed to be having stomach problems, but I felt like we should give it a few more days and see. The doctor said it could take weeks to work.
I kept thinking that it's supposed to be the best and everything I have read has said it's so gentle on their stomach that it couldn't be the cause of stomach problems. But, both of us knew he wasn't doing well.
Last night Adam made a bottle and I fed him. For the first time in days he actually ate the whole bottle and he didn't even cry while eating. He had no problem burping and he didn't spit up. I said something to Adam and he said, "That's because it's soy." That tricky, tricky man. He switched the formulas.
So, we have officially switched back to soy again.
I think the original progress we had seen with the formula was due to us starting to use Mylicon drops for his colic around that time.
They can say it's gentle and wonderful all they want, but it's still a milk based formula, and I just don't think he can have milk at all. Which is fine because we drink soy milk in this house anyway.
(Have any of you tried Silk's mint chocolate soy milk? The container says the flavor is "seasonal." It's really good. I have added it to hot chocolate and coffee, and made a smoothie with it. Yum.)
